Driving Innovation with Open Data and Interoperability

This video was recorded at 11th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC), Boston 2012., a flagship open government project from the US government, opens and shares data to improve government efficiency and drive innovation. Sharing such data allows us to make rich comparisons that could never be made before and helps us to better understand the data and support decision making. The adoption of open linked data, vocabularies and ontologies, the work of the W3C, and semantic technologies is helping to drive and US data forward. This session will help us to better understand the changing global landscape of data sharing and the role the semantic web is playing in it. This session highlights specific data sharing examples of solving mission problems from NASA, the White House, and many other governments agencies and citizen innovators.
