Digital transparency in the public realm workshop by Sidewalk Labs

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this session, you’ll be participating in a co-design session that will provide inputs into open-source design patterns and tools to imagine how we might increase digital transparency in the public realm.

As technology progresses, it provides new opportunities to help our public spaces become more comfortable, responsive, and efficient. But all technology in the public realm must be considered within the context of the people who live in those places.

By participating in this session, you’ll be contributing to an initial draft of open standards and design patterns aimed at bringing meaningful transparency to the many technologies that exist and are used in the public realm today.

Sidewalk Labs’ goal is to make these concepts publicly and freely available for others to adopt, use and build upon, so that we can advance digital literacy and help people understand digital infrastructure in the public realm.
