Building a network library
Libraries provide a way for knowledge to be structured and made available to all. As datasets become as important as books how will a library make it possible to find all the datasets? We will present and demo an implementation of a network library using hypertrie.
Librarians invented ways to describe knowledge, initially for books and manuscript and created structures to describe the content that are shared openly. In a digital age libraries need to structure knowledge of images, video, code and datasets etc. These come from many authors and on a daily volume hard for humans to keep pace with. Inspired by projects like https://www.researchobject.org/ how would such thinking work on peer to peer infrastructure? We will demonstrate working code of a network library ( https://youtu.be/N-Ak9mvmZZM ) that creates a set of 'smart' reference contracts that describe datatypes, computations, visualizations and modules that allow for the creation of network experiments.
