To encourage and support researchers to make their study data more accessible, the Mobilize Center is developing data-sharing communities. Through these communities, we seek to understand and overcome barriers to data sharing. Our specific goals for the data communities we create are to:
- Provide useful benchmarks to accelerate algorithm development
- Facilitate the aggregation of data to conduct analyses with greater statistical power, and
- Provide a foundation for machine-learning-based predictive modeling
We hope that the infrastructure we develop for this community will serve as an example for other similar efforts and are eager to assist others in developing data-sharing communities. If you’re interested in participating in a data-sharing community, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
