Open Knowledge London Meetup

location Newspeak House | 7 PM-9 PM Wednesday 13 April 2016 (BST)

How can we create an open information age?

Come find out about openness in every area of our digital world - from genes to geodata, sonnets to statistics.

At this event we will have short talks from:

  • Rufus Pollock, Founder of Open Knowledge International - giving a short introduction and welcome
  • Paul Maltby Director of Data in the Cabinet Office on recent developments in open data in government
  • Francis Irving of ScraperWiki on "Sharing humanitarian data at the United Nations"
  • Daniele Orner, Digital Behaviour expert on "9 objects - a project taking you on a journey to collect the unique digital artefacts and memories that define who you are"
  • Jo Barratt of Open Knowledge on Frictionless Data
  • Ben Huss-Smickler of SOHUS on capturing data with drones.

We welcome talks and discussion across the full spectrum of open knowledge including open data, open hardware, open education, open science, open geodata, open infrastructure and open government.
