What do sea otters eat?
... is a surprisingly hard question to answer.
Why?
Data is hard to access due to cultural reasons.
Ecologists (and their institutions) are still catching
up to embrace open-data science as a way to
accelerate ecological research.

Global Biotic Interactions
... is many things
data normalization tool (in java/neo4j)
online graph database (neo4j)
online rdf/triple store (apache jena)
various data archives (DwC, ttl/rdf)
apis /libs (web api, R, javascript)
open data + open source = a community of folks
that share and use interaction data

Editor's Notes

  1. Introduction We found that species interaction data was hard to discover and access, so we built a platform and community to help achieve that.
  2. What are species interactions? What do sea otters eat? ... an easy question, but hard to answer because observation records are mostly offline, unlinked and siloed.
  3. .
  4. .
  5. Introducting Global Biotic Interactions . . . rebuilt daily from federated datasets links taxonomies, ontologies, references provides data apis, libraries and archives open collaboration model (GitHub) preliminary results => detected numerous data errors; stimulate ontology development; stimulates research collaboration; used in at least two ongoing academic research projects (Brian Hayden, Stephen Gosnell)
  6. Learning about Sea otters demo (5 minutes) (discovery) lookup Enhydra in http://globalbioticinteractions.org click on crab (Cancer) to go to http://eol.org in data tab, click on Enhydra and to go to iNaturalist (research) in R look for all Enhydra prey in Cypher go to what do humans eat? change the name into Enhydra after poking around, copy / paste the query in R, do rglobi::query("...") (archive) save results to csv open in open office (collaborate) show references.html click on data tab different formats.
