Talkscience@BL: Open Data: What's the Use?
Tue 19 Mar 2013, 18.20-20.30
Staff Restaurant, British Library
The UK Government, research councils, businesses and private individuals are all releasing their data into the public domain. What does this Open Data revolution mean for us all? From enabling innovation to improving science and society, how can separate the hype from the real potential? What are the key drivers and enablers of open data? What barriers must we overcome in order to make the most of it?
Professor Nigel Shadbolt, University of Southampton and co-founder of the Open Data Institute, will lead a lively discussion exploring the potential of open data in this 20th event in our TalkScience series.
