We live in a data-filled society. Social media, Web browsers, mobile devices and vehicles collect it; governments collect it and share it with constituents; programmers use it to create apps and maps and websites that make it easier for the average Joe to digest and use.

But what should be done about policy aimed at spurring innovation with all this data? That's what Data Innovation Day 2014 is all about. The event, held today (Jan. 23), in Washington, D.C., brings together experts from every sector to "share ideas and perspectives on how data is transforming our economy and society."

The day is filled with panel discussions, lightning talks, keynote presentations and a technology expo that showcases the benefits of data.

Couldn't make it to D.C. to participate? We've got you covered. Two of our reporters, Hilton Collins (@HiltonCollins) and Jason Shueh (@JasonShuehatGT), are live-tweeting many of the panels.
