The Newsmakers Committee of The National Press Club, Washington DC, will host government and industry software experts to address data advances and innovation at a Newsmaker forum in the Club’s Zenger Room at 2:00 p.m. Wednesday, December 10th in the National Press Building, 529 14th St. NW, Washington, D.C.

The group will hold an expert discussion about how data really works, the promise of continued innovation and the need to foster a policy environment that ensures society captures the maximum possible benefit. Innovative new software, vast computing power and connected devices have taken us to a new era of data innovation, changing the way the world identifies and solves problems. The benefits of this innovation extend to nearly every aspect of business, the economy and modern society, but the increasing abundance of data also has raised questions for many people, and it has fed misperceptions.

Newsmaker speakers at this event will include Victoria Espinel, former Bush Administration Intellectual Property Czar; Bruce Andrews, Deputy Secretary of the US Department of Commerce; John Nesi, VP Market Development at Rockwell Automation; and Dr. Jane Snowdon, Chief Innovation Officer at IBM.

This newsmakers event is open to credentialed media and press club members, free of charge. No advance registration is required.
