Open call for proposals: exploring the emerging impacts of open data in the south

Open call for proposals: exploring the emerging impacts of open data in the south | Datavision | Scoop.it
In recent years, a diverse coalition of actors has pushed the creation and diffusion of open data programmes around the world. Governments, international organizations, businesses, academics, media, civil society organizations, and web developers have embraced and sponsored open data programs, creating large expectations for open data as a suitable remedy for challenges of good governance, economic growth, social inclusion, innovation, and participation.

Though in many cases this potential may be realised, there is a need for a critical perspective on whether the outcomes indeed occur and under what circumstances.

The Web Foundation and International Development Research Centre are inviting research proposals that address current gaps in the evidence base underlying the implementation of open data initiatives, and to inform policy and practice in a range of different settings. Research partners will be invited to form part of an international research network over the course of 2013.

How can open data help rebuild trust in business? | Open Economics | Datavision | Scoop.it

The Open Economics Working Group of the Open Knowledge Foundation.

 

"A few months ago, the Finance Innovation Lab launched AuditFutures – a new systemic work around rebuilding trust in business. The first innovation workshop on 4 July was a tremendous success and we have developed a strategy to move the work forward. Not surprisingly, open data came up in the discussions in two of the eight innovation domains. We feel that the knowledge and perspectives of the OKFN will bring value to the discussion."

Big Data Is Not the New Oil | Datavision | Scoop.it
Every 14 minutes, somewhere in the world, an ad exec strides on stage with the same breathless declaration:

"Data is the new oil!"

It's exciting stuff for marketing types, and it's an easy equation: big data equals big oil, equals big profits. It must be a helpful metaphor to frame something that is not very well understood; I've heard it over and over and over again in the last two years...

City of Palo Alto - Open Data

City of Palo Alto - Open Data | Datavision | Scoop.it

Beginning this year, Palo Alto will begin to implement an open data initiative for our city. Initially we will look for some early data candidates to display on this page. We’ll make the data accessible in different formats so it is as useful as possible. With your help, we will identify additional sets of data and publish them as they become ready. From time to time, we’ll also issue a challenge: we’ll ask people to build solutions for certain data that will help the city with its goals.

We’re excited by the value of open data to our community. It’s a natural complement to our goal of becoming a leading digital city.

Update: The Palo Alto Open Data platform goes live on August 1, 2012. Come back to this page or http://data.cityofpaloalto.org.
