How in a world becoming increasingly more reliant on data, we can best use this data to address some of the major challenges we face, including developing renewable energy, climate change impacts, healthcare and improving global agriculture.

Gavin Starks is one of open data's great architects, he was the founding chief executive of the UK's Open Data Institute, working alongside World Wide Web inventor Sir Tim Berners-Lee and computer scientist Professor Sir Nigel Shadbolt.

He has co-created over a dozen data driven organisations, and in 2015 at the request of Britain's Treasury he co-chaired the development of the Open Banking standard, laying the foundations for regulation.
