This report examines the opportunities of enhancing access to and sharing of data
(EASD) in the context of the growing importance of artificial intelligence and the
Internet of Things. It discusses how EASD can maximise the social and economic value
of data re-use and how the related risks and challenges can be addressed. It highlights
the trade-offs, complementarities and possible unintended consequences of policy action
– and inaction. It also provides examples of EASD approaches and policy initiatives
in OECD countries and partner economies.
