Our upcoming CODATA / DDI training webinar ‘The DDI Standards and Technology: Adapting to Change‘ will take place today, Tuesday 17 October at 1000 EDT / 1400 UTC / 1600 CEST. The event will last approximately 90 minutes.
The technology landscape is always changing, and with the advent of AI technologies the pace has increased. This webinar looks at the technologies and practices around DDI metadata today, and how the new technologies could be used to increase efficiencies in the work of documenting data and in the use of the data itself. There will be time for questions and answers.
Current examples of production flows for metadata will be shown, covering the DDI Codebook and DDI Lifecycle standards, and the possibilities for leveraging ChatGPT and similar AI technologies will be demonstrated. The webinar is intended for data managers and disseminators concerned with documenting data and producing metadata at scale.
Our speakers are:
- DDI and Technology Evolution (from DTDs for documentation to metadata-driven systems – brief overview) (Arofan Gregory, DDI/CODATA)
- Production of DDI Codebook metadata for ODESI (Alex Cooper, Data Services Coordinator at Queen’s University)
- Production of DDI Lifecycle at the National Archive of Computerized Data on Aging (NACDA) (Jennifer Zeiger, Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research)
- ChatGPT and Metadata – possible uses and enhancements in efficiency (Pascal Heus, AI / Data Lead and FAIR Open Data APIs advocate, Postman Open Technologies)
