Panel Organized by: Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada / Conseil de recherches en sciences naturelles et en génie

Researchers and granting councils are facing a growing deluge of data, which creates both challenges and opportunities. This interactive panel will engage different perspectives on the future of research data analytics and on how new technologies like artificial intelligence can be leveraged to visualize dynamic research ecosystems. What data gaps remain, and how can diverse data sources be pooled to be inclusive of diverse researchers and research outputs? NSERC is interested in better understanding the Canadian research landscape, to identify gaps and overlaps, as well as to ensure that emerging disciplines are not lost in the cracks between disciplinary silos.

Les chercheur(e)s et organismes subventionnaires font face à un déluge de données, ce qui crée des défis et des opportunités. Ce panel interactif abordera différentes perspectives sur l'avenir defis;analyse de données de recherche et l’exploitation des nouvelles technologies telles que intelligence artificielle pour visualiser des écosystèmes de recherche dynamiques. Quelles sont les lacunes dans les données et
comment être inclusif de tous les chercheur(e)s et produits de recherche? Le CRSNG souhaite mieux comprendre l’environnement de la recherche au Canada, pour cerner les lacunes et veiller à ce que les disciplines émergentes ne se perdent pas entre les silos disciplinaires.
