“Corporate Data Sharing for Public Good” Panel
28 May, 2015 - 29 May, 2015
(Ottowa, Canada) A panel discussion co-organized by The GovLab (NYU) and IDRC being hosted at the International Open Data Conference 2015 will take up the topic of the “next generation” of open data, which includes private sector or non-profit organizations’ data. What sort of incentives lead businesses and nonprofits to decide to share their data assets? How can potential users of the data help allay concerns about privacy and competitive risks, and how should such users be chosen? What sorts of legal and technical frameworks — be they APIs, data pools, or research partnerships — are best suited to maximizing the public value of private data? During this session, we will aim to take stock of current practices of data collaboration between private and public actors, explore the many “shades” of open data innovations, and how to ensure they are able to fulfill their potential to advance the public good in a responsible manner.
