  • “beyond borders” @wilbanks 08 june 2014 vancouver
  • we’re way past old information borders.
  • thought experiment…
  • 1992
  • “a group of volunteers connected by a global computer network will build for free and give away an encyclopedia that displaces Britannica”

  • 1. when borders shift, so do epistemologies.
  • cheap data changes how we justify our opinions.
  • OPS = AB(H + BB + HBP) + TB(AB + BB + SF + HBP) / AB(AB + BB + SF + HBP)
  • cheap data is changing our politics.
  • cheap data is going to change our health.

  • but what actually needs to be done day to day?
  • store content organize content query content
  • store content organize content query content
  • store content organize content query content
  • meet the new boss?
  • 2. we don’t even have a map for what data is doing.

  • cheap data transgresses lots of things we expect… but haven’t ever been guaranteed.
  • privacy.
  • property.
  • exclusivity.

  • authority.
  • 3. borders and maps for data don’t yet exist. but they are forming.
  • and the valuable ones are forming across disciplines.
  • “compatible communication” is the real key.
  • small but compatibly communicating groups can create asymmetrically valuable resources.
  • small group sharing
  • proven to work in: software content
  • let’s try a small but compatibly communicating test in breast cancer.
  • code sharing a prerequisite.
  • accuracy of model jumped three orders of magnitude in nine days.
  • 48 76% accurate.
  • 21 february 2013 17 april 2013 ongoing...
  • SHOW ME THE CODE!

  • let’s try a small but compatibly communicating group in big science.
  • 68core projects
  • 1070datasets
  • 1723results
  • 18papers in press
  • 9 months of compatible communication
  • let’s try it with my personal genomic data.
  • “eat less and exercise”
  • volunteer must click to proceed all boxes must be checked

  • “Also there is no suggestion of consanguinity in your pedigree.” ! http://www.ianlogan.co.uk/
  • (the compatible communication is conspicuously absent)
  • compatible communication requires standards.
  • three historically proven methods for compatible communication.
  • a. incrementalism.
  • b. the cartel.
  • c. open standards.
  • 81
  • what’s the value of any measurement when we can measure everything?
  • joy’s law is truer than ever.
  • the value is in the compatible communication.
  • thank you ! @wilbanks john.wilbanks@sagebase.org
