As part of the IEA Wind Task 43 Metadata Challenge, we run a series of public webinars that aim to improve collaboration between Knowledge Engineering experts and domain experts in the area of wind energy. This time, we are joined by Gavin Chait, Lead Data Scientist at Whythawk, in this exciting webinar as he shares his experiences in the development of a commercial location database that has been curated from over 20 million records in England and Wales. Gavin will discuss the challenges faced in restructuring source data that was never intended for research use and the creation of Enqwyre, an open-source software and app that solves these challenges. With Enqwyre, research data collaboration, recovery of non-interoperable data into machine-readable formats, and assurance of source data provenance are now possible.
During the webinar, Gavin will share the roadmap and launch features of Enqwyre and is eager to hear feedback and suggestions from attendees. This webinar is a must-attend for researchers looking for a solution to data restructuring and collaboration. Don't miss this opportunity to learn from the expert and be a part of the future of metadata research. Register now!
