  • Linux Foundation: Why Open Data Matters

    LF getting into Open Data in a big way (via Luis Villa). This is interesting, particularly with this angle:

    Digging down to open data specifically, the team say that open data will have a similar impact over time in the world of Large Language Models (LLMs) and Machine Learning (ML). [….] “Today, there are a growing number of high quality open data collections for training LLMs and other AI systems. Sharing well-trained and tested AI models openly will minimize waste in energy and human resources while advancing efforts to deploy AI in the battle against poverty, climate change, waste, and contribute to quality education, smart cities, electric grids and sustainable, economic growth etc,” said Dolan. “To achieve all that can be achieved, the use of open data must be done ethically. Private information needs to be protected. Data governance needs to be protected. Open data must be transparent top to bottom.”
    100% behind all of this!
