AI3SD Video: Giving your Open Data the best chance to realise its potential
Chris is not a researcher, but he’s worked with a lot of them over 23 years at the University of Southampton. He’s seen a lot of hard work on open data fail to achieve the potential it could have. A common issue is that rather than face the reality of what’s going wrong, it’s easier to invest more in the aspects of your dataset and data service that are good than to identify and fix aspects that are bad. Such “hygiene factors” don’t have to be perfect but they must all be good enough. Failure in any one may lead to failure of your data to achieve its potential, no matter how well you do on other factors. Chris will give some examples of the most common open data hygiene factors, and some tips from the public sector open data community on how to address them pragmatically.

Abstract

Chris is not a researcher, but he’s worked with a lot of them over 23 years at the University of Southampton. He’s seen a lot of hard work on open data fail to achieve the potential it could have. A common issue is that rather than face the reality of what’s going wrong, it’s easier to invest more in the aspects of your dataset and data service that are good than to identify and fix aspects that are bad. Such “hygiene factors” don’t have to be perfect but they must all be good enough. Failure in any one may lead to failure of your data to achieve its potential, no matter how well you do on other factors. Chris will give some examples of the most common open data hygiene factors, and some tips from the public sector open data community on how to address them pragmatically.
