When you need data from the past, it is too late to start collecting it. If you need satellite data, it is unlikely that you can have your own sensors in the space. Working with open data is sometimes cheaper than with market vendor data. But most open data is not processed. We made the investment to clean it for you.
Our new, vertical observatories bring ESG and antitrust solutions from our domain-specific observatories. The competition observatory is in an early, conceptual phase. We are currently making progress with the ESG reporting issue, which overlap, for example, in providing evidence against greenwashing.
A very cold winter is coming to Europe.Thermowatt is looking for specific locations in the Hague, then South Holland, then in the Benelux, then in the EU, to pump out the energy from lukewarm wastewater, protecting both your energy costs, the climate, and the biodiversity of natural water bodies.
Just weeks before the tragic, but sadly predictable Belgian floods we connected some open, but unprocessed opinion poll data about the perception of flood risk, hydrological data about the actual risk of flood, and public finance data in the extremely decentralized country.The data has been there, but it was not in a form that public policymakers, insurers of NGOs could have used directly. We are looking for partners to create similar use cases with for computational antitrust researchers or practitioners.

We are looking for partners within the Dutch AI Coalition Culture and Media Working Group and similar organizations to integrate our data observatories into global knowledge graphs and to use them deploy trustworthy AI. ☛ blogspot ☛ slides
Participating in open source is often a highly collaborative experience. We’re encouraged to create in public view, and we’re incentivize to welcome contributions of all kinds from people around the world. This makes the practice of open source as much social as it is technical. ☛ slides
Reprex is a Netherlands-based data science startup founded in 2020. We help to decrease the inequalities caused by big data and AI, and we thrive to make an impact on the UN SDG agenda.We are finalists in The Hague Innovators Award 2022 competition.
Reprex signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Culture of the Slovak Republic, the Economic University of Bratislava, SOZA, and Sinus (on behalf of the Open Music Europe) consortium on utilizing the Open Policy Analysis results.
The latest Reprex R package, dataset was released today on the Comprehensive R Archive Network. It is a very early, conceptual package that will help make scientific achievements more open, governmental data easier to find, and store information that can be better combined.
In this case study, we will collect responses in English and Italian among music professionals and fans on LineCheck, and compare their answers with 10,000s of answers from their countries, from other occupational groups, and other countries.
Reprex won the Audience Prize in The Hague Innovators Challenge - with about as many votes as the 7 other contenters combined. We really wanted to prove that big data can work for small organizations, too.
We are concerned about the implosion of ‘social media’, and we believe that truly public space can never go private. We are joining Mastodon and helping our curators and partners to make the transition until there is more clarity about the future of Twitter and Facebook.
From open data and open-source statistical software to data-as-service.
This report was commissioned by the Music Creators’ Earnings Project as an empirical analysis of justified and unjustified differences in music creators’ music streaming earnings.
Urgent consideration should be given to a user-centric payment system, as well as greater transparency of the factors underpinning playlist creation and of negotiated agreements
While the US have already taken steps to provide an integrated data space for music as of 1 January 2021, the EU is facing major obstacles not only in the field of music but also in other creative industry sectors. Weighing costs and benefits, there can be little doubt that new data improvement initiatives and sufficient investment in a better copyright data infrastructure should play a central role in EU copyright policy. A trade-off between data harmonisation and interoperability on the one hand, and transparency and accountability of content recommender systems on the other, could pave the way for successful new initiatives.
Why are the total market shares of Slovak music relatively low both on the domestic and the foreign markets? How can we measure the market share of the Slovak music in the domestic and foreign markets? We offer some answers and solution based on empirical research and with the creation of a database and an AI application."
The topic of the paper is Library Genesis (LG), the biggest piratical scholarly library on the internet, which provides copyright infringing access to more than 2.5 million scientific monographs, edited volumes, and textbooks. The paper uses advanced statistical methods to explain why researchers around the globe use copyright infringing knowledge resources. The analysis is based on a huge usage dataset from LG, as well as data from the World Bank, Eurostat, and Eurobarometer, to identify the role of macroeconomic factors, such as R&D and higher education spending, GDP, researcher density in scholarly copyright infringing activities.
