    How can Europe take the lead in the business of data?

    There are many reasons that explain why data is becoming increasingly important in our lives.

    --- Posted by Khalil Rouhana , DG INFSO, Director "Digital Content and Cognitive Systems"

    There are many reasons that explain why data is becoming increasingly important in our lives.

    Firstly, a large number of devices - from scientific instruments like genomic sequencers or telescopes to mobile phones to very tiny sensors -  generate much more data than humans could by themselves.

    Secondly, advances in digital storage technologies mean it is now cost effective to store large quantities of data for further analysis.

    Finally, advances in information retrieval to data mining and machine learning have made it possible to extract very valuable information from enormous amounts of data so that we are now able to analyse phenomena that were too big for us to perceive.

    Size is not the only thing that has changed. In the last few years we have discovered that certain types of data  -particularly non-private data collected by public administrations- are worth more when shared than when locked up. And that datasets are worth even more when they are linked to one another so that properties of various objects of interest -companies, products, and geographic features- can be aggregated from independently developed datasets.

    EUROPA - Press Releases - Digital Agenda: Turning government data into gold

    The Commission has launched an Open Data Strategy for Europe, which is expected to deliver a €40 billion boost to the EU's economy each year. Europe’s public administrations are sitting on a goldmine of unrealised economic potential: the large volumes of information collected by numerous public authorities and services. Member States such as the United Kingdom and France are already demonstrating this value. The strategy to lift performance EU-wide is three-fold: firstly the Commission will lead by example, opening its vaults of information to the public for free through a new data portal. Secondly, a level playing field for open data across the EU will be established. Finally, these new measures are backed by the €100 million which will be granted in 2011-2013 to fund research into improved data-handling technologies.
