Strides in machine learning, cloud computing and data mining & analysis are poised to transform organizations and economies. They also hold great potential for strengthening the efficacy of social accountability and citizen engagement mechanisms. Sadaf and Milos from Cognitiks, a technology and consulting company, present an overview of the opportunities and relevant technologies it has developed that can be used by citizens, governments and external actors. They demo solutions that can assist with citizen engagement, managing grievances, ensuring transparency in project implementation and in closing the feedback loop. This session provides opportunity to brainstorm how these new technologies and data science can be used for strengthening social accountability and improving development outcomes.
