6 There was a time when information processing of any kind depended on human mental effort communication was between people everything made was hand made all decisions were a product of mind None of this is now true ICT is changing our world It has never been possible before to speak to anyone in the world ICT delivered that ability to 8% of the world’s population by 1990, over about a century That has grown to an astonishing 40% over just the last 15 years ICT means that voice and images can be sent from anyone in the world to anyone else in the world, at a moments notice, anywhere. It has never been possible for anyone to publish information and have it accessible to everyone This possibility is now available to more than 15% of the world’s population The web shows the highest growth rate of any technology adoption ever The democratisation of information Until now, it was only possible to socialise, work or play with neighbours ICT is drawing this “tyranny of distance” to a close New collaboration, immersion and remote presence technologies stand poised to redefine human interaction Our society was shaped by a truth: only people process information Now, ICT gathers and processes information faster, more reliably and in inhuman quantities Effects include: economic globalisation integrated supply chains remote monitoring and control entirely new knowledge an emerging inhuman cyber world Why Does ICT Matter?

10 Platforms for Collaboration NCRIS ROADMAPRELATED ISSUES Data access and discovery, storage and management Grid enabled technologies and infrastructures Technical expertise High performance computing High capacity communication networks Sharing researcher identities across all systems Allowing researchers and resource owners to control who can do what to their resources Expanding the e-Research community to “non-builder” users Engaging the broader NCRIS community

11 NCRIS: Platforms for CollaborationDr Rhys Francis Investments Collaboration –Discipline/Capability services (tools ((and software)) –User and Operations support –Collaboration support services Data –Outreach, curation, data management services –Meta-services, location, access, movement –Collections brokerage and hosting services Computing –National computing facility (capability computing) –Collaborative national computing environment Foundation (Access) –Australian Access Federation –The Australian Research and Education Network

12 NCRIS: Platforms for CollaborationDr Rhys Francis AeRIC CompositionRole An independent Chair An Executive Director A DEST Principal Adviser 8 members drawn from providers and users of e- Research capabilities The executive director will have a small secretariat to assist programme management Determine strategic directions and variations to components Convene an e-Research community forum to provide advice Review the annual business plans prepared by the Executive Director and PfC components Make recommendations to DEST and NCRIS The Australian eResearch Infrastructure Council

17 The Australian National Data Service Goals: Research infrastructure and data should be accessible: –to a range of users – research community, government, states and territories; and –under controlled, authenticated but simple access regimes. Access should be independent of location – network infrastructure should therefore be robust and reliable Data should be discoverable, accessible, managed and long-lived The effect of the investments by governments and research communities in research and education should be maximised ANDS will: deliver greater access to Australia's research data assets in forms that support easier and more effective data use and re-use

18 NCRIS: Platforms for CollaborationDr Rhys Francis The PMSEIC Data for Science Working Group Suggested a cooperative, Whole of Government approach within a National Strategic Framework Key Recommendations included: –National network of data repositories –Improve sharing and collaboration –Increase skilled workforce for best practice in data management Activities addressing these include: –Research Quality Framework –Australian Access Federation –Accessibility Framework –Australian National Data Services

19 NCRIS: Platforms for CollaborationDr Rhys Francis One map of the space NUMBER SIZE Community agreed data investment; intended for sharing Services: Find Mine Access Authorise Independent research; Data used and retained Collections; Data published, local repositories CRCs MNRFs Centres; Data may be used, shared or published Services: stores, repositories, tools, expertise B C D E F A

20 NCRIS: Platforms for CollaborationDr Rhys Francis InstitutionsResearchersANDS  Develop and implement policy on data ownership  Provide guidelines to researchers on ownership and their responsibilities  Maintain durable records on data held and ensure it is under the control of the institution where the work was performed  Provide secure systems for holding data and for granting access to that data  Determine what data to keep, considering research community practice and project or legal requirements  Ensure research data is retained using institutionally provided mechanisms (5 years)  Ensure that data retention passes to the institution  Keep confidentiality where it exists  Provide utilities needed by the Data Commons  Broker solutions for collections to fast track e ‑ Research development  Build expertise and provide outreach services, ‘training the trainers’  Ensure promulgation and use of simplified legal frameworks and access templates
