  • Evangelist for libertarianism and optical networks
  • For example in genomics
  • Many in this room are probably users of Dropbox or similar services for keeping their files synced across multiple machinesWell, the scientific research equivalent is a little different
  • We figured it needs to allow a group of collaborating researchers to do many or all of these things with their data ……and not just the 2GB of powerpoints…or the 100GB of family photos and videos….but the petabytes and exabytes of data that will soon be the norm for many

    2. 2. computationinstitute.org “When the network is as fast as the computer’s internal links, the machine disintegrates across the net into a set of special purpose appliances” (George Gilder, 2001)
    3. 3. computationinstitute.org
    4. 4. computationinstitute.org A time of disruptive change As evidenced by cost per human genome
    5. 5. computationinstitute.org We asked ourselves: What if the research work flow could be managed as easily as… …our pictures …home entertainment …our e-mail
    6. 6. computationinstitute.org We aspire (initially) to create a great user experience for research data management What would a “dropbox for science” look like?
