ODI Summit: Data as Culture - Panel

‘Data as Culture’ is reflective of our time. As nations, organisations, and individuals from around the world embrace and release more and more open (addressable, structured, accountable, continuous) data, we can see that we are at the beginning of a new web.

Equally, our maker culture is re-emerging. The concept of the web ‘breaking through the glass’ and becoming part of our physical world is one that manifests itself in the ODI data as culture initiative.

In this the panel, discussion is focused upon the use of data as culture.
