The Importance of Public Service #ChangeAgents in Exponential Times by David Bray, CIO of the FCC  (Special Events)

The Quello Center Presents: David Bray, CIO of the FCC

Technology is rapidly changing our world, the 7 billion networked devices in 2013 will double 14 billion in 2015 to anywhere between 50 to 200 billion in 2020. The ability to work and collaborate securely anywhere, anytime, on any device will reshape public service. Greater transparency of activities and budgets within and outside institutions will enable choice architectures to increase effectiveness. We must ensure security and privacy are baked-in at code development level, testing from ground up and automating alerts. Legal code and digital code must work together, enabling more inclusive work across government workers, citizen-led contributions, and public private partnerships. Institutions must encourage and empower positive change agents on the inside to pioneer end-to-end innovation. Institutions must also open their data for greater public interaction, citizen-led remixing, and discussions. All together, these actions will transform Public Service to truly be "We the (Mobile, Data-Enabled, Collaborative) People" working to improve our world.

Biographical Sketch of FCC CIO Dr David Bray:
Dr. David Bray currently serves as the Chief Information Officer (CIO) for the Federal Communications Commission but began working on computer simulations for the U.S. Department of Energy at age 15, to later design new telemedicine interfaces and space-based forest fire forecasting prototypes for the Department of Defense. In 2000, he joined as IT Chief for the Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Program at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, leading the program's technology response to 9/11, anthrax in 2001, Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, and other international emergencies. He later completed a PhD in Information Systems from Emory University and two post-doctoral associateships at MIT and Harvard. In 2009, Dr. Bray volunteered to deploy to Afghanistan to help "think differently" on military and humanitarian issues and in 2010 became a Service Executive advocating for information interoperability, cybersecurity, and protection of civil liberties. In 2012, Dr. Bray became the Executive Director for the bipartisan National Commission for Review of Research and Development Programs of the United States Intelligence Community, later receiving the National Intelligence Exceptional Achievement Medal. He received both the Arthur S. Flemming Award and Roger W. Jones Award for Executive Leadership in 2013, and currently serves as term member of the Council on Foreign Relations and as an Oxford Martin Visiting Fellow. In 2015, David was selected as a recipient of an Eisenhower Award and was named as the most social CIO by Forbes.
