1. Creating a semantic engine that will help researchers create and use better machine-actionable, reusable, and accessible descriptions and governance for their data, projects, algorithms, tools, workflows, and other digital research outputs.
  2. Collaborating on projects that will enable the federation of data silos. A federation of these silos will require processes that allow data access, authentication, and data transfer standards. These technologies will ensure that data, metadata, and access rights travel with the data from source to destination within the ADC federation.
  3. Developing tools to help researchers with data provenance and traceability. Cryptographically verifiable information about data origin and creation processes will allow researchers to transform data, audit and evaluate the quality of and trust in data, model authenticity, and implement access control for derived data.
  4. Creating a culture of FAIR data by developing knowledge-sharing resources such as webinars, training, and teaching materials. ADC works with partners to align our approaches and contribute to the global research community.
