Video Type: Tutorial


Auto scroll

Keith Porcaro, fellow at the Harvard Berkman Klein Center and co-founder of the Digital Public Project, discusses some of the current risks to public-interest technology and how these can be reduced, including the relationship between business models, public-interest technology, and failure; the limitations of open sourcing products; effects of data silos, privacy protection, and data breaches; application of fiduciary duty to public-interest technology; and the benefits of a digital trusteeship program such as Digital Public. A question-and-answer period follows covering data trusts versus data repositories, deciding on a trustee, blockchain within data clouds, and incentives for establishing public-interest data trusts.
