There is a growing awareness that facilitating access to data encourages collaborative science and knowledge advancement. How far are we willing to go in this direction and what are some of the implications? How does this affect intellectual property, authority of source and peer review? Kim Hill discusses these questions with Julian Carver, founder of Seradigm and spokesperson for Open New Zealand; Ed Corkery, Chief Executive, Koordinates, facilitating online access to geospatial datasets; Peter Griffin, manager, Science Media Centre and technology commentator for Radio New Zealand and New Zealand Listener.
Kim Hill and her panel ask whether the advent of the digital age changes the accepted ways in which we connect and behave? Do those born into the digital world have different attitudes to intellectual property, to social connection, to future planning? Kim Hill chats about these and other questions with Digital natives Guy Ryan, Erika Pearson and Bronwyn Holloway-Smith.
Technology enables us to perceive and to act beyond the limits of our natural senses and to blur the boundaries between the natural and virtual worlds. We can now see what was previously invisible. What does this mean for our future? Kim Hill discusses these questions and many more with Dr Mark Sagar, Richard Simpson, and Dr Cornel de Ronde in the third of our Big Data discussions.
Change can occur gradually or it can happen rapidly, disrupting the current state of place. What are the impacts of sudden change, particularly in the urban environment? How can we plan resilient cities that can cope with sudden change? Kim Hill discusses these questions and many more with Dr Mark Quigley, Sir Bob Harvey and Professor Janis Birkeland.
The first discussion panel of the Big Data series considers the questions: what makes a place? How is place imbued with personal and communal meaning? How do urbanisation and globalisation affect place and what might future places look and feel like? Kim Hill is joined by: Kevin Sweeney, formerly New Zealand Geospatial Custodian; Bill Macnaught, National Librarian of New Zealand; Stephen McDougall, director, Studio Pacific Architecture.
