From a Billion to One: Getting Personal with Crowd-Based Data

Citizens and crowd-based data

July 9, 2015 | 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. (EDT) | Ottawa, Ontario or by webcast

Today's proliferation of data on the habits, preferences and decisions of billions of people means that products and services can be tailored to meet client needs more effectively than ever.

Like the private sector, the public service can use insights gained from data from the crowd to create a truly world-class, personalized client experience for the individual. This event will explore the possibilities and the challenges involved in engaging citizens as co-creators—not just end users—of policy and programs.

Join guest speaker Paul Macmillan, Deloitte's Global Public Sector Leader, to learn how predictive analytics and behavioural science can drive innovation in the public service, promoting excellence both in creating policy and in serving Canadians.
