Maximum Flow of Information and KnowledgeYouTube is now second largest search engine in the world1.5 million pieces of content shared daily on FacebookOn-line newspaper readers are up 30%250 million visitors each month to YouTube and FacebookMobile devices will be worlds primary connection tool to the Internet in 202021As big an issue outside your organization as within it

Open Government Initiative

Transparency promotes accountabilityParticipation allows people to contribute ideasCollaboration encourages cooperation within government and with industry2222Creating a Data EcosystemGather data from many places and give it freely to developers, scientists, and citizensConnect the communityin finding solutions to allow collaboration through social media, events, platformsProvide an infrastructure built on standardsEncourage technology developers to create apps, maps, and visualizations of data that empower peoples choicesGather more dataand connect more people23

A Strategy for American Innovation published September 2009US Open Government Action PlanOn 20 September 2011, President Obama announced at the UN General AssemblyContribute Data.gov as a platformIndia and the U.S. creating open source platformWill allow any country to create open data siteFoster communities on Data.govHealth, energy, and law plus new communities in education, research and development, and public safetyLaunch International Space Apps CompetitionNASA and other space agencies will gather scientists and citizensUse data for global challenges: weather impacts on global economy and depletion of ocean resourcesA collaboration website will be created to facilitate citizen participation 24

24Data.govProvides instant access to over 400,000 datasets in easy to use formatsContributions from UN, World Bank, and 172 agenciesEncourage development of innovative applicationsDrive innovation and knowledge use across the globe25

Publicizing Data to Innovators


Challenges and codea-thons (health2challenge.org)Many innovator meetups and conferencesAnnual health data-paloozasOver 139 applications50 new businessesThousands of lives improved each day

Creating Apps That Improve Lives: Asthmapolis37

Uses asthma patients aggregated GPS notations to create hot spots in communities where there are asthma issuesChanges individual behaviorFrom 65% daily incidence to 25% daily incidence of inhaler uses over a six month study37Creating Apps That Save Lives: iTriage and Hospital Compare38

Creating Apps That Change Lives: Eat Your Vegetables and Food Deserts39Eat Your Vegetables uses Health and Human Services community health data and shows obesity rates by countyFood Deserts shows areas with a lack of access to fresh foodCombined can inform cities and citizens how to change their behaviorGames like Hungry Hiker helps kids make better choicesApps for Healthy Kids sponsored by First Lady Michelle Obama

Use Case: EconomicHealthtapProvides free, reliable, and independent health information through the use of open data and by building the worlds largest medical expert network tailored for young mothers and their childrenWon 2010 Health 2.0 challengeSuccess invigorated expansion and new hiring at HealthTapReaches to Data.gov datasets (along with others)40
