City of San Jose Launches New Equity Through Data and Privacy Program

  • 2 mths ago

SAN JOSÉ, CA – Today, San José Mayor Sam Liccardo announced the launch of a new program to improve City services through data with a focus on strengthening digital privacy protections. Through a three-year, $750,000 investment from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the City is taking a comprehensive approach to understanding and implementing data analytics to better serve and engage underserved communities, measure impact, and deliver services equitably.

Guided by the Mayor’s Office of Technology and Innovation (MOTI), the City’s Information Technology Department, and the Office of Racial Equity, teams will harness data analytics across departments to improve City services and the experience of residents; support residents who are working with City staff to steer COVID-19 Community and Economic Recovery investments, including $2 million from the Mayor’s Budget Message; and continue digital privacy efforts. San José is among a small number of cities that are at the forefront of leading discussions on the responsible use of sensing technologies. At the grant’s conclusion, City staff will be better at rendering accessible and equitable services, and at balancing the privacy of San José’s residents as technologies can reach deeper into peoples’ lives.
