Data. They are a promise for life in the city. With data we can tackle major problems. Examine. Discover. Create. Resolve. Data makes cities smarter. But wiser too?
What happens with all the data? Who do they belong to? Who develops the algorithms? Does everyone benefit from it? In other words, how should we handle data responsibly?
With Tada, the Amsterdam Economic Board has released a manifesto that concerns the responsible use of urban data. Written by professionals from the Amsterdam region, Tada invites governments, companies and other organisations to use and sign the document. Using six clear principles, the Tada manifesto is designed to help shape a 'responsible digital city'.
The full manifesto is available on the designated Tada website, along with the invitation and possibility to sign.
