Commissioners Court hosts futuristic info panel

Thursday, July 11, 2019 by Tai Moses

The Travis County Commissioners Court has decided it’s time to get smart about 21st-century technologies like artificial intelligence, autonomous vehicles and (maybe) robots. Commissioner Brigid Shea has invited a panel of tech leaders to brief the court on the impact emerging technologies could have on local government and how the county could best prepare itself and residents for what lies ahead. The panel includes Meme Styles, president and founder of the nonprofit Measure; Tyson Tuttle, CEO of Silicon Labs; Lemuel C. Williams, director of partner development at Adaptus LLC; and Peter Zandan, global vice chairman for data and analytics at Hill + Knowlton. The panel convenes on Thursday, July 11, 1:30 p.m., Travis County Commissioners Courtroom, 700 Lavaca St., 1st floor.
