Computer Science Department Seminar, EPFL, Switzerland
A critical element of Open Science is open access to research data and code. Successful implementation of widely used solutions for sharing open data must combine technology, standards, and incentives. For the last 15 years, the Dataverse project has focused on these three aspects to enhance research data sharing and enable access to tens of thousands of research datasets around the word. Currently, the Dataverse project is working to add two crucial components to continue supporting open science: 1) sharing code associated with the data and reproducible packages to verify scientific results, and 2) standardized data policies and differential privacy features to enable sharing and analysis of sensitive data. This talk will summarize the achievements made so far and outline the future improvements.
