-
Hauptschule
Seminar / Seminar
english language

An essential requirement for a modern and democratic society are institutions that act transparently and can be held accountable by the public. Governments and organisations all over the world have therefore started to open up their data in recent years. These measures have not only improved transparency, they have also unfolded an enormous economic potential. This seminar deals with the topic of open (government) data and its implications: It focuses on the social and technological circumstances and gives insight into data analytics and visualisation; last but not least, it also brings up questions of “data ethics”: Which rules and types of freedom does a future data-driven society need?
