Next LHSCollaboratory: Knowledge Grid
Palmer Commons, Great Lakes North Central
Allen Flynn, PharmD, will present "Knowledge Grid: Infrastructure to support Knowledge FAIRness for the LHS"
Much work and many sciences are needed to make knowledge about health more Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable (“FAIR”) than it is today. To achieve a greater measure of health knowledge “FAIRness”, we are pursuing a vision of systematically improved knowledge delivery into practice. Our approach is to develop new infrastructure for knowledge organization, trust-building, and sharing. This new sociotechnical knowledge infrastructure – which includes workflows for people, methods of governance, thoughtful policies, mechanisms to uphold trust, and robust technical system support – is what we call the Knowledge Grid.
For this presentation, a demonstration of the technical components of the Knowledge Grid system being built here at U-M will be followed by an open discussion of the goals of Knowledge FAIRness for better health and potential moves that can be made to approach them.
