Friday lunchtime lectures at the Open Data Institute.
You bring your lunch, we provide tea & coffee, an interesting talk, and enough time to get back to your desk.
For our 20 June lecture... Open Data, Open Web: Just A Passing Fad?
The Web has transformed our lives so much over the last twenty years that we think of it as an inevitable development and a permanent part of our world. In this talk, Professor Carr will explain how the open web we know is just one of many attempts over the last century to build a planet-wide network of information. Why was this one successful? And will it continue to be so?
Professor Leslie Carr is a Director of the Web Science Institute at the University of Southampton where he researches the impact of network technologies on our lives and economy, and in particular on the research and knowledge industries.
