The Data Divide - A Society Divided By Data

Software Engineering Dissertation

Open Data is a way to create accountability and transparency, to empower people to make more informed choices, and to engage individuals in greater civic participation... But what about the people who don't know how to access this data?

What are the consequences of leaving these individuals in the dark, without access to data? Can we mitigate this effect?

This formed the basis for my Software Engineering research project, in which I authored an article and poster. First class and awarded prize for best poster.
