Information Management & Data Curation

Data Curation is Key in our world overloaded with unprecedented Data creation.

unstructured   Digital Information created

How to make sense, sort and organize all these data? This is strategic for all in the wired Knowledge society.

This has been well studied and documented by information scientists and specialist for the realization of complex systems. It can be extended to most information systems, platform and collaboration ecosystem : Open data Curation, Big data visualization, Creative commons, massive scale collaboration , collective problem solving….

Data Curation – Linked data – Knowledge Management

Data need to be contextualized and understood to be linked an curated optimally.

Step by step approach: the different stage of Data Curation Explained, inpired by Maslow’s Pyramid of Human needs

Maslow Pyramidmaslow 2

Maslow’s pyramid of Human needs Can Be applied to data Curation , to generate virtuous spiral of data curation,( content creation, data linkng, data contextualization,  data Visualization Interaction,decision making leading to action)

Just Like Maslow Explained that needs need to be fulfilled step by step, Data Curation much follow such step to ensure Value Creation , in a Virtuous Circle. in 3 Stages:

Stage 1 :   RAW Data Curation (objective/scientific/material criterias)

Create, Collect verify a data (is a true data? Does it Exist? is is an accurate Data? is It Consistent data?

the Data then curated once becomes an information , that can be stored, dat stamped , archived

 Stage 2:   Contextualization/ qualification (Subjectivisation):

What does it mean? is it important information? is it relevant? what context does it belongs to? Important or useless Information? What does it refer, relate to?  Once curated the Information can start to be linked, exchanged…

Stage 3 :  Linking, exchange, visualization . Decision making Inter-action, change: : Information becomes Knowledge, idea creation

The importance of the Feedback Loop come into place  In a complex system of Interaction. (see the work of  Joel de Rosnay, the Macroscpe 1979)

Virtuous spiral

Once these principles are implemented , controlled in a open collaborative way  the P2P and block chain seems perfect for that purpose) then many ecosystems with specific purpose of Goals can be created, collective problem solving can be implemented ….BIG data predictive analytic…

This can lead to the emergence of crowd collaboration and rapid raise of collective consciousness!
