Open source intelligence (OSINT) and emerging technologies, including artificial intelligence and distributed ledgers, such as blockchain, hold vast potential to transform public services held back by bureaucracy and outdated IT systems. The collaborative workshop OSINT 2017 opens the doors to bold, fresh ideas for government accountability, transparency and citizen participation by working with businesses, civil society groups and others to shape goals for emerging technologies and open data in public services. At this upcoming collaborative workshop, Emerging Technology and Open Source Intelligence for a More Open Government, we invite participants to craft potential goals to be integrated into innovative products and services. The workshop will be hosted at the citizenM London Bankside hotel on October 30 2017 by Market Research Media. It will tap into private and public sector expertise to foster innovation in public service designed by and for citizens.
