Open data is fundamentally changing the amount of information available to people and organisations but brings concerns about data protection, privacy and cost.
Join us for this stimulating half day event kindly hosted by IDEALondon and jointly led by the Academic & Industry and Software/Open Source SIGs bringing together experts from industry and academia to discuss and debate the issues and to share their experience in these crucially important areas.
Academic groups, research labs and commercial businesses alike are trying to maximize the impact of their development, research or influence by releasing software and data under open licences. In doing so they face several challenges, such as how to best gain maximum impact, how to protect IP and to what level, and how to choose the appropriate licence.
The Academic & Industry SIG is championed by Marc Bailey, Nokia Technologies, Claus Bendtsen, AstraZeneca, Claudio Marinelli, Scannerfutures, Bozidar Radunovic, Microsoft Research and Ian Wassell, University of Cambridge.
