It’s that time of year again! March may feel like months away, but we’re getting ready for South by Southwest’s Interactive Festival in 2019.

Last year, Nevillle Pattinson successfully spoke about facial recognition in travel, and this year we are partnering with some of our pilot participants to discuss digital driver’s license!

But we need your help! Speakers are chosen through an online tool, and public voting constitutes thirty percent of the overall score. So take a look at our session below and cast your vote!

States Innovate and Citizen Identities Go Digital

Not every state is on the same roadmap when it comes to modernizing government services, processes and everyday conveniences via emergent digital technology. As with any government decision, stakeholders with vastly different priorities and end goals take varying lengths of time to weigh in, strategize and agree to move forward (which is often easier said than done). Through the lens of a case study about a digital driver’s license pilot commissioned by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) that involves three of the panelists, state govtech experts will discuss potential pitfalls, actionable tips and lessons learned along the road to effective collaboration for the betterment of states’ citizens.
