I see #NHSEx has published the slides from its @HDR_UK “Data Access & Discovery” event, charmingly subtitled “A Forest Through the TREs” - on YouTube, if you want to listen:

*I thought the phrase was “cannot see the forest for the TREs”, but hey...
Let’s take a look:…

One reason we use the category term #TRE to refer to Trusted Research (or any other use) Environments that meet the #FiveSafes is that everyone wants to call their own TRE something different, so no-one really knows what they mean...
Call yours what you like (e.g. for @ONS it's their Secure Research Service) but if it only does four #Safes, or three Safes - and if it isn’t also #consensual and fully #transparent - then it's not a #trustworthy TRE...

Perceptions of #dog breed temperments are ingrained in our culture. Breed #stereotypes play out in dog parks, show up in city ordinances & leases, are celebrated at dog shows, and infuse Hollywood movies... but what if I told you dog temperment doesn't work like that? 1/n Morpheous from the Matrix "But what if I told you"

Qué lindo es el #Plugin #QuickOSM de #QGIS!!! Con él se pueden consultar datos de #OpenStreetMap de forma rápida dentro de QGIS.
#Hilo con ejemplos ->
Por ejemplo, se pueden consultar depósitos de agua, tipo cisternas o tanques australianos. Para el Partido de Pergamino la cuenta da aproximadamente 1500 tanques!
También se pueden traer a QGIS molinos de viento. Más de 1000 elementos.

More #inclusive #openscience can help solve society’s most pressing problems—and at a faster pace—but making it mainstream requires systemic institutional change. Our new article:…

"The whole enterprise has to change to truly realize the full benefits of open science..... Technology has not only improved the speed at which science is carried out, but many of the problems scientists study, from climate change to #COVID19, demand urgency."🧵 (2/8)

Finally, the #GoldacreReview is published! (During Parliamentary Easter holidays, mid-ping-pong on the #HealthAndCareBill...)

It's 221 pages - each PDF page is a double page spread - so this could be a lo-o-o-ong [Thread].

Here goes...
First point to note, in the Terms of Reference (p5), is that this is about "access to #NHSdata by #researchers, #commissioners, and #innovators" - i.e. #Planning and #CommercialReUse - so it is directly relevant to the operation of millions of people's #NationalDataOptOuts...

Der Bundesrechnungshof hat herausgefunden, dass das @BMI_Bund auf ihrem #ozg Dashboard gelogen hat.

Als meine langjährigen Leser*innen werdet ihr natürlich wissen, dass ich darauf bereits 2020 hingewiesen habe. 😉 (

Ich komme allerdings auf unter 3%, wobei meine Datengrundlage, das offizielle #ozg Informationsportal, auch nicht gut ist.
Der Witz daran ist auch, dass das @BMI_Bund die Grafiken auf dem Dashboard alle schon einmal angepasst hatte, aber eben immernoch falsch.

Preparing for a technical interview for a #DataScience position? These are some of the questions that typically allow me as an interviewer to quickly distinguish between juniors and mediors, including some quick tips 🧵. #Python #pythonprogramming #DataScientist #Jobs
All questions about SQL. Not the hardest thing to learn, but many #DataScientists only start to learn the value of SQL when they actually become part of a dev team. I’m not only talking about SELECT * FROM table, but also about joins, truncates, partitions and constraints.
Interacting with an API. Make sure you know your requests (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, PATCH), as well as the #Python requests library.

Die Suche nach Oligarchenvermögen in Österreich geht nur schleppend voran (…) - ein Grund hierfür ist, dass z.B. das WiReg ("Register der wirtschaftlichen Eigentümer") nur einschränkt durchsuchbar ist. Unlösbar? Nein! Schauen wir uns dies an - ein Thread 🧵
Das WiReg wurde 2018 im Rahmen der Umsetzung von EU-Richtlinien für die Zwecke der Verhinderung von Geldwäscherei & Terrorismusfinanzierung eingerichtet & beinhaltet Daten über die wirtschaftlichen Eigentümer von Gesellschaften, Stiftungen & Trusts… 2/

How successful has DLUHC @luhc been in matching domestic Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) to Unique Property Reference Numbers (UPRNs)? #energyefficiency #opendata #proptech

● data
● info… +…

🧵 1/9
DLUHC has recently released bulk data for EPCs lodged to the end of 2021. That dataset contains 22,243,396 EPCs.

UPRNs have been allocated to 20,551,337 records (92%).

Of those records, 8% of UPRNs were allocated by energy assessors and 92% by matching to OS AddressBase.

How many properties are there on the EPC register? Nobody knows.

EPCs are only required when a property is built, sold or rented, and are valid for ten years. A property may have multiple EPCs. There is no mechanism for updating the register when a property is demolished.

THREAD: In celebration of the 2022 #OpenDataDay, we call upon our stewards, partners and the international community at large to organize a #BetterBudget Dataquest for Sustainable Development and/or a Public Infrastructure Data #RallyFromHome or #DataOnTheStreets Rally.
Are you a government agency that publishes budget information in #opendata or a civil society organization that works with #fiscalopendata?

Whether you work at the national or local level, GIFT’s user engagement initiatives are for you! 2/11
Through these initiatives, we aim to encourage CSOs and govts to work together to leverage the power of #opendata in the better understanding of how public resources are being spent and contribute to the development independent and innovative analysis of public #fiscaldata. 3/11

Nach über 2 Jahren #Corona-Zahlen in #Deutschland auf Landkreisebene haben wir als Team beschlossen, dass der 8. März unser letzter Tag für die LK-Zählung sein wird, um uns auf andere Katastrophen zu konzentrieren. Aber das ist nicht das Ende von #Corona oder den Zahlen! (1/x)
Die letzten zwei Jahre waren eine lange Reise, und das erweiterte Team möchte sich vor allem bei unseren Familien und euch allen für die Unterstützung bei der täglichen LK-Zählung bedanken - Tag und Nacht. 💕
Nichts an #Corona war/ist normal, aber zum Glück gab es ein deutsches und weltweites Team aus Wissenschaftlern, Analysten, Politikern und interessierten Menschen, die ihr Bestes gaben, um jeden Tag neue Erkenntnisse, Trends, Insights und ihren kleinen Teil beizutragen.

Do something. Believe me - I know that call, that drive. 12 years ago I turned my life upside down, changed careers to became a 'digital humanitarian', learned new skills, and converged with others on the complex journey to use data and tech for impact. 🧵 on some suggestions.
People before data/technology. (Full stop. Deep breath. Roll shoulders.) How will it help people in this emergency and others? I have gotten multiple notes on various social media platforms and really hope that that passion to do something can convert to action -now &over time.
Ask yourself - What are the skills, tools, and networks that I need to get involved? What do people really need from us? How will I also take care of myself and my people? Honestly, onboarding into digital, data & tech for impact is rocky and full of complexity. Start somewhere.

We need the #EuropeanUnion and the #UnitedStates to open up all their registries of land and property to investigative reporters and researchers to be able to look up real estate owned by Putin and his cronies. #Ukraine
The Kremlin and its oligarchs source their lethal power from the obscurity of secret bank accounts and hidden real estate in the West. Unified and open registries of real estate across the EU and the US would considerably expose Russian kleptocrats (and not only) #Kleptocracy
It is high time to massively #OpenData in property registries, unify them, match them against lists of PEPs and their offshores, do #OSINT on the physical locations (as these people tend to cluster) and go back to the data to expose more. #transparency

#IDatiCheVorrei: @GiorgiaLodi spulcia in pochi minuti i quattro pilastri #FAIR dei buoni dati aperti: Findable, Accessible, Interoperable e Reusable.

#Findable: devono essere ben indicizzati e ben descritti. In particolare i dati devono essere corredati di #metadata, o di tag univoci e persistenti.
#Accessibility: devono essere accessibili, sia dal punto di vista del modo in cui è conservato che dalla sua esposizione al pubblico tramite un'appropriata infrastruttura.

Ce matin j’ai été auditionné au Sénat, lors d’une commission d’enquête concernant les affaires sociales, sur les sujets d’ouverture des données en lien avec le #Covid19. Nous avons essayé d’apporter des réponses les plus complètes possibles avec @nicolasberrod et @gforestier. ImageImage
Pour information, différentes commissions d’enquête au Sénat convoquent différents responsables ou acteurs du public afin d’analyser le fonctionnement de l’Etat et d’esquisser des pistes d’amélioration (la convocation est non refusable).
Nous avons répondu à des questions concernant l’ouverture de données sur le #Covid19, ainsi que les différents freins qui ont pu être pu être rencontrés.

Les chiffres d’hospitalisations Covid19 communiqués chaque jour incluent toutes les personnes hospitalisées ayant été testées positives. Parmi elles, combien sont réellement soignées “pour Covid19” ?

@SantePubliqueFr ne publie toujours pas les données en #OpenData. • 1
Cependant, quelques informations ont été données dans le dernier point épidémiologique. Voici ici en bleu les hospitalisations Covid19. La partie hachurée en blanc concerne les personnes soignées pour Covid.

Semaine dern. 12 815 admissions Covid, dont 10 257 soignées pour Covid.
L’agence explique aussi que le taux d’admissions Covid19 soignées pour autre chose est en légère hausse. Effet Omicron ?
On passe de 85% soignées pour Covid19 il y a trois semaines à 80% la semaine dernière. • 3
