2018-09 (Sep) FAIR NYC Chapter Meeting (Mike Radigan, Marta Palanques, Steve Reznik)

There is a concept called "the FAIR state of mind" that those who have adopted the FAIR ontology will reference. I call it "owning FAIR", its when you don't have to think about the model or reference a guide, you can visualize it, have exercised your mind to apply it to complex analysis and it comes naturally to you. It can be a framework for critical thinking, but you may have to relearn how to think. FAIR was not an academic exercise as I have heard some "competitors" say, it was an effort by a practitioner, Jack Jones, to find a credible way to solve a hard problem in a practical, usable fashion. My ice-breaker question to the group on Weds will be "Is FAIR an invention or a discovery?" Give it some thought ...


  • Thanks Mike! On behalf of the Greater NYC Area Chapter, we are very much anticipating your presentation and valuable insights!
