PSDI Interaction with AI Hubs
PSDI aims to provide a connecting layer that enables sharing of data across different data infrastructures. As such it could also provide a platform that supports data management for the AI Hubs. A high-level view of how this might work is show in the following diagram. The purpose of the AI Hubs meeting held in May 2023 was to explore whether this is a workable approach and how this idea could be made more specific.
In response to this invitation PSDI received replies from 19 of the 31 proposals, including all 12 of the science and engineering proposals, 4 of the foundations proposals, and 3 of the real data proposals. This demonstrated a high level of interest and engagement from the AI Hubs, particularly within PSDI’s focus area of the Physical Sciences. A meeting was held on 2nd May with 31 people in attendance, representing 17 of the Hub proposals.
A document containing a summary of the meeting was produced, including the discussions raised in the meeting and how this relates to the PSDI activities. A draft version of this summary is available for download, and will be updated following any comments from the participants.
