Sidewalk Labs

Piya Chattopadhyay

Host, CBC Radio’s
Out in the Open

Daniel Doctoroff founded Sidewalk Labs, in partnership with Google, in 2015. The urban innovation company is focused on developing products, services and platforms at the intersection of the physical and digital worlds to help make cities more efficient, responsive, resilient and green. In October, Sidewalks Labs was chosen by Waterfront Toronto as its innovation and funding partner for an ambitious redesign of Quayside.
 Prior to founding Sidewalk Labs, Doctoroff was President and CEO of Bloomberg L.P.
 He also served as Deputy Mayor for Economic Development and Rebuilding for the City of New York under Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Piya Chattopadhyay is host of CBC Radio’s Out in the Open, an adventurous and wide-ranging weekly exploration of how one timely topic is affecting regular people. A long-time fixture in Canadian broadcasting, Piya is often described as a “swiss army knife” for her versatility in hosting numerous radio and TV programs, including The Current (CBC), Q (CBC), and The Agenda (TVO).
Piya also spent more than a decade in the field as a news reporter here in Canada, but was often on the road, reporting from Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, India, Kenya, the U.K., and France, to name but a few places. From 2007 to 2009, Piya was the Middle East Correspondent for Fox News Radio, based in Jerusalem, but travelled and covered the Middle East region extensively, reporting stories on war and conflict, peace and politics, and coping with everyday life.
