Keynote 1: What is a People Centered Approach and Why It Matters?
8:45 am - 9:00 am, Mei Lin Fung, Co-Chair, People Centered Internet
The world produces 328.77 terabytes of data daily. This information can be used to achieve the SDGs and shape a positive digital future IF the data is accessible as a global good and permissioned by those who produce it. This session will outline what it means to take a people centered approach to data collection and use, illustrate why this change now matters, and discuss current examples in health service delivery, financial service development, national digital transformation efforts, and more on how this can be implemented in practice so that policymakers and scientists can work collaboratively to harness the available information today to shape the future we all want tomorrow.
Panel 1: People Centered Health Data Collaboratives: How they work and how they can be improved for global use  
9:00: am -10:30 am
How do we harness responsibly the vast amount of health information that has been created and stored by devices but too often is siloed and inaccessible to the scientific community?  This session focuses on the use of health data collaboratives to make this information accessible to scientists and practitioners, the regulatory issues that need to be considered and/or changed, and discusses the promise and pitfalls of the use of personal data.
