Join the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy and the Science, Technology, and Public Policy (STPP) Program for a Policy Talks @ the Ford School conversation with former New York City mayor, Bill de Blasio. In conversation with STPP Director Professor Shobita Parthasarathy, the discussion will explore how urban tech is shaping social policy in “smart cities” like New York and beyond. How can we ensure that emerging technology serves the public interest, and what role can local, state, national, and even international policy play?
