Meredith Whittaker and Thomas Gideon on Scientifically Verifiable Broadband Policy

Measurement Lab (M-Lab) is a collaborative effort founded by Vint Cerf and a large body of network researchers, dedicated to creating an Internet-scale ecosystem for truly open network measurement.

Measurement Lab allows researchers the ability to run open source broadband measurement tools on well-managed, near global infrastructure. WIth this data, made publicly available, M-Lab is creating a paradigm for collaborative science as the foundation for good, data-based policy.

Meredith Whittaker — Program Manager for Google Research — and Thomas Gideon — technical director for the Open Technology Institute at New America Foundation — discuss the M-Lab's network measurement architecture, and what is (and can be) done with the data it collects.
