We are living in an age of superabundant information. The Internet and World Wide Web have been the agents of this revolution. This deluge of information and data has led to a range of scientific discoveries and engineering innovations. Data at Web scale has allowed us to characterise the shape and structure of the Web itself and to efficiently search its billions of items of contents. Data published on the Web has enabled the mobilisation of hundreds of thousands of humans to solve problems beyond any individual or single organisation. Open government data published on the Web is improving the efficiency and accountability of our public services. Open data is giving rise to open innovation that is generating social, environmental and economic value. Data science is emerging as an area of competitive advantage for individuals, companies, public and private sector organisations and nation states. A Web of data offers new opportunities and challenges for science, government and business. This Alec Reeves lecture will discuss these fast moving developments and how they will impact our lives.
