1 Data-Intensive Research: Making better use of Research Data Malcolm Atkinson & David De Roure & 8 December 2009 Report from a fact-finding mission

2 Mission goal: learn how researchers use data 2 Acknowledgements: the UK e-Science Directors CIR authors, our teams, the EPSRC & all our hosts in the USA, they had the good ideas; all the opinions, observations and recommendations are our own.

3 Outline Cornucopia of data Yet to learn how to use it well Hot topic Research to politics Concepts Datascopes, Intellectual Ramps, Going the last mile Co-* Digital ecosystem Principles Recommendations Actions Survival in the Digital Revolution 3

5 Sir Tim Berners-Lee

6 Datascopes for the mind 6 NRAO/AUI/NSF To see things in your data you could never see before Data to Information to Knowledge to Wisdom Changed our place in the universe

7 Example datascopes 7

8 Searching for an expression ≈ OTX1 AND (Pou3f2 OR (Brd4 AND Sim1)) 2903 ≈ 947 AND (1688 OR (1697 AND 3096)) Dmbx1 Match = Slide from Jano van Hemert

9 Intellectual ramps 9 Easy and low risk to start Progress to advanced skills For research data users No obligation Go as far as you want Find a service & relax

10 Dropbox as a Ramp Local folder synchronised and shared via cloud Condor job submitted by drag and drop Ian Cottam Results appear in Dropbox Slide from David De Roure

11 Intuitive interfaces e-Science Research Slide from Jano van Hemert Engineering economic ramps

12 Going the last mile 12

13 Slide from Jano van Hemert

14 Gene Expression Run C C2 Run C C C C6 Run C C C C10 Run C C C C14 Run C C * C * C C C C C C C C C C C C C C C C C * C * C18 Slide from Rob Kitchin

15 Walking a path together 15 co-shaping co-design co-creation co-constitution co-evolution co-construction co-  Finding a niche in the digital ecosystem

16 Alignment of paths to routine use Invention Proof of concept demonstration Local group use Filling a research niche Community use Established but still evolving Widespread and global use de facto standard 16 Competition for mind-share and resources

17 A data-intensive future e-Science Research Slide from Jano van Hemert

18 General Principles Support for research data should be in harmony with the evolving digital-data ecosystem Increase investment in analysing data to be commensurate with that for collecting data Co-evolve research practices with new methods and their supporting software Democratise research by improving education and access Smooth the path from foundational research, through invention and proof of concept to sustained use Expose the costs of computation and data to researchers 18

19 Recommendations Stimulate new thinking and international collaboration Invest and collaborate in creating shared methods and their supporting software for exploring and exploiting digital data Build intellectual ramps to new methods and provide convenient services for routine tasks Invest in the foundations for exploiting research data Develop a smooth path from method invention to their sustained and routine use 19

20 Actions 1.Workshops on DIR 2.DIR education 3.Ideas factory 4.Engage with current best practice 5.Immediate research challenges 6.DIR facilities 7.Boost reference data services 8.Foundational research 9.Green DIR 10.Coordination 20

21 Take home message Survival in the digital-data revolution depends on speed and appropriateness of adaptation 21
