NHK News report 8/10 http://www3.nhk.or.jp/news/html/20130810/t10013690201000.html

 

Combining a variety of data, such as from government and busines, can help to solve social problems. To  lead ths trend, an innovative contest, LOD Challenge Japan 2013 has begun, and a workshop event was held August 10th in Shibuya, Tokyo to promote understanding.

 

On the internet, efforts are spreading to publish government and business data as "open data", that is in a way that it can free to use and processed via a compter. LOD Challenge Japan 2013 will start accepting entries in October of this year, for new application ideas, and ways of using data. The winners will be announced in March of next year.

 

On August 10 an Ideathon was held in Shibuya, attended by about 80 people, including representatives of government, academia and industry, including programmers. Unique ideas were proposed, such as to show how demographics data change between day and night, and how to store food and create shelter in the event of a disaster. Another idea analyzed water and sea temperatures as observed on Earth from space. 

 

Teams split up into several groups in order to brainstorm their ideas among the wide variety of people with varied experience.

 

Future Ideathons will be held in Nagoya and Hokkaido.

Automatic correlation calculation App - Murakami Fumihiro

Automatic correlation calculation App - Murakami Fumihiro | LOD Challenge Japan | Scoop.it
David Gifford's insight:

Murakami Fumihiro proposed, in response to the idea  "I want to create an app that recommends the data with similar trends from the correlation between the data".  Ikki Ohmukai Mr was prototyping using a Google spreadsheet at the Ideathon. As a result, interesting findings, such as it can be seen that an inverse correlation of "possible marriage rate" and "prefectural income" is obtained. we were excited by such ideas at the Ideathon. This earned the most number of "Likes" from the audience participants at the ideathon. This Idea is likely to become more concrete and carried on infuture the events oin the future.

Solving commuting problems by visualization of commuting information - Asano Yu

Solving commuting problems by visualization of commuting information - Asano Yu | LOD Challenge Japan | Scoop.it
David Gifford's insight:

In order to solve the problem of every day commuting congestion, the idea is to use LOD of statistical data, public data, and fixed-point observation data. For those who want to find the time zone and commuting routes that are not crowded, people who want to look for work and residence in areas where it is not crowded, people who want to find the time zone and routes that are not crowded for example when you go out with the stroller by train. It will continue to resolve the congestion problem, even to the level of which exit of the station and home, along the entire mobile route.

David Gifford's insight:

Through the open information about regional sports and across the country, you will get help in child-rearing by wide knowledge of the sports environment that has become a regional strength. By providing easy to analyze the data of various sports, a choice can be made for a place to raise children of their own area suitable for promoting children's physical fitness of children, and even win the Olympics. At the same time raise awareness of the Olympics by using familiar sports data, and make widely known a distinctive regional competition as a sport that had only a minor role so far.

David Gifford's insight:

Horo Tateshita

Making an indication of local resources that could be regional strengths by combining ground data statistics obtained by Earth observation from space using satelites. For example, to optimize use of the Agriculture and Forestry Census data published by the Ministry of Agriculture in the field together with JAXA Earth observation data. Regional strengths for tourism data could be represented. Plus a foundation for a space data art spot for artists who appreciate the beauty of the Earth.

Mechanism of generation and distribution of audio and Braille bibliographic information that is created on a personal basis- Suzuki Takayuki and Yusuke Komiyama

Mechanism of generation and distribution of audio and Braille bibliographic information that is created on a personal basis- Suzuki Takayuki and Yusuke Komiyama | LOD Challenge Japan | Scoop.it
David Gifford's insight:

Idea was born based on the activities of Sakai Mika. For people who are blind, a Braille and audio bibliography bibliography could be available. But in such situations distribution is difficult as copyright becomes an obstacle.
To overcome this, to provide to the public as open data bibliographic information of these, we need a mechanism available for those who need to locate easily. An online Braille library version that can be provided as free Bibliographic sound information. A braille bibliography generated by individual volunteers is required.

See Regional health environment from the statistical data - Visualization to connect with preventive medicine- Takao Suzuki | LOD Challenge Japan | Scoop.it
日常的に介護を必要としないで、自立した生活ができる生存期間のことを「健康寿命」と言います。本アイデアでは「健康寿命が長い」地域について、様々な統計データを用い他地域との比較を行うことにより、その地域において特徴的なトピックを抽出し、そこから健康寿命に影響を与えていると考えられる要素を推察し、予防医療に役立てることを目指します。 なお、上記の地域間の比較を行うためののパラメータとして、地域別の食生活の傾向、ストレス要因、リラックス要因、基礎的体力、環境要因(気候、水質、地形等)等を設定し、それらを各種統計データから横断的に探索し、利用するものとします。...
David Gifford's insight:

Ideas that by utilizing unhealthy data statistics provided and visualized by extracting parameters and health-science, we want to find a method of preventive medicine suitable for the region. As residents need to be able to choose the method of appropriate preventive health care to suit the living environment and lifestyle differ from one location to another, we can realize community medical care and preventive medicine that is independent in accordance with the aging and depopulation of the region. We would like to lengthen healthy life in the region.

David Gifford's insight:

The estimate has a basis on census data stockpiles of food, etc. that are required to accept the refugees return home in the event of a disaster, and will continue to request informatin from respective businesses and municipalities. Easy-to-understand system to visualize on the map the movement of people each day according to commute is convenient governments includng the case of the United States would be helpful. If you can use data of the NFC railway company and movement data is used of the base station of mobile phone operators, you can acheive visualization of residence of people's residences and movement with higher accuracy.

New additional knowledge can create a new type Dictionary 2.0 created as the computer automatically turns texts written in natural language into Linked Open Data. For example, it can offer advice on choosing words when writing sentences about new information. Also, ou could pick out the appropriate ifnormation to determine the psycological state of human conversation.
