Presenting at API Days in Sydney on 11 February 2015, Steven De Costa delivered a session on the Economics of Open Data.
With economic benefits forecast in the trillions of dollars, open data is on a fast track to a future that will bring smaller, smarter governments that empower citizens and cities.
In this session you’ll learn about a vision for the future that is taking shape right now. Public data is being liberated, made open to all and is living free in the cloud. Your next start-up, research grant or civic improvement program may be the direct result of open data initiatives that are exploding with activity all over the globe.
Questions we’ll explore:
– How will future trends in machine interfaces for humans, society and governments benefit from today’s explosion of open data?
– Where are the savvy putting their bets and who is already winning big with open data?
