What is the reality and what do we know about making smart software? In the meantime the Internet and World Wide Web have transformed our lives. However, our understanding of these systems when used by millions globally is still in its infancy. What are the insights that studying these Social Machines provide to help us understand the evolving Web of the 21st Century?

Open data published on the Web is improving the efficiency of our public services and giving rise to open innovation. Data collected at scale by public and private agencies also gives rise to concerns about its use and abuse. This data deluge also presents challenges.This lecture will discuss these fast moving developments and how they complement each other.
