Chief Data Officer Mark Headd is working toward making Philadelphia rich in data.
“Data is the currency of the future,” he said, “and increasingly, it’s the currency of the present.”
Below, watch interviews with Headd and other city officials talking about the city’s innovation efforts, like community engagement project PhillyRising, computer lab network KEYSPOT and the city’s involvement with hackathons. Appearances by John Farrell of PhillyRising and Andrew Buss of KEYSPOT, among others.
The video, by local firm Skout Media, is the second in a series on innovation. Watch the first here. It’s part of the Nutter administration’s effort to brand the city as a place that embraces change, or, as Chief Innovation Officer Adel Ebeid put it, “an innovation-friendly city.”
