Open access to publicly funded agriculturally-relevant data is critical to increasing global food security. It is being used by innovators and entrepreneurs around the world to accelerate development, whether it be tracking election transparency in Kenya or providing essential information to rural farmers in Uganda.

The G-8 conference will convene policy makers, thought leaders, food security stakeholders, and data experts to discuss the role of public, agriculturally-relevant data in increasing food security and to build a strategy to spur innovation by making agriculture data more accessible. As part of the conference, selected applicants will be invited to showcase innovative uses of open data for food security in either a Lightning Presentation (a 3-5 minute, image-rich presentation on the first day of the conference) or in the Exhibit Hall (an image-rich exhibit on display throughout the two-day conference).

The G-8 is inviting innovators to apply to present ideas that demonstrate how open data can be unleashed to increase food security at the G-8 International Conference on Open Data for Agriculture on April 29-30, 2013 in Washington, D.C.

 For more information on the conference and to submit your application, please visit the conference website or email G8AGOPENDATA@osec.usda.gov.

 Discuss the upcoming conference and the role for open data in promoting agriculture and food security on twitter!   #OpenAgData

The dangers in interpreting data

The researchers wanted to highlight the story of the potential savings to journalists. But in briefing journalists on the story, they paid particular care to how the data was released – as simply mapping spending would have showed the most densely populated areas of the country.

"There's an easy and sensational story of 'this doctor has a high proportion [of prescribing expensive drugs], so they are a very bad person'. That's not necessarily true but would be easy to pick up and run with," Bennett said.

"We were careful about the level on which we released data and the way in which we visualised it, which tried to encourage people to think about wider patterns and systems and try and discourage into digging into an individual's behaviour.

"PCTs and health organisations might want to do that but we didn't want to create a tabloid story around it, we wanted it to be a genuine discussion about 'how do we manage the NHS well?'

"We think it's a great institution and it's about giving it positive support and transparency rather than accusing people of things."

The planning around the controlled release worked, and the story was reported by the Financial Times, the Economist and the Daily Mail.
