The 2017 Canadian Open Data Summit was hosted by the city of Edmonton this year. These slides were part of the closing keynote. The talk was well received and it was great to work with public officials who are struggling with trying to administer, deliver programs, be innovative and consult with the public, but who were also receptive to the idea that we need to think at a higher moral and ethical level when deploying technologies. YOu can read the full program here.
The Calgary Homeless Foundation and The School of Public Policy at the University of Calgary held the First Annual Canadian Homelessness Data Sharing Initiative Calgary and the outcome of which is well described here.
The research for the studies discussed in these slides was funded by a European Research Council Advanced Investigator award ERC-2012-AdG-323636-SOFTCITY. I would like to express my gratitude to Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSi), Dublin City Council and the Open Data Community in Ireland for generously sharing their knowledge and time.
