Argentina Hosts Open Data Summit

BUENOS AIRES – The 5th International Open Data Conference began on Thursday in Buenos Aires with 2,000 participants from more than 85 countries.

“Today public information is a fundamental value of democracy,” Argentina’s deputy Cabinet chief, Andres Ibarra, said at the start of the event, pointing out that his government is affiliated with the Open Government Partnership (OGP).

Topics to be discussed by panels during the two-day gathering include access to information, data and justice, data-driven journalism, international commitments to openness and gender equality.

The first round-table featured Amir Banifatemi, director of Innovation and Growth at the XPRIZE Foundation; the head of the Statistical Services Branch in the UN Statistics Division, Francesca Perucci; and OGP Executive Director Sanjay Pradhan.

They spoke about the challenges and opportunities of open data and agreed that open data could be useful in solving real-world problems.

Banifatemi said that one of the most difficult challenges is to determine which data may be utilized and by is authorized to use it.

Previous editions of the conference were held in the United States, Canada and Spain.
