Fp7consultation

  1. 1. Looking for the next GapMinder.com Brussels, 2nd February 2009 David Osimo - Tech4i2 ltd.
  2. 2. An inspiration: GapMinder.com • started by a Swedish professor and his son to better represent WB data on demographics • developed visual software application reaching great audiences • bought by Google for GoogleDocs • Success: better decisions and technological innovation 2
  3. 3. General trends • there is no such thing as web 3.0 • new metaphors (web squared?) • government as a platform: building on public data AND on citizens data • data.gov: repositories of linked data > RDFa... http://assets.en.oreilly.com/1/event/28/web2009_websquared-whitepaper.pdf 3
  4. 4. Anybody, not everybody • reaching out to and augmenting the knowledge of citizens and civil servants (tools) • posing questions you didnt ask (e.g. visual analytics). Crossover between design and IT. Research that lowers costs and increases usability www.ii.uib.no/vis/team/kehrer/ 4
  5. 5. International collaboration
  6. 6. http://www.art-sciencefactory.com/complexity-map_feb09.html 6
  7. 7. A vision Government and civil society are not a zero sum game Permantently changing, mutually necessary Bidirectional flows of services and data government users
  8. 8. Reducing the trade-offs of public decision-making 5"$*)*,6&' 0$,"4"71' !"#$%&' !"#$%&'$ (&)*'+,+-*$ ,+.$/&01-2$ 3&.*001+($ /."0$1,$2 ()*+,"-)+.$' 3)4$0' /8-$*94' ;714:%9)+71' 49:0&' -*7,$44$4'
  9. 9. "The  new  availability  of  huge  amounts  of  data,   along  with  the  statistical  tools  to  crunch  these   numbers,  offers  a  whole  new  way  of  understanding   the  world.  Correlation  supersedes  causation,   and  science  can  advance  even  without  coherent   models,  uni:ied  theories,  or  really  any  mechanistic   explanation  at  all". Chris  Anderson  (2007)
  10. 10. Stakeholders • Government: the smart users ICT govmod (e.g. NVAC group, data.gov people) • Research: e.g. Beth Novek at White House, Harvard Kennedy School of government, dowire.org • Companies: e.g. Cognitive Edge in Singapore • Civil society: e.g. MySociety.org in UK and SunlightFoundation in US • Existing networks: W3C eGov group, govloop, public blogosphere, #gov20, #eups20 10
  11. 11. International cooperation 2.0 11
  12. 12. In summary • reach out beyond eGov scientific community • involve the gov users (e.g. Illuminating the path) and the civil society • combine structured and unstructured collaboration, theory and practice-based, incremental and disruptive innovation 12
