NCBC’s OPENDATA : Pakistan’s One-Stop Data Repository

Availability of data is fundamental to the development of a robust and reliable ecosystem of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Data Analysis. The country lacked a central, one-stop data repository for academia, researchers and policy makers.  NCBC has developed the National Open Data Portal for Pakistan (opendata.com.pk). The portal is envisioned to become a central repository for open data from a range of fields. The portal is indigenously designed, on the lines of the national data portals of developed countries like US (data.gov) and UK (data.gov.uk). Any organization which wishes to share the data can do so through a simple mechanism. The center has ensured that data authenticity and quality is endured during the sharing process. The data bank developed by NCBC is set to become a reliable resource for a range of fields. Users can access the open data here .
