Knowledge Unix: Sharing and Enrichment of (Digital) Data.
The purpose of the Knowledge Unix: Sharing and Enrichment of (Digital) Data Project is to study the sharing of digital data and the possibility of creating a system for interoperability of all knowledge resources. The assumption is that better achievement in all fields would result from a combination of access to a wider range of evidence (data), more powerful and versatile tools, and greater confidence in definitions and specifications.
The project timeframe is one year. The project plan includes, but is not limited to: 1) Case studies - Professor Lancaster (Buddhist canon) and Professor Michael Frenklach (combustion chemistry) will examine data sharing through the lens of a specific problem within their expertise; 2) Professor Michael Buckland will take the lead on the state of the art of documentation (data curation, metadata standards, disambiguation, work practices, R&D funding policies, etc.), and how this project overlaps (or not) with other initiatives; 3) The project will also provide an opportunity to explore options for further funding for extended research as well as implications for educational programs.
