Metadata Questions to Consider

  1. What metadata, and what kinds of metadata management, are needed to enable re-use of data, both across domains and across silos within domains?
  2. How can we incentivize researchers and providers to curate their data, organize it with useful metadata, and make it publicly available?
  3. Maximum impact of data occurs when analytics make use of all available relevant data; how can analytics developers be challenged to make this standard practice?
  4. What are the data ownership and personal identifiable information issues (obstacles/solutions) that can be addressed in this context?
  5. What are the top two data/metadata problems you would like to solve?
