Metadata rules for open data & building better infrastructure for collaborative research
Metadata Rules: the need for and use of ontologies and metadata to promote data openness, reusability and integration; & Building Better Infrastructure: interoperability needs humans and computers to work together to produce meaningful data objects for the modern collaborative enterprise. Robert Davey is Data Infrastructure and Algorithms Group Leader at Earlham Institute where he leads a group in researching how best to manage, represent and analyse data for open science, as well as exploring new hardware, algorithms and methodologies to develop tools to push the boundaries of data-driven informatics in the life sciences. Robert’s main interests are in enterprise-grade software development, with over 15 years experience in system administration, programming, and web service technologies. When we heard the Rob was travelling from the UK to Australia for a conference, Melbourne Bioinformatics jumped at the chance to bring him to Melbourne. Please join us for his talk on Fri 24 November 2017 – no registration required.
