EFF Austin, a local organization in the Electronic Frontier Alliance, (not EFF) will host this event:

LifeFiles: A Presentation from the City of Austin's Innovation Office

From the Organizers:

Our speakers this month are:

  • Daniel Culotta, Acting Chief Innovation Officer of the City of Austin.
  • Kerry O’Connor, founder of the City of Austin Innovation Office.

LifeFiles is a secure document storage platform that allows people to upload, store, and share their documents digitally. It also facilitates digital document notarization. With a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, a City of Austin team designed, built, and tested it with people experiencing homelessness to facilitate access to services. The presentation will cover the platform’s design principles (private, secure, self-determinant, accessible, and extensible) and the underlying technical architecture that makes them possible. The presentation will close with a status of the minimum viable product and a discussion around next steps.

This workshop will take place online via Zoom. Please RSVP to receive the Zoom link prior to the event.
