The OpenAIRE Datathon
Description:

The OpenAIRE datathon aims at stimulating developers and data scientists at analysing the OpenAIRE Information Space with the intent of improving its consumption by users and third-party services. The OpenAIRE information space consists of a scholarly communication graph interlinking publications, datasets, software, research organizations, funders, and projects. The graph is the result of harvesting metadata from around 3000 data providers, harmonizing such metadata, and keeping or inferring links between graph objects described by such metadata.

FAT* Conference
Description:

Algorithmic systems are being adopted in a growing number of contexts. Fueled by big data, these systems filter, sort, score, recommend, personalize, and otherwise shape human experiences of socio-technical systems. Although these systems bring myriad benefits, they also contain inherent risks, such as codifying and entrenching biases; reducing accountability and hindering due process; and increasing the information assymmetry between data producers and data holders.

CONSORTIUM


Our expedition team: 12 research institutions from 7 countries (Italy, UK, Germany, Estonia, Finland, The Netherlands, and Switzerland).
