Presenters: Peter Cornwell (ESN-Lyon), Don Brower (University of Notre Dame), Nikola Vasiljevic (DTU), Gretchen Greene (NIST), Eric Decker (University of Basel) and Paula Martinez Lavanchy (TU Delft)
This is the first online seminar of the series organized by the IG RDMinEng called: "Exploring annotation and metadata initiatives for engineering data". This Joint online seminar with the IG Preservation, Tools, Technologies and Policies (IG-PTTP) and co-organized with Europa Institute Basel, reviews current applications of scientific annotation together with infrastructure and standards for sharing and preserving annotation metadata.
Building on RDA work from Plenary-11 and a birds-of-a-feather meeting at P-12, case studies in multiple sectors, from biodiversity to the humanities and experimental physics have been developed by Preservation Tools technologies and Policies (PTTP) IG. Annotation dataset support developed in a collaboration with CERN's Zenodo operating group group was announced at P-13, and a preliminary Fedora implementation demonstrated at Notre Dame (IN, U.S). An engineering data annotation pilot project was developed collaboratively between PTTP and RDM-Engineering IG and presented at P-14.
This seminar reviews different annotation paradigms and tools already in widespread use in multiple sectors and, significantly, recent progress with infrastructure for re-use of annotations across multiple disciplines. Using annotation case studies developed over the last five years, workflows supporting manual annotation by researchers as well as automated approaches using language analysis software and neural networks are presented.
Opening the seminar for contribution by participants, IG-PTTP and IG-RDMinEng propose creating a new tier of projects to examine and test engineering applications of annotation. Engineering datasets from practice are required for this, and the seminar aims to create a forum for identifying and refining data and defining and implementing projects for which the IGs will assist with fund-raising.
