Making Dataset Interoperable and Machine Readable: Operative Workshop
Valerio Graziano, Enrico Bonaiuti. (26/2/2019). Making Dataset Interoperable and Machine Readable: Operative Workshop.
Data curation has become a key component to ensure accuracy of research and usability of its results. The International Center for Agricultural Research in Dry Areas (ICARDA) with the participation of the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) has led this operative workshop with the aim of a) raising awareness of the importance of datasets cleanliness for machine reading and knowledge sharing for reusability and collaboration in research, b) analyze together with the scientists their constraints in dataset compiling and use in the perspective of promoting their results by also promoting their datasets. The General Dataset Curation Guide (GDCG) – compiled in partnership with the CRP on Grain Legumes and Dryland Cereals (GLDC), CRP on Livestock (LIVESTOCK), Platform on Big Data (BDP) and ICARDA GeoAgro – has been presented and the solutions it offers have been tested live by the scientists, providing ground for future discussion and more in-depth analysis of the subject.
