'Ask Johns Creek' about Open Data & Alexa
Authors: Nick O'Day, Gavin Rehkemper
In 2016, the City of Johns Creek launched the first municipal open data site in the state of Georgia. The site has helped increase transparency, focus debate on facts, and enable crowdsourcing initiatives. But the story doesn't end here. Recently, the City launched the first Alexa skill designed to more easily connect citizens to open data. This presentation will show how the 'Ask Johns Creek' skill was created, how it's helping citizens, and why it's a game-changer for economic development.
