Machining Civics

Michael Manalo

This working group will be playing in the space of Civic Tech, Al/Machine Learning, and Open Data. Civic technology is meant to enable engagement, participation between the people and government-  by enhancing citizen communications and public decision, improving government delivery of service, and infrastructure. We will be discussing and exploring these tropes and themes of Open Data Governance and the contexts that come up when paired with AI and Machine Learning. We will also visit a local So-Cal data science conference and speak with writers and critics, and contemplate the role of the designer in this space.
