_________________________ Jacqueline M. Hughes-Oliver North Carolina State University, Statistics SAMSI CDI Workshop November 1, 2007 Panel on Building Virtual Organizations - Elements of a Virtual Organization - Some critical issues and opportunities - Potential application areas
Nov 1, 20072 Virtual Organization ________________ Members may be geographically separated Connected by computer and other adv. technologies Share resources and skills to achieve goals Members have complementary expertise Focus on change Incorporates best practices Trust between members Typology based on : purpose, place, platform, population interaction structure, profit model
Nov 1, 20073 Critical Issues, Opportunities ___________ Sharing of resources to encourage reproducibility and stimulate discovery within science –Data sharing, even in the face of confidentiality concerns –Sharing software, algorithms, and CPUs –Can address bigger problems as a group Model interrogation and comparison –Model tuning, comparison, and selection –Must be scalable to accommodate large data structures Model interpretation and visualization –Knowledge transfer, utility, and confirmation –Demands intimate cross-disciplinary discussions
Nov 1, 20074 Potential Applications _______________ Classification & Prediction –Theme: From Data to Knowledge –Data mining and dimension reduction –Move away from common criteria of success –Search for and explain rare occurrences Pathway-Based Analysis –Theme: Understanding Complexity in Natural … Systems –Metabolic pathways, genetic pathways, etc. –Uncover complicated interactions and dependencies –Emerging as a very active area of research Share + best practices + trust + complementary expertise
