UK Data Landscape
What is a 'data landscape' and what does it look like? Well, that's just two of many questions that we hope to explore and answer via this project. As data becomes increasingly important and foundational for so many services, businesses, etc, it's important to understand all of the subtle and obvious interactions that take place, and who is involved. Just like a natural ecosystem, even small changes can have a big impact. Having a visual aid that helps people understand the influence of their potential decision-making or strategy development can make the whole system more robust and sustainable. In this Open Data Institute led project, we will be applying our rapid open innovation methods to gather input about who/what should be included in the landscape combined with The Data City machine-learning platform to develop an initial snapshot of this year.
