Keynote: Open Science, Open Data, Open Source

A session at TransferSummit 2011

  • Tony Hey

Thursday 8th September, 2011

2:10pm to 2:50pm (GMT)

This talk will examine the implications of the current explosion of scientific data, the challenges of data-centric collaboration, and the need for new and more powerful tools to visualize and explore this data. We begin with a survey of some of the open source tools that Microsoft Research is creating in collaboration with the scientific community and are donating the Outercurve Foundation, an open source foundation supported by Microsoft. The combination of open tools and services with open data is leading to major opportunities for new ways of organizing and exploring data, and hold great promise for delivering scientific discoveries in new and exciting ways.
