Technology holds a vast potential to change the way government runs and transform public service.
Emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, and cloud computing are disruptive forces for change that can ultimately improve government services and operations through lowered costs, increased efficiency, and better citizen services and engagement.
In December 2017, Nextgov is taking a trip out West to Los Angeles, California, to talk with some of the most tech-savvy federal officials today and explore how they’re using emerging technologies to transform government.

Nextgov contributors include influential thinkers across government, academia and the private sector providing fresh and provocative insights on key federal IT topics.
