Governments around the world are embracing technologies intended to make cities, communities, and governments “smarter” and provide data that can improve life. Yet the wealth of data that governments and communities gather is often left in databases or is released simply as files accessible via an online portal. Such portal-based access points are easy to report as successful data sharing, and yet they raise questions about whether they adequately serve the goals of government efficiency, public oversight, and transparency in determining what data goes online and how to use it. Drawing from work at the Midwest Big Data Hub, this presentation will discuss how to manage the dilemmas posed by focusing on smart technology and big-data-driven solutions.
