New information can fuel new technologies, speed up innovation
“Open data provides huge opportunities for the U.S.” The White House and several agencies of the U.S. government are providing data–lots of data–that they believe can stimulate innovation. What’s being released ranges from census data about entrepreneurs in various cities, to healthcare costs in states and counties, and all kinds of other data. Armed with this information, it’s believed that new technologies, services and industries could be possible.
