This BCS Voices discussion evening will focus on how we can transform our world through trust, governance and consent. We will analyse whether it is possible for Scotland to build citizen-centric public services at scale, and for us to build truly smart cities. Some key questions to explore might include: Why do we not vote on-line? Why can’t have a citizen-centric health and well-being infrastructure? Do we trust our government to build a citizen focused infrastructure? How can we secure data in order to build smart cities? If other countries can build trusted on-line systems, what are our barriers? To set the scene, Professor Bill Buchanan OBE will outline his viewpoints to facilitate audience discussions.
