Data observatories: decentralised data and interdisciplinary research
Sharing data and observations has been at the centre of academic discourse for centuries. The Internet has enabled new promising methods of sharing, introducing a number of challenges. This paper discusses the concept of data observatories as decentralised platforms for sharing data and observations, and outlines a reference architecture for their deployment. It argues that decentralisation has been a necessity for interdisciplinary research and that it will benefit data-driven innovation beyond academia. It concludes with discussion on the necessary conditions of decentralisation and literacy for innovation and wider engagement in academic discourse.

Abstract

Sharing data and observations has been at the centre of academic discourse for centuries. The Internet has enabled new promising methods of sharing, introducing a number of challenges. This paper discusses the concept of data observatories as decentralised platforms for sharing data and observations, and outlines a reference architecture for their deployment. It argues that decentralisation has been a necessity for interdisciplinary research and that it will benefit data-driven innovation beyond academia. It concludes with discussion on the necessary conditions of decentralisation and literacy for innovation and wider engagement in academic discourse.
