Maximizing Linked Data's Network Effect

18M open datasets exist today, and growth is accelerating. But these data sets live in data portals without common taxonomies or architectures, and must first be cleaned and prepared by data users. Human and computers normalize, extract meaning, and identify correlations, but this work is siloed: used for one project, then lost forever, only to be repeated from scratch by the next person to touch the data.

Open data can help us rise to humanity’s toughest challenges, but only if we maximize its network effect. To build the web of Linked Data, we have to start by connecting the people who are working with data.

This session will answer the following questions (and more):
  • -How can we enhance open data that has already been published? 
  • -How are leading open data publishers combining the power of linked data and open data? 
  • -What is the role of public-private partnership today, and how should it evolve?
