State and Local Experiences with Mobile Location Tech: Past, Present, and Future
Since the “on the ground” experience with contact-tracing and other forms of mobile location technology is most often a state or local initiative, it is instructive to engage governors, county commissioners, and mayors who have led (or currently are leading) the way. How these leaders, from these different jurisdictional scales, have thought to share information, act on information, and protect citizens with this information in thoughtful and innovative ways. How they have navigated the many multi-scalar issues, with overlapping jurisdictions, each with different legal authorities, and resource profiles, is key to understanding how mobile location technologies will manifest as helpful or harmful tools as we combat COVID-19, or in future surveillance scenarios. This Blue-Ribbon Panel will bring together leaders from state and local jurisdictions to explore this complex set of issues, with an eye for both characterizing the problem, and creatively thinking about the future solution space.
