Marketing and Communications, April 10, 2014 — The Texas A&M University Libraries is preparing to launch VIVO, a web-based community of research profiles to enhance faculty collaboration. By providing standard research profiles for all university faculty and graduate students, researchers can discover and contact individuals with similar interests whether they are across campus or at another VIVO institution. The data entry and standardization will continue through the summer with the VIVO debut planned for Open Access Week in October 2014.  Read more

RPI President Calls for Improved Data Analytics, Connectivity

RPI

According to a recent article out of RPI, “Universities must make new and innovative connections to harness the full power and potential of this data-driven era, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute President Shirley Ann Jackson said [Tuesday] in a keynote address at the Internet2 Global Summit in Denver, Colorado. Deriving ‘insights from the massive amounts of web-based data that humanity is producing about itself, during the ordinary course of every day…. may be the greatest intellectual challenge and opportunity we all face in academic life,’ President Jackson told the gathering of academic, business, and government leaders in the arena of information technology. ‘Today, we analyze less than 1 percent of the data we capture, even though the answers to many of the great global challenges lie within this overabundant natural resource,’ Jackson said. The challenge, she notes, is finding new ways to address the volume, velocity, variety, and veracity of the data.” Read more

What Collaboration is Achieving at ResearchGate

Research Gate

Leena Rao of TechCrunch recently wrote, “It’s not often you come across a founder that measures startup success by winning the Nobel Peace Prize one day. When ResearchGate [see our previous coverage] founder Ijad Madisch said that to Benchmark partner Matt Cohler a few years ago, he knew that his startup, which has developed a communication and crowdsourcing platform by which scientists can share and publish their research, was going to potentially change the way we solve real world problems with scientific collaboration. Flash forward two years, and Berlin-based ResearchGate is actually seeing progress being made in areas like disease, terrorism and more from collaborations and shared knowledge taking place on its platform.”

Rao continues, “One of the major challenges to plague scientific research and innovation is redundancy. A team of scientists hard at work on protein data analysis publish their results only to learn that a group on the opposite side of the world has just done the same. The collaborative web changes this. As both a physician and a researcher, Madisch decided that the best way to reduce research redundancy would be to create an online professional network in which scientists could easily share data, information and results.”

TechCrunch’s description of the company states, “ResearchGate is the leading social network for scientists. It offers tools and applications for researchers to interact and collaborate. ResearchGate offers a social, crowdsourced platform designed for researchers. The platform provides a global scientific web-based environment in which scientists can interact, exchange knowledge and collaborate with researchers of different fields. The results of ResearchGate’s new search engine, called ReFind, are not merely based on keywords, but selected in an intelligent way based on semantic, contextual correlations.”

Boosting Collaboration with Semantic Search

Christian Buckley of Business2Community recently wrote, “Search is critical to every enterprise collaboration platform. Whether it be a structured enterprise collaboration management (ECM) platform, our email system, or even our burgeoning social networking tools, information workers increasingly rely on these systems of record to help them connect, relate and communicate. Some of their features make communication with geographically remote partners and peers almost seamless, as if they were right across the hall. Yet, the best social or content management features in the world cannot make up for the fact that search, for most organizations, is fundamentally broken. The ties between search and collaboration are simple: if you can’t find your data or content, collaboration will be limited. How can you collaborate if you cannot correlate the dialogue with your content?” Read more

$35M from Bill Gates and Others Given to ResearchGate

Rip Empson of TechCrunch reports, “Ijad Madisch started ResearchGate in 2008 to change the scientific method, and depending on where you sit, that either is or isn’t as ambitious as it sounds. Madisch isn’t on a crusade to overturn the techniques scientists use to investigate and systematically observe phenomena, so much as the tools… One of the biggest problems to plague scientific research, innovation and breakthroughs is redundancy. A team of scientists hard at work on protein data analysis publish their results only to learn that a group on the opposite side of the world has just done the same. As both a physician and a researcher, Madisch decided that the best way to reduce research redundancy would be to create an online professional network in which scientists could easily share data, information and results. Research would become more effective, and science would be better for it.” Read more

Fujitsu, DERI Set to Unveil Details of Linked Data Interface

Carmel Doyle of Silicon Republic recently covered some exciting developments that have arisen from the recent collaboration between Fujitsu Labs and DERI: “This week, Fujitsu is presenting the first results from its research collaboration with DERI at the XBRL26 conference taking place in Dublin. Speaking this afternoon, Fujitsu Ireland’s head of research Anthony McCauley said the team has been pioneering an interface that sits on linked data. ‘We’ve been looking at that not just from a research perspective but also in terms of the real commercial opportunities that linked data can provide,’ he said.”

Doyle continues, “The big challenge at the moment for data miners is that data sets are dispersed in different locations. Read more
