  6. 6. Triples = ‘factoids’<br />6<br />Inhibits<br />
  7. 7. Factoids as mini-publications<br />7<br />Stated by<br />
  8. 8. What is CWA?<br />A Forum: to unite stakeholders to share complex Life Science data in a new way, through triples.<br />A Facilitator: to promote the development of triple content services and promote the development of triple professional services.<br />A Facility: A “warehouse”, distributor and agent for triples on behalf of contributors and users. Develop our own services.<br />

  10. 10. Start Small. Incremental Value. One thing well.Triples. Triples. Triples.<br />Jam today. More Jam Tomorrow.<br />
  11. 11. Some initial ideas<br />Focus on what we talk about<br />Focus on factoids<br />Machine readable for use in our applications<br />Bottom-up standardization / certification<br />11<br />
  12. 12. Where significant value is added…suggestions<br />…triples represent an economic value and can be charged for<br />Curated triples: <br />charges at the discretion of the curator<br />Inferred triples: <br />charges at the discretion of the inferrer<br />Disambiguated triples: <br />charges at the discretion of disambiguator<br />Redundancy-removed triples: <br />charges at the discretion of the redundancy remover<br />Observed triples <br />can be charged for if they are taken from proprietary sources – by or on behalf of the proprietors<br />peer-reviewed literature: charges at the discretion of the rights-holder<br />

  24. 24. Participation on the journey…<br />Organisation governs community driven creation of concept web<br />Think about:<br />Is the CWA useful to you / your organisation?<br />Would you subscribe? <br />Why? / Why not?<br />How would you like to participate? <br />Would you help us develop the Alliance?<br />You rule!<br />
