Guest of the Week (7/29)
Daniel Morgan, Chief Data Officer, US Department of Transportation
Congratulations Daniel! You are theCUBE Guest of the Week.
The transportation systems across the United States collect a vast amount of data — from the roadways to the railways, as well as air traffic and anything that travels. The federal government is collecting this data to improve travel safety and efficiency for citizens nationwide.
Daniel Morgan, Chief Data Officer (CDO) at the US Department of Transportation (DOT), is the first CDO working for a cabinet agency, and he is leading the charge to make government data safe, useful and valuable. Stu Miniman (@stu) and Paul Gillin(@pgillin), cohosts of theCUBE, from the SiliconANGLE Media team, talked to Morgan at the MIT CDOIQ Symposium in Cambridge, MA, to get a behind-the-scenes look at what it means to be a government CDO.
