- Key questions:
- What is the role of an Open Government Advocate? How do you engage with departmental and agency stakeholders?
- How does an Open Government Advocate balance opening up government data sets and addressing privacy concerns?
- You have spoken before about the Edelman Barometer and its findings as to a growing deficit of citizen trust. What possibilities do you see for reducing that deficit?
- How does the open government/privacy division of responsibilities and coordination between State and Federal regulators work in practice?
- Are those working arrangements sustainable?
- Are there particular fields of activity, such as health and biometrics, where this division between State and Federal regulators is more difficult to manage?
- You have thought and written about innovative governance models for emerging technologies. Do we have the right governance model for management of health information and biometrics? If not, what's wrong, and what do you see as the priorities for fixes?
- Does privacy regulation work? If not, are there gaps that can readily be filled through good practice?
- Do we have sensible ethical frameworks for assessing data analytics involving health information and biometrics? What human skills and operating processes are appropriate in order to properly apply those ethical frameworks?
- Algorithmic discrimination is attaching attention as a regulatory concern. Is this attention justified?
- What do you consider to be the challenges that should be more immediately addressed?
- Why is a data analytics business expanding into health data analytics? How do third party providers add value that can't or isn't being done within government?
- Discovery has rapidly expanded its health insurance business in the United Kingdom. What is Discovery's value proposition for prospective customers that has enabled this rapid expansion?
- What are the big problems in management of health that health data analytics can more readily help to solve?
- Where do 'personal wellness devices' figure in to solving problems in management of health? Are they a fad? What about other Internet of Things devices or applications?
- What are the barriers to solving problems in management of health? Do they arise from (say) difficulties of obtaining consent, other operation of regulation, legitimate concerns of health data custodians, HREC or PIA review processes, fears as to adverse reaction by patients or the public, or other factors? How can we better address reduction of these barriers? Where should we start?
