1st International Conference of FAIR Digital Objects "Turning the Internet into a meaningful data space"
|Date:||26 October 2022 to 28 October 2022|
|Location:||Leiden, The Netherlands|
We have been living a data revolution for decades now. Every day, peta bytes of information of all kinds are generated and made accessible on the Internet.
The amount of data is indeed so massive and varied that it is not feasible for humans to make sense of it using current processes and standards. What to do then?
We can keep on creating and publishing information but will we manage it, use it, interpret it and exchange it efficiently?
Successful management, exchange and interpretation of knowledge in an ever-growing information tsunami will depend on highly automated methods dealing with combined data. This will require artificial intelligence but also robust and informative ways to store and disseminate data and metadata. Here is where one crucial concept shows up: FAIR Digital Objects (FDOs).
FAIR is about making data findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable both for humans and machines. FAIR digital objects have shown key capabilities to simplify and scale the use of data across domains, increase trust in data and ease the handling of high volumes of information.
The developments are there. Now we need widespread consensus.
