Title: Maximizing Linked Data's Network Effect
Abstract: 18M+ open datasets exist today, and growth is accelerating. But these data sets
live in data portals without common taxonomies or architectures, and must first be cleaned
and prepared by data users. Human and computers normalize, extract meaning, and identify
correlations, but this work is siloed: used for one project, then lost forever, only to be
repeated from scratch by the next person to touch the data.
Open data can help us rise to humanity’s toughest challenges, but only if we maximize its
network effect. To build the web of Linked Data, we have to start by connecting the people
who are working with data.
