ScienceDesk participated at the International Conference on Caloric Cooling in Darmstadt between 16th and 20th September. We showed how to translate research data from caloric cooling approaches and thermomagnetic energy conversion into digital research data.
Together with the other sponsors and exhibitors, such as Toyota, evico magnetics, and Fraunhofer ISC, we discovered promising research ideas and vivid discussions. We would like to thank Prof. Dr. Oliver Gutfleisch and his team from Technische Universität Darmstadt for the opportunity and all visitors for the interesting talks.
Here is what you can expect: “Platforms for science tend to replicate paper-based documentation and folder-based organization on the computer screen. The scientific process, from data acquisition to publication, could be greatly improved by recent advances in network theory, artificial intelligence and data mining. Stepping in this direction, we created a scientific database system where the experimental data is homogenized and deep-indexed. This allows the autonomous exploration of data to identify numeric features and correlations in large material datasets. ScienceDesk’s final goal is to create a friendly environment for data ingestion into research cycles, where correlated data, samples, experiments and articles can be efficiently retrieved.”
The recent issue of the dresden I exists blog deals with the ScienceDesk solution for research data management and the team behind the company. Find out more about our business idea and its realization, challenges and tips for start-ups, and what support is helpful along the way.
Dr. Carlos Viol Barbosa, the CEO of ScienceDesk, is sharing his thoughts about “How to Better Apply New Digital Technology in Science” at Medium.
As a short summary: Software developers need to establish closer contact with scientists from different fields. Platforms should be designed to take into account the actual needs of the scientists on the lab floor. Investors need to take note of the strong demand for data management solutions in areas other than the life sciences, including, for example, the material sciences. We mustn’t be afraid to try out creative solutions. Let’s bring all scientists into the 21st century.
