In conversation with Audrey Tang

Audrey Tang, Taiwan’s Digital Minister in charge of Social Innovation, is my guest today on Inside Ideas. Audrey became Taiwan’s youngest ever government minister at the age of 35 and has wowed the world with her leadership on the coronavirus crisis, following the impact she made in Japan by creating an app that combats the virus by showing face mask inventory levels at a glance.

A civic hacker, she made the 2019 list of 100 global thinkers published by Foreign Policy magazine and is known for revitalising global open source communities such as Perl and Haskell.

Prior to joining the cabinet, Audrey was a consultant with Apple on computational linguistics, with Oxford University Press on crowd lexicography, and with Socialtext on social interaction design.
