data.world – Social Network for Data People

December 13, 2016

data.world – Social Network for Data People
https://data.world/

Discover and share cool data, connect with interesting people, and work together to solve problems faster. They are building the most meaningful, collaborative, and abundant data resource in the world. At least 18M open datasets exist today. Only 2.4M websites existed at Google’s launch in 1998. Open data holds great promise for society, and we think its impact should grow as quickly as its volume. We’ve built a platform where the world’s problem solvers can find and use a vast array of high-quality open data. Some datasets will always be sensitive, some should only be shared with trusted collaborators, and others just aren’t ready to publish yet. We’ve built an environment where users’ private datasets are safe and access is entirely under their control. Datasets are social objects, and open data platforms should reflect this. Social networking can accelerate and enhance data science by improving decision-making, knowledge transfer, problem-solving, and much more. We’ve built a community where conversation adds context to data and deep collaboration is the norm. It should be easier to find, understand, and use data. We make data “meaningful” using Semantic Web technology. This improves data discovery and interoperability so people and machines can unlock its value faster. We’ve built a network where new datasets energize and enhance everything they connect to. This will be added to Statistics Resources and Big Data Subject Tracer™.
