Open Datasets at Paris-Saclay
IO Data Science (IO for Input/Output) is a homogenised access to metadata descriptions of datasets via a single point of access. The scientists can declare their datasets as open data or for restricted usage within the university. The machines of scientists can use the SPARQL service to read the metadata of available datasets.
Why homogenised access to metadata descriptions of datasets?
300 laboratories constitute the research potential of the University Paris-Saclay. They cover all scientific disciplines that mobilise some 15,000 scientists, researchers and PhD teachers. These researchers produce more and more data during their works and on the other side, some scientists search new data for their research.
The service IO Data Science will serve to link, discover and reuse the datasets between the producers and the consumers of data for creating new synergies between the laboratories.
