Opportunities and Risks with Data and Algorithms (rebroadcast)


This keynote address by Melissa Hathaway brings a unique perspective on the intersection of government policy, developing technological and industry trends, and the economic drivers that impact acquisition and strategy. Learn how the Government of Canada is using data and the insights gained to provide better value and services to Canadians.

The Data Conference 2022 event is being rebroadcast from May 9 to May 13 to allow those who missed it the opportunity to learn from leading experts about data foundations, data as a public good, data insights through collaboration, and other related topics. This year's theme highlights the importance of supporting the government's commitment to provide better data, insights and services for all Canadians, and it's success would not have been possible without a close collaboration with Statistics Canada and the GC Data Community.

Data Conference 2022 responds to the urgent need to fill data knowledge gaps in areas such as diversity and inclusion, the environment, and economic recovery. Participants will become better aware of the opportunities and the challenges along the path towards a more inclusive and economically competitive Canada, where data is leveraged to support evidence-based decision making and ensure that all Canadians are included in public policy solutions to resolve national challenges.
