Data access is fundamentally linked to economic opportunity, improved governance, better science, and citizen empowerment.
As outlined in Stefaan Verhulst’s brilliant article titled The ethical imperative to identify and address data and intelligence asymmetries – as economies and society in general have grown more complex, the truth of the aphorism ‘knowledge is power’ has only increased.
Increased data access and data sharing by all levels of government to community organisations, not-for-profits, and service providers working at the grassroots is the key to unlocking the transformational potential of data equality.
There are many examples emerging of this in action in Australia, including data-driven Justice Reinvestment in Bourke saving NSW Government $5Million through diversions from the criminal justice system, and early education being transformed through data access and machine learning in Logan, QLD.
