Open data and content mining

31 October 2012

Should data used in scientific articles be available to all? Are we losing opportunities - and dollars - because we can't extract and re-use names, numbers, places, chemicals, organisms, graphs and tables in published articles?

Peter Murray-Rust (University of Cambridge and Open Knowledge Foundation) believes so. In this seminar he'll outline why he thinks we need to change to an open access model and how it can be done.
