About DWEL

Project Launch Announcement

Resources & Exploration

The Internet has made sharing vast amount of data easier and more economical than ever before. Combined with new ways to process and analyze data, we are starting to see the promise held by data-driven innovation to improve health around the world, better understand climates, and to positively impact countless other aspects of our lives.  But before this promise can be realized, we need a global forum for education and discussion relating to the social policy concerns surrounding data collection and use.  Ultimately, we need to reach reasonable and responsible consensus paths forward if we are to fully achieve the promises of data-driven innovation.

I believe that the DWEL project is extremely well positioned to play an important role in achieving this critical objective, and I very much look forward to the ongoing results of its efforts.

Data and analytics are fundamentally changing our world.  As sensors continue to proliferate and this data continues to converge, we will experience extraordinary societal benefits: optimization of natural resources, breakthroughs in medicine, and a deeper understanding of the universe we live in.  Unfortunately, this unstoppable and irresistible journey we are on has far outpaced mankind's policies and laws.

It is with this in mind that I am enthusiastic about the DWEL project and hold high hopes that it will advance the global conversation, debate, and education in the area of information and analytics policy.
