    1. 1. Adapted from a talk by... Carole Goble University of Manchester, UK
    2. 2. FaceBook for Workflow e-Scientists myexperiment.org
    3. 3. myExperiment.org <ul><li>A community social network </li></ul><ul><li>A market place </li></ul><ul><li>A gateway to other publishing environments </li></ul><ul><li>A platform for launching workflows </li></ul><ul><li>Encapsulated myExperiment Objects </li></ul><ul><li>Mindful publication </li></ul>
    4. 4. Who is it by and for? <ul><li>Young people. </li></ul><ul><li>With “MTV” thinking. </li></ul><ul><li>Familiar with games. </li></ul><ul><li>And shopping. </li></ul><ul><li>And social networks. </li></ul><ul><li>Make our tools like these. </li></ul><ul><li>Say NO to 1970s interfaces </li></ul><ul><li>Say NO to restrictive tooling </li></ul>
    5. 5. Principles <ul><li>Focus on making it easy to publish information </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Discovering and sharing experimental artefacts </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Publishing results to standard community repositories </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Publishing scholarly output </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Familiar social networking / web paradigms </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Keeping it free and fluid and creative. Me-Science. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Crossing system boundaries </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Trans-workflow </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Crossing discipline boundaries </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Multi-disciplinary, Inter-disciplinary, Trans-disciplinary </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Clustering expertise </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Intellectual fusion outside discipline. We-Science. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Life Science, Social Science, Astronomy, Chemistry </li></ul></ul>26/2/2007 | myExperiment | Slide
    6. 6. Social Space & Shop: Semantic Challenge <ul><li>Shopping for Workflows, Services Components. Aggregating workflows and provenance. Fuel for diagnostics. Find a similar workflow. </li></ul><ul><li>Organised metadata </li></ul><ul><li>Identity and Ontology Authority </li></ul><ul><li>Open tagging, folksonomies, blogging, profiles, recommendations, social network analysis e-tracking </li></ul>
    7. 7. webTaverna GUI - main
    8. 8. Warehouse or Federation <ul><li>Community web site? </li></ul><ul><li>Distributed stores? </li></ul><ul><li>Mixed identity regimes </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Identity authority </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Multiple my Experiments </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Publish what I want when I want. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Open Archives Initiative </li></ul>
    9. 9. Portals, wikis and community repositories
    10. 10. Science is not Pop Music Scientists are not Schoolgirls <ul><li>OpenWetWare is open </li></ul><ul><li>Some Rights Reserved. Protection as well as sharing. </li></ul><ul><li>Curation and Policing. Quality, Reliability, Validation, Safety, Persistence, Longevity, Palpability? </li></ul><ul><li>Pollution and viral infections. </li></ul><ul><li>Privacy, IP, Authorship attribution and guarantees. </li></ul><ul><li>Provenance can help. </li></ul><ul><li>In-house results mixed with community resources. </li></ul><ul><li>Maximum ease of sharing to achieve collective benefits – so workflows are &quot;hackable&quot; and &quot;remixable&quot;. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>When does your workflow stop being your workflow? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>“ Hell is other people’s workflows” (as Jean Paul Sartre might have said) </li></ul>
    11. 11. <ul><ul><li>Small labs or individuals </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Specialist workflows </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Expert and inexpert </li></ul></ul>Leveraging and Serving The Long Tail of Users <ul><ul><li>Big labs & big groups </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Common de facto workflows </li></ul></ul>
    12. 12. Users Add Value <ul><li>Adoption depends on lots of shared services and lots of shared workflows </li></ul><ul><li>Incentive models for Scientists to share? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Fame, reputation and funding. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Not being second; not being misrepresented. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Add value to my service / application </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Get my tool / codes / dataset used </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Collaborate to compete. Good citizenship. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Authorship recognition and credit. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Protect my turf </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The Selfish Scientist – e-Science is me-Science </li></ul>
    13. 13. From me-Science to we-Science <ul><li>Tribal bonding and sharing </li></ul><ul><li>Crossing Tribal Boundaries </li></ul><ul><li>Across communities and disciplines (MIT) </li></ul><ul><li>“ Intellectual Fusion” & “Swarming” </li></ul><ul><li>Understanding outside my expertise. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>E.g. sources of error </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Serious metadata issues. </li></ul><ul><li>Serious social issues. </li></ul>
    14. 14. Technical Challenges <ul><li>Workflow warehouse / federation of repositories Open Archives Initiative. Federated myExperiments. Sharepoint. </li></ul><ul><li>Social space + organised rich site Social discourse + organised service / workflow space using curated semantics. </li></ul><ul><li>Granularity and identifiers Rolling-up provenance. Id resolution </li></ul><ul><li>Open vs protected content Quality, Reliability, Validation, Safety, Intellectual Property, Ownership, Secrecy, A duty of guardianship. Curation? Policing? Local data mixed with shared resources </li></ul><ul><li>Desktop integration Google gadgets for workflows. Interacting with workflows through Office products. </li></ul><ul><li>Workflow execution (WHIP) Workflows Hosted in Portals project </li></ul><ul><li>Socialisation of communities </li></ul><ul><li>Enabling Scientists added value through applications and collaborative tagging </li></ul>©
