Catalyzing Science with Open Data — What is Open Data? | The Capital Chemist

Catalyzing Science with Open Data — What is Open Data? | The Capital Chemist | Open Knowledge | Scoop.it

A new data age is sweeping the nation. In February 2015, the White House hired the first-ever U.S. Chief Data Scientist, D.J. Patil, announcing that “the data age has arrived.” This accelerates Federal agency efforts to unleash the power of government data by making it available to everyone, as a strategic national asset for entrepreneurship and economic development, belonging to all American citizens because taxpayers paid to create these data. Similar initiatives are underway at international, state, and local government scales.

Open data: Strategies for impact

Open data: Strategies for impact | Open Knowledge | Scoop.it
When someone used to talk about “data for good”, chances are they were wondering whether the open data stream they relied on was still going to be available in the future. Similarly, “good with data” meant that experienced data scientists were being sought for a deeply technical project. Both interpretations reflect a state of being rather than of doing: data being around for good; people being good with data.

Important though these considerations are, they miss what should be an obvious and more profound alternative.

​New discussion paper: How Open Data can drive sustainable development

​New discussion paper: How Open Data can drive sustainable development | Open Knowledge | Scoop.it
Open Data — data that is freely available online for anyone to use and republish for any purpose — is becoming increasingly important in today’s development agenda driven by the Data Revolution, which has been recognized worldwide as the key engine for achieving the post-2015 UN Sustainable Development Goals. Data is probably one of the most valuable and least-utilized assets of modern governments. In that context, Open Data is being widely recognized as a resource with high economic and social value and as an effective approach for smarter data management.  The primary purpose of Open Data initiatives worldwide is to help governments, businesses and civil society organizations utilize the already available digital data more effectively to drive sustainable development. Many Open Data initiatives involve taking data that is already publicly available and putting it into more usable formats, making it a powerful resource for private sector development, jobs creation, economic growth, and more effective governance and citizen engagement.  In recent years, several studies — including those led by the World Bank — have shown a growing number of Open Data applications around the world, from water management social enterprises in India to agro-businesses in Ghana. The Open Data Impact Map, developed as part of the OD4D (Open Data for Development) network, has more than 1,000 examples of such use cases from over 75 countries, and the list is growing.

Datawijs, bridge between young people and open data | Open Knowledge Belgium | Open Knowledge | Scoop.it
Open data is gaining more importance these days. Yet, a lot of young people don’t know what open data is, or how they can benefit from it. That’s where Datawijs comes in. It’s an interactive video series, that introduces teenagers and young adults to the concept of open data. The Belgian platform works with Klynt, which allows the young people to view the videos in the order they want to. Thanks to the non-linear structure, users can learn on their own pace, about what interests them at whatever time they have.
