    1. Driving Innovation withOpen Data and Knowledge Sharing Jeanne Holm Evangelist, August 25, 2012
    2. Change is Happening… 2
    3. What Will You Do? 3
    4. PeoplePeople  Knowledge  Problems The Times They Are A’Changing 4
    5. Generations Share Differently• 1930-50’s era generation – Focus on society – Friendships are forged through adversity• 1960-70’s era generation – Focus on community – Friendships forged through identification with a cause• 1980-90’s era generation – Focus on the individual – Friendships forged through individual goal accomplishment• 2000’s era generation – Focus on common interests – Friendships are created or thrive virtually… 5
    6. Trust and Reciprocity• Trust can be built on • Personal experience • “I know you” • Shared experience • “We both worked on the same project” • Transfer of trust • “We know the same person who trusts us” • Shared values • “We agree to operate by the same rules” 6

    10. Finding NASA Experts 10
    11. Defining the Competitive Edge• Historically, innovation and breakthrough ideas and technologies occur at the edges and boundaries of networks• Thomas Kuhn’s The Structure of Scientific Revolutions describes such radical innovation as a paradigm shift – Astronomy: Ptolemy to Copernicus – Biology: Creation to Darwinian evolution – Politics: English monarchy to Magna Carta• Where will your innovation occur? 11

    24. Our Modes of Communication Keep Changing• YouTube is now second largest search engine in the world• 1.5 million pieces of content shared daily on Facebook• 250 million visitors each month to YouTube and Facebook• Mobile devices will be world’s primary connection tool to the Internet in 2020 24
    25. Open Government Initiative • Transparency promotes accountability • Participation allows people to contribute ideas • Collaboration encourages cooperation within government and with industry 25
    26. Creating a Data Ecosystem1. Gather data – from many places and give it freely to developers, scientists, and citizens2. Connect the community – in finding solutions to allow collaboration through social media, events, platforms3. Provide an infrastructure – built on standards4. Encourage technology developers – to create apps, maps, and visualizations of data that empower people’s choices “A Strategy for American5. Gather more data Innovation” published – and connect more people September 2009 26
    27.• Provides instant access to over 450,000 datasets in easy to use formats• Contributions from UN, World Bank, and 172 agencies• Encourage development of innovative applications• Drive innovation and knowledge use across the globe 27
    28. Easy to Find Data 28
    29. The Power of Visualizations 29
    30. Powered Through Advanced Technologies • Provides developers the tools and raw data formats to develop new capabilities • Partnership with W3C (eGov Interest Group) and with RPI for research in semantic web • Connected to other open data efforts across the world • Data hosted in the cloud • Open source platform • Builds on ontologies developed in specific areas 30
    31. Learn at• Resources for students and teachers• Examples of how data is being used to develop apps• Lesson plans and videos• Showcase your science fair project that uses government data! 31
    32. Open Data for the Economy• When the Department of Defense released satellite data…private industry created affordable GPS devices• Data from NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) helped build weather-related business• Opportunities for private sector are limitless 32
    33. Supporting Global Events Japanesetsunami, earthquake, and radiation monitoring Restore the Gulf: Deepwater Horizon Response 33
    34. Open Communities Community Developers ✓ Open Data ✓ Semantic Web ✓ Health ✓ Law ✓ Energy ✓ Education ✓ Ocean ✓ Safety ✓ Manufacturing ✓ Business ✓ Ethics ✓ Consumer Research and Development Human rights + many more… 34
    35. Energy Drives Innovation• connects innovators, indust ry, academia, and government at federal, state, an d local levels 35
    36. Challenges Spark Ideas• works with groups and challenges across the nation to innovate around federal data 36
    37. Data Drives Decisions• Apps transform data in understandable ways to help people make decisions 37
    38. Green Button• Anyone can download their home or business energy use data from their local utility• Then use apps to manage their energy use to save money and go green• More at 38
    39. Powered Through Advanced Technologies• Provides developers tools and raw data formats to develop new capabilities• Partnership with – W3C: eGov Interest Group + activities, standards, and recommendations – RPI for research in semantic web and open linked data• Connected to other open data efforts across the world• Data hosted in the cloud• Open source platform• Builds on ontologies developed in specific areas 39
    40. Capabilities• Present • Future – Dataset Management – OGPL • Workflow engine and • Open source platform metadata editor built on Drupal + • Extended Dublin Core – API key registry – Search • API key authorization • Keyword and filtering by • Templates and standards basic metadata facets • Application statistics • 6.7 billion triples – Enhanced search – Geo • Federated catalogs • Search, harvesting, and map across agencies, cities, visualizations via regions, and topics – – • Vocabulary and schema • Federated ontologies publishing engine for linked • URIs for all data data – Standards driven • URIs for all health data • ADMS-based metadata 40
    41. US Open Government Action Plan • On 20 September 2011, President Obama announced at the UN General Assembly… • Contribute as a platform – India and the U.S. creating open source platform – Will allow any country to create open data site • Foster communities on – Health, energy, and law plus new communities in education, research and development, and public safety 41
    42. Open Government Platform (OGPL) • Open source solution co-developed by Governments of India and US – National Informatics Centre and US • US will migrate to OGPL later in 2012 • Coordinating with other open data providers, platforms, and communities, like W3C, World Bank, CKAN, and open source developers world wide • Public commits and bug tracker on Github • Public mailing list for discussion • Join the community! – Source code on Github – 42
    43. The Path Ahead• Bring data up and out of government to the public ★• Make data accessible and linked ★★★★★• Create communities to understand and apply data• Connect and collaborate with small businesses, industry, and academia to drive innovation• Continue to develop OGPL with community development• Share with others to understand global issues We need to securely architect our systems for interoperability and openness from conception. —Digital Government 43
