IBM_InfoSphere (IBM_InfoSphere) Protocol for Implementing Open Access Data Status of this Memo This memo provides information for the Internet community interested in distributing data or databases under an “open access” structure. There are several definitions of “open” and “open access” on the Internet, including the Open Knowledge Definition and the Budapest Declaration on Open Access; the protocol laid out herein is intended to conform to the Open Knowledge Definition and extend the ideas of the Budapest Declaration to data and databases. This memo does not specify an Internet standard of any kind, but does specify the requirements for gaining and using the Science Commons Open Access Data Mark and metadata, by using legal tools and norms that conform to the protocol specified. The terms MUST, MUST NOT, and SHOULD are used herein as defined in RFC 2119 (“Key words for use in RFCs to Indicate Requirement Levels”). 1. The motivation behind this memorandum is interoperability of scientific data. 1.2. 2. 3. 4. 5. 5.1 Category errors 5.2 False expectations 6.

Open-data Cities Conference2012 I wrote this column for The Argus newspaper after the conference: More than 150 people attended the Open-data Cities Conference at Brighton Dome Corn Exchange. The conference, I hope, helped put Brighton and Hove at the forefront of an historic shift – fuelled by emerging internet technologies – that will transform the lives of millions of citizens in a global network of “networked” cities. So what is an open-data city? In simple terms, it is a city where democratically-accountable and publicly-funded organisations take the lead in the widespread release of data – with no licensing strings attached – that can be interpreted or manipulated by computers. As a result, such data can then be used to create innovative applications and services for the public good. To emphasise: open data is not about personal data relating to identifiable individuals. When I gave up my job to organise the conference, I was determined that it should not only generate discussion, but also inspire action.

Practice and Learn - Google Code Jam On this page you can see results and code from past rounds of Google Code Jam, and you can try the problems for yourself. If you're new to Code Jam, try following the Quick-Start Guide. Where should I start? If you're new to programming contests, we highly recommend starting with the least difficult problems and moving up from there as you get more confident. Beware: the round that has the easiest problem A may have a very difficult problem B! Here are some choice problems for new competitors: Africa 2010, Qualification Round: Store Credit, Reverse Words. Remember, if you get stuck you can look at someone else's solution (click a "solutions" link below) or join our mailing list and ask for help. Finding Solutions You can click a "solutions" link below, but those aren't really indexed in a helpful way.

Return of the Borg: How Twitter Rebuilt Google's Secret Weapon | Wired Enterprise Illustration: Ross Patton John Wilkes says that joining Google was like swallowing the red pill in The Matrix. Four years ago, Wilkes knew Google only from the outside. He was among the millions whose daily lives so deeply depend on things like Google Search and Gmail and Google Maps. But then he joined the engineering team at the very heart of Google’s online empire, the team of big thinkers who design the fundamental hardware and software systems that drive each and every one of the company’s web services. These systems span a worldwide network of data centers, responding to billions of online requests with each passing second, and when Wilkes first saw them in action, he felt like Neo as he downs the red pill, leaves the virtual reality of the Matrix, and suddenly lays eyes on the vast network of machinery that actually runs the thing. “I’m an old guy. ‘I prefer to call it the system that will not be named.’ — John Wilkes The Borg moniker is only appropriate. — Ben Hindman

Impact » Food Security Open Data Challenge Last week, President Obama announced the G-8’s commitment to the “New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition”, the next phase of the G-8’s shared commitment to achieving global food security and nutrition goals. One of the elements of this New Alliance is a focus on science, technology, and innovation including the importance of open and available food security data. The group also committed to convene an international conference on food security and Open Data for G-8 members and stakeholders to determine how to increase openness and access to data. Seizing on the commitment of the G-8, USAID convened six leading innovators to showcase mapping, videos, and other tools that use data for more effective development. Thin Air Nitrogen Solutions, fertilizer fixes nitrogen from the air, sidestepping the need for energy-intensive production and transportation infrastructure to get fertilizers to farmers’ fields. USAID’s Food Security Open Data Challenge includes three core events.
