Actions and Detail Panel
Open Data: Science, Health, Community. Kathleen A. Zar Symposium
Fri, April 28, 2017, 8:30 AM – 4:00 PM CDT
Open data is data that can be freely used, re-used and redistributed. Some examples of open data resources include the Human Genome Project, the United Nations UNdata, and the City of Chicago data portal. Open data can spur business innovation, help patients and families make better decisions about their health, or accelerate the pace of scientific discovery. This symposium will provide participants with an understanding of what open data is, how it gets created and shared, and examples of how open data might contribute to progress in our communities.
