Data Sharing and Platform Urbanism: Contested Digital Sovereignty in the Emergent ‘Smart City’

Wed., Apr. 13, 2022 | 5:00pm - 6:00pm


Does data about the city belong to the city? Who should have the right to civic data generated by private digital technologies and services deployed in urban space?

Join TAPP fellow Stephen Larrick and a group of experts as they explore the implications and discuss best practices for practitioners—and how to hold them accountable as they navigate sometimes competing interests of tech oversight, user privacy, and community needs.
