The Data Effect
The Chateau Laurier
Ottawa, ON, Canada
April 12 & 13, 2017

 

Canada’s future prosperity is linked to the ability of its citizens, businesses and government to maximize the use of our data resources, as well as maximize the opportunities that disruptive technologies can offer, for the public good.

The seventh edition of The Data Effect, organized by CityAge on April 13th, 2017 in Ottawa, will look at how to build a national strategy that uses new tools in data — such as big data, AI and quantum computing — to build an innovation economy. These new opportunities can promote economic productivity, prove Canada as a sustainable resource exporter, make government more responsive and efficient, and encourage a healthier nation.

To date, more than 1,500 leaders from across North America and Europe have attended The Data Effect. This seventh edition of The Data Effect will continue to build the network of leaders who are achieving real progress in the use of data to improve the economy and society.  

For further information please contact Marc Andrew (marc@cityage.org, 778 835 0633) or Miro Cernetig (miro@ciyage.org 778-865-1557) at any time.
