Closing Remarks: Tech for resilient communities

This track will examine processes and techniques for developing technology in conjunction with community partners, following a social science-driven methodology which can lead to more effective, inclusive innovations with greater benefits at the local level.

Highlights include discussions with community organizers working with established and emerging scholars to study how to improve community healthcare, protect the data of society’s most vulnerable members, disrupt human trafficking, and monitor urban air quality. The track will also include a demonstration of Project Eclipse, a sensor network managed by communities to measure air quality at the neighborhood level.
