Discover Open Data Challenge
Create an assistant to find, understand and take Open Data as a practical guide in the pocket.
User-friendly assistant for all Austrian Open Data to make an asset to tangible benefits of the digitalization. So citizens and people who work in business and science are able to find, understand and use data.
Participation, Smart citizens, Data literacy
Bring machine-readable data to human-readable data. The assistance starts with a user-friendly interface, e.g. a Bot, which assists in searching and finding data. The assistant helps to rise data literacy, which is an unrestricted competence to work in the digital world. The assistant helps to deal with data in a timely manner and place it in context and question it.
The service also advertises the organizations providing data and even more for existing data. The assistant also allows to comment datasets in an easy way, e.g. to describe, why a dataset has been used or for which use case it is helpful or why a dataset is a favorite. So also the publishing organizations get feedback to their data.
