Aneesh Chopra, US Office of Science and Technology

If productivity growth highly correlates with GDP growth, this means sectors with productivity gains can help achieve overall economic growth, says Aneesh Chopra, Chief Technology Officer of the United States. Chopra identifies three sectors in need of major productivity gains: healthcare, education and government. He also explains that many of the gains could be achieved through improved management of data.
