Right, before we dive into summer, we want to inform you of some great new features in DISQOVER.
FAIR is a fairly recent concept that stands for ‛Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable’. On the face of it, these principles don’t seem so remarkable. But what sets it apart, compared to other (earlier) open data models, is that the emphasis has shifted from the human researcher to machines.
In the last few years, the number of public data sources integrated into DISQOVER has grown steadily and we crossed the triple digit barrier in 2016. Nevertheless, the number of data sources on our waiting list for integration is growing just as fast.
One of our missions is to directly and indirectly help patients by aggregating and linking both private and public data. A direct help is to facilitate awareness about health and disease by providing proper information about prevention, diagnosis and treatment, amongst other things.
We are very excited to announce the release of version 3.0 of our DISQOVER platform. After introducing federation in versions 2.x, we succeeded in unlocking a whole new dimension of semantic data in this 3.0 version with the typed links. But wait, there is more! We have also greatly increased usability and flexibility in areas such as discovery management, exporting and dashboards. Can't wait to learn more? Read on!
