Businesses, government agencies, and non-profits in countries

around the world are transforming virtually every facet of the

economy and society through innovative uses of data. These

changes, brought about by new technologies and techniques

for collecting, storing, analyzing, disseminating, and visualizing

data, are improving the quality of life for billions of individuals

around the world, opening up new economic opportunities, and

creating more efficient and effective governments. Policymakers

can help support these efforts by fostering the development

of human capital, encouraging the advancement of innovative

technology, and promoting the availability of data itself for use

and reuse.


This list provides a sampling, in no particular order, of some of

the most interesting and important contributions data-driven

innovations have made in the past year.
