IIC Colloquium – Data Is the Network: Link or Die | Initiative in Innovative Computing – 11/19

ø

In a world now dominated by social networking and wireless communication, most scientific information remains stubbornly locked up in specialized databases, institutional repositories and domain-specific applications. New strategies are needed to free all of this information from the rigid containers, frameworks and work processes in which it is born and increasingly dies. In particular, software engineering must be rethought so that interoperability, openness, and extensibility are designed into data structures. Can data be organized as an active, evolving, open network of heterogeneous concerns and affordances, free of the control of any single software agent or framework? The speaker will describe promising new opportunities making data radically portable and worthy of long-term preservation and access, drawing on several projects in the “semantic grid,” e-science, and digital preservation communities.
