On June 12, we had a great event about earth-observing satellite data, with Dr. Hui Su from NASA JPL as our speaker, thanks to our sponsor WeEducation and the New School of Cooking in Pasadena.
On July 17 at the same great location, let us gather together again to gain some insights on the newest developments of city open data.
Our speaker will be Dr. Jeane Holm, who is a senior technology advisor to the mayor of Los Angeles. As some of us may know, Jeanne works at the cross-section of civic innovation, open data, and education. She is the Deputy CIO at the City of Los Angeles, working on issues ranging from homelessness to digital equity technology innovation, data and analytics, and public-private partnerships. As a senior consultant with the World Bank, she worked with governments throughout the world to build robust open data ecosystems and ensure transparency. She was the Evangelist for open data for the U.S. White House, leading collaboration and building communities on Data.gov with the public, educators, developers, and international and state governments in using open government data. She was the Chief Knowledge Architect at NASA, driving innovation through social media, virtual worlds, gaming, and collaborative systems, including the award-winning NASA public portal (www.nasa.gov).
