Data

Recent industry reports detail how data volumes are growing rapidly, with annual increases up to 40%. Data volumes of Facebook are by themselves estimated to be as big as the entire World Wide Web was in 2004.

Exploiting this data - extracting actionable meaning out of the mass of unorganised and often volatile material in many languages, analysing, using and re-using it- could transform the Web and the way we handle information once and for all. It could facilitate our lives through innovative ICT applications, lead to better support for decision-making and planning, give research in different domains a major boost, and improve interaction between online, social and enterprise usages. In this scenario, the ability to draw knowledge out of data would change the Internet in a way similar to the changes brought about by the ‘search’ and ‘social media’ revolutions in recent years.

The proposed workshop will explore the potential of data, some of the most promising economic and business aspects involved, and discuss how policy for data and our investment in R&D can better address the challenges of businesses and the public sector and further support innovative business development.

Interoperability: Achieving plug and play in healthcare

Leacoulet's picture
Submitted by Leacoulet on Mon, 2012-06-18 15:50

While ‘plug and play’ is a reality in many fields (e.g. USB or GSM), it is still a headache in healthcare. More interoperability is absolutely crucial to allow the eHealth market to flourish. The Digital Agenda has recognised this challenge through its key action 77, and COCIR developed an ‘Industry Guide to eHealth Interoperability in Six Steps’ to help local decision makers build interoperable systems. Other interesting initiatives like IHE strive to educate users on interoperability.

Facilitate health information sharing for the benefits of healthcare

Submitted by Leacoulet on Mon, 2012-06-18 15:35

The data protection Directive dating from 1995 is under revision. This is an opportunity for the EU to adopt data protection rules that preserve patients’ privacy while facilitating health information sharing to deliver better healthcare in a more cost efficient way. The next generation of legislation should recognise the benefits brought by innovative technologies in healthcare, be future-proof, workable and should respond to the following needs:
• Allow the health information sharing for primary usage i.e. diagnostic, treatment and follow-up purposes.

Before (Open) Data first organisational re-alignment?

Gianluigi Cuccureddu's picture
Submitted by Gianluigi Cuccureddu on Mon, 2012-06-18 13:31

Havard Business School professor Morten Hansen and colleague Bolko Von Oetinger say that most companies continue to squander their greatest assets – knowledge scattered and embedded within and outside organisations.

What's your opinion, pragmatically adapt to Big (Open) Data or align first as much as possible in relation to processes, culture and tech?

How to increase Trust about personal data

LE ROUX's picture
Submitted by LE ROUX on Thu, 2012-06-14 14:28

In may 2012, The World Economic Forum has published a report entitled "Rethinking Personal Data: Strengthening Trust" which is available at http://www3.weforum.org/docs/WEF_IT_RethinkingPersonalData_Report_2012.pdf
The report aims to foster dialogue around some of the key questions that need to be resolved to ensure long-term and sustainable value creation. Who owns personal data? How can privacy be protected? What is the role of context in setting permissions? How can organizations be held accountable? What is the role of regulators? It outlines concrete steps that stakeholders can take, focusing on three areas: upgrading protection and security, agreeing on rights and responsibilities for using data based on context, and driving accountability and enforcement.

De-identified Data can never become "Open Data"

Engberg's picture
Submitted by Engberg on Thu, 2012-06-14 10:01

This posting is relevant for Open Data" but is closely tied in to the question of Fundamental principles and the Single Market as such.

I am fully aware that some would not even have a second thought doing so - and that is close to the root cause of european deroute.

The Semantics of Interoperability

JochenHummel's picture
Submitted by JochenHummel on Wed, 2012-06-13 12:07

Was machen wir eigentlich? - The European Interoperability Framework (EIF) is supposed to support the delivery of eGovernment services to citizens and enterprises. The model consists of several interoperability layers stacked within a Political Context: Legal, Organisational, Semantical, and Technical. The semantic layer shall ensure that the precise meaning of exchanged information is understandable. (http://ec.europa.eu/idabc/servlets/Doc4ee4.pdf?id=18060).

Language technology – the missing piece in the puzzle

mmazura's picture
Submitted by mmazura on Wed, 2012-06-13 10:58

In Europe, language is a key last barrier to large-scale valorisation of content and big data. The problem is magnified by the number of languages (63+ all over Europe). Language Technology is the solution to the problem. LT is a key enabler for the future of the European digital economy and society. LT includes Translation Technology, a driver for global digital business and export, as well as European digital markets.

Opening data, the boost could be up to 140 billion euros per year.

nabeth.thierry's picture
Submitted by nabeth.thierry on Tue, 2012-06-12 17:25

In an interview Neelie Kroes indicated that by opening data, the boost could be up to 140 billion euros per year (including the indirect gains). (cf. "Neelie Kroes: Information is the new oil!"). This prediction is based on some economic studies by Graham Vickery who heads the Information Economy section of the OECD in Paris.

Maybe we could try starting to be more specific of the types of applications that will generate this value.

A single OpenData license for all EU is a great action to improve our Open Data sector

mgarrigap's picture
Submitted by mgarrigap on Sun, 2012-04-29 18:50

Having a single Open Data license for all European Union is a great action to improve our Open Data sector.

According to the Fundación CTIC (the Spanish Office of the W3C) today there are more than 50 Open Data Portals in the European Union (I suggest you to see this Open Data Portals map: http://datos.fundacionctic.org/sandbox/catalog/faceted/).

Many of them are very simple, but some are among the best Open Data portals in the world: http://data.gov.uk is a good example.

Let's create thousands of tech jobs for EU-citizens by opening up business register data

Kristijan Jakic's picture
Submitted by Kristijan Jakic on Tue, 2012-06-05 09:51

There are a lot of open data startups in Europe that are not able to grow much faster and can’t create much more jobs on EU level, because there is no fully automated access to governmental business register data available. Fully automated access to open company data would enable that European data service companies become first movers and global innovation leader in this sector. This is not possible if deciders on EU and national level don’t open data treasures.

Big Data and Big Privacy Debate

LE ROUX's picture
Submitted by LE ROUX on Tue, 2012-06-05 14:03

Advertisers want to adjust their marketing message to match the targeted user’s profile, as the collection of information about clients will enable them to profile clients very precisely. If Google users use the search engine, YouTube, blogs, Google Docs etc, it will be possible to determine their interests, views, opinions, career profile, and so on. Their social groups and the nature of those personal contacts, business contacts, interests etc, can be determined when they make use of discussion groups, e-mail, or calendars.

Big Data Research Challenges

Let me share the Barcelona Supercomputing Center view about Big Data Challenges, presented in a recent meeting. Unfortunately it is written in Spanish. I will translate it as soon I found a time slot for it. Anyway, I include the link and the headlines. I hope you find it useful.

Data is more important than ever, but the exponential growth of data (plus Variety and Velocity as Paul.Miller introduced in a previous post) has overwhelmed most company's ability to manage (and monetize it). Our vision to overcome this is advance research in four areas:

Best Practices in Open Data

espinr's picture
Submitted by espinr on Fri, 2012-05-11 14:25

For the time being, there are over 150 open data initiatives all around the world (see map at http://url.ctic.es/catalogs ). This number is growing constantly, and every new open data portal resembles the others. All the initiatives are similar, but with subtle differences which put (unconsciously) barriers to interoperability and PSI re-use.

icon Gift a Smile - Micro-Documentary - Jakarta, Indonesia - 2013 Feb

Being the fourth largest city in the world with over 10 million people, Jakarta - the capital city of Indonesia - has 10 percent of its population living under the poverty line.

Children are the first ones to suffer.

Poverty means little access to education and lack of education results to a non-existent future for these children
Since 2006 the Art of Living Foundation took up the Tunas Pelangi Bangsa Project. It provides basic necessities such as daily food, school uniform, shoes, books and pen to around 185 children.

----

Fred Louradour - Director, cameraman and editor - is a talented film maker with an exceptional eye for angle.

Driven by a strong attention to detail and keen eye for the best images, Fred believes we can use media as a poignant tool to build a stress free and violence free society, showcasing the best of what the world has to offer.

Traveling over 50 countries since 2006, Fred became a very versatile and experienced cinematographer.

Catching the emotion in the mist of chaos need patience. Translating it to film without loosing its content is an art.

icon What is DA2MNT?

God bless you in this day, renew your mind and discover God’s hidden realm of fascination and truth (DA2MNT). He is with you here. Be bold and believe because you are just like He is in the world. The Lord Jesus Christ has overcome the world. This current world that you see all around you is passing away…

It is vital for God’s people to shine in the world in these last days..on the web and everywhere, that we may cast out the darkness. The darkness will continue to increase in the world, but God’s people can thrive in the Mountain of God, which is far better than the land of Goshen in ancient Egypt. If you haven’t read about the Daniel:2 Mountain of God, or come to a revelatory understanding of its meaning, I want to implore you to rediscover yourself in this place.

"Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways" (Isaiah 2:3).
