Enhancing data capture and integration for re-use and data mining
Most experiments are optimised for immediate objectives, with the resulting data interpreted and used only in relation to the experiment from which it originated. However, by implementation of an integrated system with supporting infrastructure, experimental data and metadata can often be preserved in ways that simplify reuse and integration with other experiments. This project will provide infrastructure and training to simplify mechanisms to record experimental results with enhanced data provenance. Culture collection and robotics experiments present a strong opportunity for phase 1 prototyping of a system to be later deployed across the AWRI and, potentially, for use by all Australian grape and wine producers.
