Event Details

JOIN NYU WAGNER & OPENPLANS AS WE RETHINK GOVERNMENT REGULATION AROUND THREE PRESSING PROBLEMS - LIFE-THREATENING, NONCOMPLIANT "CHINATOWN" BUSES, ILLEGALLY CONVERTED APARTMENT RENTALS, AND food PRICE GOUGING IN NEWARK, NJ!

Because of government regulation, we have things like clean drinking water and paved roads. But, in this era of mobile computing and big data, we can do regulation in a smarter way.  In a way that is more efficient, adaptive, and responsive. Technology, like peer-to-peer networks and apps, can put more eyes on the ground allowing everyday citizens to aid regulators in areas that are difficult to oversee like that of Chinatown buses and illegal apartment conversions in NYC and price gouging in Newark, NJ. 

That's where you come in. With your help, we can use technology to make the everyday lives of citizens safer by rethinking regulation in the areas of Chinatown buses, food price gouging, and illegal apartment conversions. 

Participants do not need to have a coding background!  All individuals with ideas and passion to make this city better can register!  

Registration is free, and all you need to bring is an appetite for innovation and your laptop.  Coffee, WiFi, and a detailed overview of the problems in each area will be available at the event. Experts will also be on hand to answer any questions regarding illegal apartment conversions, food price gouging, or Chinatown buses.
