Data design in Public sector

NOTE: Live Q&A will take place here.

People don’t make decisions based on public data. Moreover, they often can’t understand it. It’s necessary to remember that people make decisions based on emotions, even when designing open data. Governmental statistics are incomprehensible for ordinary citizens. They react to stories. Therefore, even though there is more open data than ever, there is no growing trust in the state. This talk offers alternative data approaches that could help the government gain trust from the public — and why, despite everything, it usually doesn't take these paths.
