Participants in the Data Discovery Challenge are given access to useful datasets and resources such as capability building workshops and industry experts advice from both the private and public sector.
Public data used for the challenge was available through the Singaporean government's open data platform, Data.gov.sg. Participants were also given access to Intel’s Mashery API Network via the Data Discovery website, and data from the Federated Data Registry. Participants were also encouraged to include data from their own organizations, and add this data to the Data Registry.
The Challenge was created to help Singapore make better use of the diverse public- and private-sector datasets that could be brought to bear on public problems. Solutions ranged from means for enabling smarter enterprises to improving education and interaction in Singapore.
