PlaceSpeak on Web Summit’s People’s Stage
Wednesday is a big day for PlaceSpeak at the Web Summit:
Web Summit People’s Stage
PlaceSpeak founder and CEO, Colleen Hardwick will be presenting on the People’s Stage in the Simmonscourt venue at 12:50 Dublin (GMT) time. She will be speaking about ‘Digital ID and GeoAuthentication.’ Here is a summary of Colleen’s presentation:
Making it Real: Digital ID and GeoAuthentication
Online consultation to date has been anonymous and not tied to place. As a result, the feedback data is unreliable as evidence to adequately inform decision-making and public policy development. White-labeled surveys, and black-box market research panels are insufficient to providing the open and transparent process desperately needed to build trust. Furthermore, sentiment analysis based on social media is “garbage in, garbage out” as a source of defensible evidence for the purposes of both the public and private sector.
PlaceSpeak is ground-breaking because it solves the problem of how to consult with people online within specific geographical boundaries authentically. It solves the problem of protecting individual privacy at the same time as providing vetted feedback data through adhering to privacy by design principles. Most importantly, PlaceSpeak is a game-changer because it addresses the profound cynicism currently infecting our democracy by providing an open, accessible, dynamic, transparent and defensible system for public consultation.
