"To cope with this continued urban growth we will need to invent new ways to manage cities and make them more effective. The convergence between digital technology and the world of energy, or Energy 3.0, will pave the way for a new ecosystem of services which will enable both a better quality of life and reduced energy consumption."
"The attached report presents the outcome of a study on Linked Open Government Data (LOGD.
The study was commissioned by the Interoperability Solutions for European Public Administrations (ISA) Programme of the European Commission to address the following research topics:
the value of LOGD for businesses, citizens, and public administrations;the cost structures behind the provision of LOGD;the revenue streams linked to the consumption of LOGD services; andenablers and barriers with regard to the value creation of LODG.
"The importance of source citations is not restricted to the credibility of Wikipedia itself and its derivative repositories; rather this is a universal requirement common to all enterprises whether they be semantics-oriented or not."
re3data.org is a global registry of research data repositories. The registry covers research data repositories from different academic disciplines. re3data.org presents repositories for the permanent storage and access of data sets to researchers, funding bodies, publishers and scholarly institutions. re3data.org aims to promote a culture of sharing, increased access and better visibility of research data.
In December 2012 re3data.org launched an alpha version. The registry will be continuously developed and improved together with relevant stakeholders.
re3data.org is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).
"re3data.org provides an overview of existing research data repositories. Since 2012, re3data.org has indexed research data repositories offering researchers, funding organizations, libraries and publishers an overview of the heterogeneous research data repository landscape."
"All definitions of Open Data include two basic features: The data must be publicly available for anyone to use, and it must be licensed in a way that allows for its reuse. Open Data also should be relatively easy to use, although here there are gradations of “openness.” And there’s general agreement that Open Data should be free of charge or cost just a minimal amount."
If you have come to data.gov.uk wondering what open data is all about, this short guide will provide you with the basic information you need to start playing with government data and will point you to tools and resources that can help you further in working with open data.
The reasons why you are interested in open data can be many, you may be a student wanting to use data for research, a local campaigner or a charity looking for evidence to support your decisions or a business looking into how open data can enhance your products or inform your processes. Although this guide is aimed at taking the very first steps on the path to open data, those with a better understanding of data will find the resources section valuable.
"Working with data can provide you with new insights into a subject, help you prove a point, provide your application or web service with what it needs to run, inform financial and social statistics or help you understand customer behaviour.
So, let’s make it bit more real and try to do something basic with some data, let’s visualise it and see if we get some new insights.
"These critiques do not suggest abandoning the move towards opening data, but contend that open data initiatives need to be much more mindful of what data are being made open, how data are made available, how they are being used, and how they are being funded."
"In order to encourage programmers to take advantage of the platform, IBM is working with venture capital firms — including New Enterprise Associates — to support and fund startups using the Watson API."
Data.gov.uk proudly announces: 'Data.gov.uk To Go' - a package containing the software for the well-known open data website Data.gov.uk. This allows other governments and open data communities to quickly install and customize a full open data website and develop it further in partnership with the worldwide community.
Although the central components CKAN, Drupal and data.gov.uk's custom components have each been open source for several years, few have used them in combination, due to the complexities of set-up. Data.gov.uk To Go provides an organized way to configure these components to quickly launch a fully-featured open data portal along the lines of data.gov.uk.

Preparing to succeed in a semantic search world requires you understand the real challenge.
Fàtima Galan's insight:
"Because search powers the way we access the web it also changes the way we interact with web technologies. .... When the only way to interface with a computer (and the semantic web) is voice, as in a conversation, suddenly being found in search changes from the game of statistical chance it was in the past to a firm recommendation made by an intelligent program. "
"the nonprofits, activists, foundations, political organizers, policy experts and civic hackers. Better services, more value, greater accountability: that’s where most of open data’s promise lies, and where the most important work remains to be done if we are to ensure that it is realized."
