Corporate Data Sharing for the Public Good: Shades of Open / Partage de données d’entreprise pour le bien public : Nuances d'ouvertures

Panel co-organized by The GovLab (NYU) and Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC)

The 2.5 quintillion bytes of data now being created on a daily basis — equivalent to a "new Google every four days" — represent an untapped  potential for society. If used responsibly, the increased datafication of society may hold the key to helping address some of our most crucial social, economic, and political challenges. Yet much of the richest, most valuable data for helping tackle public problems lies in private hands. It is crucial to start focusing on how private companies and nonprofit organizations can create data collaboratives and open and share their data — including Web clicks, sensor data, online purchases, and research results —  in a variety of ways with those those who are trying to tackle our most pressing public challenges.

While this next generation of "open data" is slowly emerging, key questions and persistent obstacles need to be considered. What sort of incentives lead businesses and nonprofits to decide to share their data assets? How can potential users of the data help allay concerns about privacy and competitive risks, and how should such users be chosen? What sorts of legal and technical frameworks — be they APIs, data pools, or research partnerships — are best suited to maximizing the public value of private data?

During this session, we will aim to take stock of current practices of data collaboration between private and public actors, explore the many "shades" of open data innovations, and how to ensure they are able to fulfill their potential to advance the public good in a responsible manner.

Groupe d’experts organisé conjointement par The GovLab (NYU) et le Centre de recherches pour le développement international (CRDI) du Canada

Les 2,5 quintillions d’octets de données qui sont créés tous les jours, ce qui équivaut à un « nouveau Google tous les quatre jours », représentent un potentiel inexploité pour la société. Si on l’utilisait de façon responsable, l’accroissement de la mise en données de la société pourrait représenter l’élément clé pour aider à régler certains des problèmes sociaux, économiques et politiques les plus sérieux. Par contre, une grande partie des données les plus riches et les plus importantes qui permettraient d’aborder les problèmes dans le secteur public se trouvent dans le secteur privé. Il est essentiel de commencer à chercher divers moyens par lesquels les compagnies privées et les organisations sans but lucratif pourraient créer des collaborations de données en vue de rendre disponibles et d’échanger leurs données, ce qui comprend le nombre de clics en ligne, les données de détecteurs, les achats en ligne et les résultats de recherche, avec les organisations qui tentent de régler les problèmes les plus urgents du secteur public.

Même si cette nouvelle génération de « données ouvertes » émerge lentement, il faut considérer les questions clés et les obstacles qui persistent. Quels types de mesures incitatives mènent les compagnies et les organisations sans but lucratif à échanger leurs données? Comment les utilisateurs potentiels des données peuvent‑ils aider à atténuer les préoccupations au regard de la protection des renseignements personnels et des risques de concurrence, et comment les utilisateurs des données devraient‑ils être sélectionnés? Quels cadres juridiques et techniques, qu’il s’agisse d’API, de bassins de données ou de partenariats de recherche, conviennent mieux afin d’augmenter au maximum pour le secteur public la valeur des données du secteur privé?

 Au cours de cette séance, nous examinerons les pratiques actuelles d’échange de données entre les secteurs public et privé, nous étudierons les nombreuses « nuances » des innovations liées aux données ouvertes, et nous considérerons des moyens pour exploiter au maximum le potentiel des données afin de faire progresser le bien public de façon responsable.

La Francophonie: nouvelle frontière des données ouvertes / La Francophonie: The New Frontier of Open Data

Au-delà d’une communauté de langue, la Francophonie qui rassemble 300 millions de personnes, est un espace de coopération, d'échanges, de rencontres. Pour se comprendre, pour échanger, pour coopérer, pour travailler avec les sociétés civiles, pour ouvrir de larges zones de confiance et de transparence, il faut un vocabulaire partagé, mais aussi des référentiels communs, des formats comparables…

L'open data permet de mettre à disposition des citoyens, des entreprises, mais aussi des administrations elles-mêmes de nouveaux savoirs et de nouvelles ressources, utiles à la démocratie, à l’économie, et à l’innovation.Cette session rassemblera représentants de la Francophonie - administrations, organisations de la société civile, innovateurs, start-ups - afin de partager leurs expériences en matière de données ouvertes et d’identifier de nouvelles aires de coopérations au sein de ces écosystèmes. La France partagera sa vision des données ouvertes sociales, déployée dans le portail data.gouv.fr, qui a entre autres inspiré le Maroc. Le Canada offrira un aperçu du processus d’implémentation des données ouvertes dans un contexte bilingue, et le développement des outils et des ressources reconnu partout au monde. Le lancement en juin 2014 du portail data.gov.bf et du projet « Nos Ecoles, Nos Données » par le Burkina Faso inspirera les pays débutant tout juste leurs politiques d’ouverture des données. La startup française OpenDataSoft expliquera comment outiller les projets basés sur les données ouvertes en prenant en compte les contextes locaux. L’association Open Knowledge France diffusera ses techniques pédagogiques d’exploration des données, telles que mises en œuvre dans ses ateliers “Ecole des données”.

---

Beyond a community of language, the Francophonie, which is made up of 300 million French-speakers and “francophiles”, is a space of shared culture, exchanges, common references, mutual understanding, and cooperation. Open data itself could be one of these shared tools, giving citizens, organizations, businesses, and government agencies themselves access to resources that can benefit democracies, economies, and innovation. This session will bring together country representatives, government members, civil society organizations, innovators, and startups of the Francophonie to share experience and best practices in open data, and to identify potential areas of collaboration within their ecosystems. This session will include presentations and interactive kiosks. France will share its vision of social open data embedded in the data.gouv.fr portal, which has inspired Morocco among others. Canada will provide insights on the implementation of open data commitments in a bilingual environment, building tools and resources that have been recognized worldwide. The launch in June 2014 of data.gov.bf and of the « Nos Ecoles, Nos Données » project by Burkina Faso may inspire countries starting implementing open data policies. France-based startup OpenDataSoft will explain how to better equip open data projects to adapt to local contexts. The civil society organization Open Knowledge France will share its open data education methods, refined in its “Ecole des données” workshops.
