Carl Kesselman, Dean’s Professor of Industrial & Systems Engineering and Director of the Informatics Systems Research Division at USC Information Sciences Institute, presents a webinar titled, “Leveling the Playing Field: Applying FAIR Principles to Your Daily Data Tasks.”
The problem of trying to extract knowledge from large data sets is well publicized. However, with the rapid growth in the number of data collections being created, how to discover and reuse these data become an increasingly important problem. If our data is to be of value to other users (or even ourselves) we need it to be Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable, the so called FAIR principles. In this talk, Dr. Kesselman will introduce the notion of FAIR, describe aspects of data that make it FAIR, and also present software tools that we have developed as part of the BD2K Big Data for Discovery Science Center of Excellence that enable a wide range of users to create and manage FAIR data.
