Todd Park hosts big data tweet-up

Federal Chief Technology Officer Todd Park is taking on the issue of big data – especially as it relates to the health care field. When asked during a recent Tweet-Up about the biggest barriers to big data, Park said the key is making information liquid and accessible while protecting privacy – which, he said, is doable. Park also encouraged agencies to make sure they release data in machine-readable formats. He pointed to healthdata.gov as a good example.
