Never before have we had so much data in our hands: 90% of all the available data is less than 2 years old. And all this open and big data show us patterns that have never before been visible. How can we use that data for better data driven policy and decision making?
And how do we deal with the challenges we encounter? Without putting people at risk, and without creating a new digital or data divide.
