called and this is a sign up here all I saw was my close your mouth that's not gonna work so well with and so based on and my name is Anna Ross um I work for an organization called the Foundation we help open source projects Open Data projects Mamassian here talk a lot about that today although we do have some talks coming up this afternoon their that products not talk a little bit but more about that later and so might have such a little different than the low toxic morning so I'm not talking about any specific technologies section away more of a non-technical talk a also away probably funny point the schedule because much talking little bit about sort setting the stage for big data and so markets talk and Peters talk and uh was very very much related to what I'm going to talk about some before I do looks like leadership she's my magic slide sort of so before I do talk about that I just wanna do a quick shadow uh to an event taking place in March in California on the conference chair actually have a number of our team here today so here's what a wave your hands was robbed there's fewer people here because any here the of this not so and that takes place inside a California so certainly the weather today is helping us so market this event as a great event focusing a lot of open source geospatial technologies Open Data technologies and that's a lot of fun if you haven't been to a phosphor you before I come to this one hour come to another 1 actually ones in Europe and foster the coming up in the fall I really really great events with lots of really great speakers and content so than me people have heard the term software is eating the world before really I'm surprised by that um so
Marc Andreessen user Guide involved with fighting Netscape uh back in the day wrote a famous blog I think actually came Wall Street Journal article talking about how software is eating the world and what's interesting about it in this area see how this fits into my talk in a minute is that almost everything out there today have software integrated integrated into its so consumer devices automotive vehicles and what not and so on waterways even companies who aren't software companies that start to look and smell a lot a software company they have sought for developers on staff and they have issues affecting their products and services that our software issues and so way software is very rapidly becoming an integral part of business even if you're a grocery store or a waste disposal company or know companies that would normally have any do suffer per say and so this is not terribly surprising and so
but I do a different version written this talk where states their fault and their fault and their fault so that basically uh the software and data is becoming a big problem and simply put uh were were generally more data so a couple the talks earlier Marcus and Peter talked about that how data is becoming almost overwhelming I such long past overwhelming and it's just an article the other day in Canada where I'm from where are the National Security Agency's saying yeah we got the data but this is too much of it and we can make sense of it is is coming in too fast and we kept process so even though we had it in every action go back and look in retrospect we can see the things that tell us that no problems happens when somebody came up on the Parliament Hill with a gun you that she had the the the data the evidence the energy that was likely to happen but they can get to it in time and so on not surprising but we are overwhelmed the data from the other thing that I just a quick point here about computer computer vision and some the machine learning and automation stuff that's happening is that this is continuing to accelerate I think it's gonna get self-driving cars were able to go into an unexplored area in action method automatically and you generate and send data back I think is going to get a more more of a hand so that the point that is simply
drowning in data but now and when you hear people talking right about that big data him talk about uh the 3 the users are sometimes 5 meter succeeded in things that the key ones are basically velocity and variety and volume have it's more than that because if you think about it and I think each of you in this room I live this every day you're taking data from a number of different sources so you might be taking OpenStreetMap data you may be taking GeoNames data points of interest data from other sources may be taking national what weather agency in your country data from there as you taking data from that number of different sources there's 1 person I was talking to from the Environmental Protection Agency in United States are they take data from 90 different sources and so for them it's very overwhelming to take that that data those datasets complaint the matching get to something that they can use them by time I get the data is already out of date and have to start over and do it again and it's a very painful process now the other 1 is say this is really important I don't know if you've ever been in a major city where there's a uh transit um system breaks down or trying to fly from 1 place in the world to another part of a world where the the flight system the system this breaks down and things aren't working properly and your transportation communications agriculture entertainment everything is is software and data related so busy these things don't work that we have a very bad day in society starts to crumble so that she can scares me and so in a previous life time worked in telecom where we try to make everything 5 and 6 lines FullProf reliable it had anticipate any possible failure an action and you redundancy with 1 service which is on 1 side of the world analysis which is a little world I don't think that way and so such a quite scary that software in data that makes society so brittle so but in addition to all this um were
actually interacting with this so I'm sure many of you are e-mailing back and forth and actually I'm looking the schedule and you doing and bi-directional data flows in terms of uh figure out what you intuitively looks like figure out what is what is going to do next the communicating with their friends around the world and so it's not just simply taking something and downloading it is actually taking something downloading modifying it sharing part you partial data back a completely back distributed to somebody else that's was those workflows that make things a lot more complicated so again you know the place something social media smartphones as really make this so much easier than it used to be in interphase there should be you handle a lot easier to do this so that in my mind what's happening is this some were going from a system
where have we have more need for real-time and uh interactions with the data we wanna what's happening right now we don't know what's happening here last week last month last year some people are doing research on it to look at that that's good and important but increasingly we wanna know what's really happening right now and also the the interactions of the data become increasingly complex so uh and for those of you i imagine most severe are used most of your developers just quick show of hands who who well developed suffering here yeah that almost every Michael see there's no all about get you all the distributed version control and you know all you talking that that basically um there is no 1 central version of the truth there's no um uh 1 uh central place work everybody Dallas the amassed exactly uh the version for everybody it's actually bring much more complicated new ones in people are costly interacting in changing making making adjustments all the time so we talked about earlier you know much of our world depends on software data but I Cadillacs people get really better shape using how Google's taking over the world or are as restating of the world or use the Microsoft is taking in the world so far for those of you have been doing that open source and a little bit of open data but mostly open source software uh since the nineties actually early nineties In back then we were deathly afraid Microsoft Microsoft has so much power the I don't think anybody is all that terribly afraid Microsoft anymore I think things change quite dramatically so I'm not sure that bothered by any 1 particular gender uh because things change over time it and if you look at you look at Apple apples of printing money hand over fist hugely successful today but if they don't learn how to do something else you know well then in time what they did so well that more money becomes kind of a relevant and something else replaces it so on now I said about um uh single there's no what this really means is that no single vendor clashes solve these problems so it's not going to be a Google things like the Apple thing facebook thing here you you pick a vendor that no 1 government solve these things and so the only way to do this and says very topical you're given that we're here is an open-source conference is that we need to collaborate so I we do that and so but this is basically what I do for a living is encourage people that they can do this successfully and they're not actually giving up things that are important to them like making money and having gainful employment and basically being the collaborate with other people and share their research share the data and industry make society better I so generally this is no 1 simple way of looking at it but that people collaborate on the commodity components and so they do things if it doesn't make sense and in the past and especially in terms of of the types of functions of libraries that you guys and place the runner-up from company compasses is is something unique about how you calculate the area of a polygon is a something unique about how you calculate the length of a 1 string you you you calculate how the overlapper intersected in all kinds of simple features you from from what you said you do that somehow different and special the occurred you competitor in the funny part is of actually not method why on earth are you running the same software know as a competitor everybody else in fact what is good open source libraries of that that you should be using you should be contributing back to our so analog cases um that was convincing to the cigarette that we should actually collaborate we should look for these kinds of opportunities and is so this is this is important now on the other side of things that here in this audience and I can tell you I've been doing a software offer least 25 years and I've work with people have been doing it even longer than I have there is never going to be 1 true open datasets with all the software is just not gonna happen so we have to be realistic you're going to have a pragmatics of open and proprietary technologies that's just the way the world works and so we have to be mindful of that um and she having these kinds of models which allow part open participation collaboration there really important to now about them
and this and for those of you who haven't been heavily immersed in open source communities and collaboration is this phenomenon so I have a more complicated version of this talk or start to talk about the different companies forming partnerships in working together so point-to-point already got 1 set of non-disclosure agreements 1 set of of what the rules of the road for working with each other and you added a 3rd organization all is complicated because of a separate set of document between the 3 organizations yet for just becomes overwhelming so we get 5 6 10 it's a nightmare so they just simply cannot collaborate effectively is so this is why doing this in an open source project Community Foundation makes so much sense is that you you really minimize minimize some at low value or even no value overhead and must be a lot more effective so so I'm getting back to the things that we talked about with the big data and really what we
want is to be of have big data and I'm I'm picking a few specific projects and action domain to be offensive that exclude other was because there's a lot of really amazing and the product on all aspects of this kind of technologies that that's appears rather than product is a fantastic that they get a product that's over here what do you mean that you have to do is just keep a concise so take this with a grain so I'm not trying to uh exclude others as the so many new technologies that can include them all so what we really want is we don't begin on everything right when you're running around a smartphone and you're not gonna have a terabyte of data on your smartphone it's ridiculous not have data in your car which you really need is just the data um for the area of the city that you happen to be in a just the points of interest for the area you were interested in traveling to and just when you need it and you wanna make sure that it's it's current you 1 intriguing updated pull-down any changes so really what we need is actually need little data that is a subclass of big data and we will need you will push and pull back and forth effectively and efficiently us this was really need about these products and popular here's the sum these guys particularly here to here are orbit around talking with the dual Charles projects and on the mobile site you manual talking about mobile not technology was cool about those is um there are protected from the ground up to solve particular problems of very very high performance in the case of chose or and more about the technology to be a very consistent across multiple mobile mobile platforms and very fast and have certain features and capabilities that make them very well suited for this type of thing no but bridging between them is very important as well see what you look there said pull down that big data and put it on your smartphone what you wanna do is this we have something that is just the data what allows you to to manage the sensible way so almost all hands went up when you guys are if you're developers and what that means is that you guys know although get or material or the distributed version control technologies so I talk about gig which is basically a get like implementation for spatial data you probably not your hand OK that sounds kind of cool so that the take data from OpenStreetMap or PostGIS or Oracle Spatial article server I pull it down to have a local copy of it may changes in our seed as you're making changes just like you would get for source code you should see what will change what why they changed it and compare 2 versions of should push and pull things back and forth between different people so it's it's a really game-changing protocol in service and library and in a way to to to deal with the and I think it's it's quite cause what these differ technologies open up the suddenly we can do these kinds of things and I don't even so the big thing the big guys intuitive or exceptionally good job about this so I mean yes uh what what Google is doing is very cool and they are definitely a leader and in many ways but I think in a lot of ways as technology changes in innovation happens as can have them as well as so I think I think and this open collaboration around some these technologies especially build up the big community in incomes a de-facto standard implementing open standards I think it's so it's a very interesting thing in terms of what it what it means for the world and for society so now I am I don't talk a lot about my slides actually do this talk without slides at all so that model that weird but I'm actually and it's an evil more fun and more and more interesting but now what they would do I talk about is essential not technology for technology's sake and that's the thing at us technologies we lose sight of I can tell you Sonya the doing suffer for 25 years I can't tell you how many times people's eyes glaze over as a start stop talking about how fast something is or you know how much better this protocol is a how much more robust approach with it's not about that all you guys know this is this such thing you doing is actually making society better so this planned city better let's be better stewards for the environment and let's that the I talked about security so the space use that data and figure out what's going happen and see if we can prevent novice we can't always a mature society remains an open society in welcoming to all but these are the types of things that that we want to secession more about the people the society so that it is necessarily about the about the technology for itself so now that said Michael technology just like you so so just to almost wrap up
I think 2 more slides classes article prices and talk about here and you guys haven't seen it please do check of grasshopper that's amazing routing library that's super super fast and really cool and uh the work the peers doing on that it's just amazing and you the manual talk today about mobile not technology which is an awesome amazing library there's another 1 out there uh by German and Steve Gifford call really global we also really cool uh in really need definitely need to see in fact uh if you're interested in that kind of stuff me you like manuals talk concious after because we can we can demo for you and were raped in front you the smartphones and stuff show things you can do Patrick coziness easy emptiness of the talk here today talking about the integration between cesium OpenLayers 3 which is actually another talk I encourage you to check out and the the year this really cool cool project was born out of foster important last year called load so this another initiative I encourage you check out so it's not just about them as a talking version controlling dataset you find the data in the 1st place so what June load and there's other editions of the mean to do is become sort of an index of where you can get great data sources from producers used as so yeah on location deck is a comedian I'm heavily involved with and some of the projects listed below our instances of project the host there so we do all kinds of services so Legal Services and IT infrastructure services and and build a really and services so busy or whatever you can do to help the products to be successful and so I like encourage you to check it out so just to wrap up and enjoyed they here this is really cool event a lot of smart people and I encourage you to use open source software and open data and in fall standards whenever it makes sense it's not always gonna make sense so that's sort of a gray guys be doing stuff long time don't get bogged down in there too much and try to remain curious I you have to be proper pragmatic sometimes and that's OK but um so I don't talk about that uh uh being being pragmatic and mixing technologies and I encourage you to get involved in some of the technologies that are covered today so I think for many of you grasses pronouns off really cool project that is amazing to see from the performance enhancements that doing something that the user interfaces which that's very very exciting for me and some these you produce a product you probably have heard of before so I encourage you go up and talk to the speaker and get to know what they're doing so and that's it I think the problem have a couple minutes just for some quick questions if anybody has future similar things so if anybody wants him stickers doesn't figure here to yeah so it's amazing at this conference the stickers just go crazy IP everybody's gravel stickers and international so that please help itself yeah the OK if there's no questions or thank you very much for listening to me and enjoy your day
