Abstract     (1M)

Implementing 'Big Open Data' in government through Open Collaboration - case examples and possibilities     (1M1)

This is the second of two sessions jointly organized by the US federal initiative and Ontolog; with the support from NYC-open-data, SMWcon-Spring2012, and OOR.     (1M2)

The two sessions on 'Big Open Data' follows quite naturally from a few very exciting recent events, notably:     (1M3)

  • (a) the recent US federal government's thrust toward developing and leveraging 'Big Data'     (1M4)
  • (b) the 3-month long Ontology Summit 2012 series of events that just finished a few weeks ago that was focused around the theme 'Ontology for Big Systems' and     (1M5)
  • (c) New York City's award of their 'Big Apps 3.0' grand prize to NYCfacets (developed by a member of this community) and the City's 'open data' initiative that followed.     (1M6)

During today's session, we will look more closely on the technology and the implementation details that will make 'Big Open Data' work in government open data initiatives, and discuss how open collaborative community efforts can help.     (1M7)
