Government Open Data - how the convergence of open government, mass collaboration platforms, and new startups are generating new innovative uses of data and improving all of our lives.

04 July 2018

Open Data is a rapidly growing field where governments are able to improve their own transparency and performance, connect better with their citizens, and fuel innovation. Numerous studies have outlined the billions of dollars of value that can be created by opening up more data. However, there are many challenges and risks associated with open data. Government agencies need to be smart in how they understand and manage these risks.

This presentation will touch on what Open Data is, why it is so exciting, and where it is heading in the future. It will also look at how to tackle some of the major risks that organisations face when embracing open data.

Julian Singh combines a passion for new technology evangelism with his hard experience in delivering complex government projects. He is ardent about Government Open Data and how it can help governments better serve their citizens. Julian is an author on Government Open Data and has 15 years' experience with systems development, consulting and executive relationship management across the globe; this includes nine years with a 'big 4' firm and six years with govtech startups in Australia, London and NYC.

This talk is presented as part of the Wednesday Seminar Series.
