Advancing Cyberinfrastructure through Metadata Research (Jane Greenberg)

April 4, 2014

Ongoing national and global cyberinfrastructure initiatives pose significant information organization challenges. Research targeting metadata helps address these challenges. This presentation covers a set of studies investigating technical, conceptual, and semantic-driven metadata solutions for organizing the deluge of digital data. The presentation introduces the Dryad data repository and the HIVE ontology environment; outlines motivating research questions and methods; and highlights key findings to date, noting the wider implications of this work. Further, I will describe new research emphases, including work as a Data Science Fellow at the National Consortium for Data Science, in affiliation with the Renaissance Computing Institute in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I conclude by discussing how research focusing on metadata is an integral component of information organization and integrates with the I School environment.
