The Third Annual Safety Datapalooza is being held today from 9 AM to 1 PM ET at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The event will be livestreamed at http://livestream.com/uspto/SafetyDatapalooza.
From 10:50 – 11:30 AM ET, the Innovation for Disaster Response and Recovery Initiative will be featured during a panel moderated by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. Panelists from the National Institutes of Health, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Department of Energy, U.S. Geological Survey, and the Data.gov team will discuss recent technology and innovation milestones, #opendata efforts, and opportunities for public engagement.
This year’s Safety Datapalooza will provide an overview of ongoing programs as well as new commitments. Senior government representatives will join innovators from private, nonprofit, and academic organizations, sharing examples of projects that have used freely available government data to build products, services, and apps that advance public safety in creative and powerful ways.
The event will include new safety data resources in the areas of transportation, food, occupational, and consumer product safety, as well as tools to improve disaster preparedness and emergency response.
