Rapport de la 3ème conférence internationale sur les données ouvertes

Rapport de la 3ème conférence internationale sur les données ouvertes | Data for Development | Scoop.it

La 3e Conférence internationale sur les données ouvertes qui a été tenue à Ottawa les 28 et 29 mai 2015 a été une grande réussite. Avec plus de 1000 participants, 58 groupes de discussions et ateliers, dix voies parallèles, plus de 200 intervenants et plus de 29 événements connexes sur neuf jours, la CIDO a été un regroupement réellement mondial.


Nous sommes heureux de présenter le rapport final de la Conférence internationale sur les données ouvertes intitulé « Enabling the Data Revolution: An International Open Data Roadmap » (Habiliter la révolution en matière de données : une feuille de route internationale des données ouvertes).

Ce rapport est fondé sur de nombreuses discussions qui ont été tenues à Ottawa lors de la CICO, et résume les thèmes et les débats clés, tout en fournissant une vision partagée des prochaines étapes pour la communauté de la CIDO. Il n’est pas conçu comme un énoncé unique sur les données ouvertes, mais comme un compte rendu organisé des discussions et des débats offrant un aperçu des problèmes clés et établissant la marche à suivre en fonction des visions, des idées et des ententes étudiées lors de la CIDO.

Données ouvertes et big data

Données ouvertes et big data | Data for Development | Scoop.it

Disposer de données fiables permet aux gouvernements d’élaborer et évaluer des politiques plus efficaces et aux acteurs de prendre de meilleures décisions. Les statistiques agricoles ont fait l’objet d’un certain désamour jusqu’au milieu des années 2000. Depuis, on observe un réinvestissement qui s’inscrit dans un monde où les données sont démultipliées.

From ICT4D to D4D (Data for development)?

From ICT4D to D4D (Data for development)? | Data for Development | Scoop.it

What would it mean if data replaces ICTs as the core focus for informatics in international development? For many years there have been concerns about the techno-centricity of ICT4D: the assumption that technology, alone, can be sufficient to generate development; and the failure to recognise the wider contextual factors that govern the impacts of technology.  Moving to a data-centric view helps a bit: it moves us to think about the stuff that technology handles, rather than the technology per se.

The Anxieties of Big Data

The Anxieties of Big Data | Data for Development | Scoop.it

What does the lived reality of big data feel like?


2014 is the year we learned about Squeaky Dolphin. That’s the Pynchon-worthy code name for a secret program created by British intelligence agency GCHQ to monitor millions of YouTube views and Facebook likes in real time. Of course, this was just one of many en masse data-collection programs exposed in Edward Snowden’s smuggled haul. But the Squeaky Dolphin PowerPoint deck reveals something more specific. It outlines an expansionist program to bring big data together with the more traditional approaches of the social and humanistic sciences: the worlds of small data. GCHQ calls it the Human Science Operations Cell, and it is all about supplementing data analysis with broader sociocultural tools from anthropology, sociology, political science, biology, history, psychology, and economics.

The good news: the number of entries and data sets is growing. The bad: only 11% of the datasets surveyed are deemed open by the index.
