  • Using e-Infrastructures for Biodiversity Conservation
    Using e-Infrastructures for Biodiversity Conservation Gianpaolo Coro, CNR-ISTI & BlueBRIDGE consortium May 30 2017 9:00 am UTC 75 mins
    An e-Infrastructure is a distributed network of service nodes, residing on multiple sites and managed by one or more organizations. E-Infrastructures allow scientists residing at distant places to collaborate. They offer a multiplicity of facilities as-a-service, supporting data sharing and usage at different levels of abstraction, e.g. data transfer, data harmonization, data processing workflows etc. e-Infrastructures are gaining an important place in the field of biodiversity conservation. Their computational capabilities help scientists to reuse models, obtain results in shorter time and share these results with other colleagues. They are also used to access several and heterogeneous biodiversity catalogues. This webinar will focus on how the BlueBRIDGE e-Infrastructure and Virtual Research Environments can enable data sharing and experiments reproducibility and repeatability in the biodiverisity conservation field. Examples of tools that can be adopted by the audience will be also showcased. Webinar contents in brief:

    e-Infrastructures and Virtual Research Environments
    Geospatial data visualization and representation
    Statistical models for species distribution modelling
    Accessing large heterogeneous biodiversity data catalogues
    Signal processing of biodiversity-related observations
    Machine Learning applied to species observation records
    Lexical search in large taxonomic trees
    Cloud computing applied to biodiversity analyses
