Session 3 – Smarter Governments: Transformative Models and Big Datas.

“Data was staring them in the face, yet they did not see.” 80% of governments are not using existing big data analysis tools in social media and the like, which is problematic. Smarter governments require smarter people, and this is where we need to focus our attention. Knowledge management through big data will lead to increased wisdom, and more intelligent societies. Data is like water: it can be wild and difficult to tame, but its momentum can be used to achieve great things. – Dr. Alan Shark, Executive Director at Public Technology Institute
