FilteredPush Team Meeting 2013 Feb 06

Present: David, Maureen, Paul, James, Jim, Heather, Tianhong, Bertram, Sven, Ed Gilbert, Gil Nelson.

  • Knowledge/Interests implementation demonstration.

Demostration of a view of harvested taxon heirarchy data, the expression of an interest (in the annotation processor) on a family, creation of a determination using a generic name (in symbiota), and presentation of the annotation to the interest (in the annotation processor).

  • Annotations
    • Progress on: Rewrititing dwcFP

Discussing how to use parentNameUsageID.

Maureen has raised issue of new term for taxonomic authority for trees.

  • Embedded Kepler
    • Progress on embedded QC job.

A piece of Lei's original workflow is running in embedded Kepler, using the EJB approach. Workaround for build system issue - actors were written to invoke build system, rewriting them to not invoke build system objects.

CurationConfigurationType?

As we have additional actors to add to the workflow, we'll need to modify them to remove this dependency.

    • Work needed on actors to interact with current FP APIs.

- loading data, creating annotations, putting back data into FP.. ! That's it. Actor to query knowledge API, refactoring actor for generation of Annotations to use FP Access point API (for which David has lots of helper code available), storage of results (data and provenance documents), from the run of a workflow in a place UseCases are bulk QC of harvested data. Sven: Current data source - csv file -> actor that can query knowlege API for data (and then load into Comad objects). Put this on agenda for Friday. - how to query harvested occurance data. Non-Tech

  • Increasing Burn Rate.
    • Report from Jim and Paul

Reviewed meeting with finanical folks about increasing burn rate.

Consensus: start working on spending down at harvard, wait for a bit before deciding on UCDavis, focus on protecting core staff for as long as possible.

  • Prospective meetings, development targets, ApplePie
    • OA West coast (will pay expenses of the presenter). Looking for demonstration and higher level technical details of what works and doesn't with OA.
    • OA East coast. (essentially same presentation - two sessions for convenience).
    • Semantics in biodiversity.(opportunity to develop for publication).
    • SPNHC ( [2] ) ApplePie
    • TDWG (late October) http://www.tdwg.org/homepage-news-item/article/tdwg-2013-call-for-symposia-and-workshops/
    • CNH: meeting will include NEVP. Good to workshop to get feedback from the botanists present. In Vermont, July (perhaps late June)? ApplePie

James: Discussed with Patrick, sounds favorable towards it.

  • Annotations
    • Annotation MS
    • Task Group for Applicability Statement on OA
  • Collaborations
    • Specify/Symbiota
    • SCAN TCN
    • NEVP TCN
    • Annosys MS

James: Merged James+Bob corrections, wrote to Walter. Seeing him next week.
