Let's talk about Open data in a casual style at the library cafe of Ibaraki University.
Open data -- The idea that certain data should be freely available to everyone to use and republish as they wish, without restrictions from copyright, patents or other mechanisms of control. Especially in government-owned data, the rationale behind open government data can be considered as twofold. First, advocates contend that making government data available to the public in open formats increases government transparency and accountability. Second, open data should enable third parties to leverage the potential of government data through the development of applications and services that address public and private demands.
We plan to hold open data cafe monthly basis. The cafe is located on the 1st floor of the main library for University Ibaraki. On the evening of the 1st Saturday, why don't you talk over open data in a casual mood?

The previous event's themes
This time, we want to dip into the world of machine learning (ML).
The machine learning is the state-of-the-art of computer science and requires the deep understanding of mathematics. But thanks to the development of the cloud-based service, we can experience the power of the ML easily these days. So we will try to think about the combination of using ML power and open data at open data cafe.
We will also talk about the news related to open data happened in September.
None, anyone who is interested in the open data can attend.
