James Smith, developer at the ODI, is standing for parliament in the 2016 UK general election, and is using open data to do it.
In this lecture, he explained how the data that’s out there can provide interesting insights for election campaign planning, and how he’s also planning to publish as much open data as possible on campaign financing.
James is passionate about using web technology and Open Data to make a better future for everyone, with a particular interest in the environmental and social benefits that can be created.
