Unlocking Value from Open Data

Open data is extremely powerful. And while it may be free, it can power valuable new business models. But to reap the rewards of open data requires investment of time and care to transform it to intelligence. It sounds paradoxical: How can you create value from something that is free? Or stranger still: How can you create value while simultaneously giving something away? Yet open data – data or content that anyone is free to use, reuse, and redistribute – is now a viable route for both new and established businesses. ....

We need open models, not just open data

We need open models, not just open data | Open Data | Scoop.it
You can have all the crime data you want, all the real estate data you want, all the student performance data you want, all the medical data you want, but if you don’t know what models are being used to generate results, you don’t have much. You’re going to be showing black people homes in predominantly black neighborhoods not because you want to keep white neighborhoods pure, but because that’s where the model says they’re most likely to buy. You’re going to be stopping and searching more minority drivers without cause not because you’re prejudiced, but because the model says they’re more likely to be arrested for crimes. And if you stop more minority drivers, you almost certainly will arrest more minority drivers, so the model becomes self-fulfilling.
