dataset license

I've read the rules and wanted to clarify about the usage of datasets.
can you confirm that the datasets used must be open source as well?

    Hi Tom - the dataset must be made available under the CDLA-Permissive 1.0 License (see https://cdla.io/). The CDLA-Permissive agreement is similar to permissive open source licenses in that the publisher of data allows anyone to use, modify and do what they want with the data with no obligations to share any of their changes or modifications.

    ok. sounds like this makes ideas extremely limited to a few areas where data is available. lets say I use Fitbit data, how can I make that available under the license? do you have a list of open data to use?

    also, please clarify that only data set included in the submissions must be CDLA or the entire ongoing data from that service must be CDLA as well? I'm a bit confused here.

    Hi Tom - to clarify, the submitted data must be CDLA-compliant as well as any future data that could be used by the technology. With regards to public datasets, there are a number of open sources of public data sets available. A few examples include:
    - https://www.data.gov/
    - https://www.opensciencedatacloud.org/publicdata/
    - http://archive.ics.uci.edu/ml/datasets.html
    - https://www.kdnuggets.com/datasets/index.html
