The U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) has published the Open Knowledge Network Roadmap – Powering the Next Data Revolution report that outlines a strategy for “establishing an open and accessible national resource to power 21st century data science and next-generation artificial intelligence.” The report is the outcome of the “Open Knowledge Network Innovation Sprint,” organized by NSF with support from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), that took place earlier this year and included more than 150 stakeholders from government, academia, industry and the nonprofit sector.

I attended today’s rollout event, which was in meeting format via Zoom and included numerous stakeholders; there was tremendous energy around next steps for building the OPN, bringing in partners, and engaging communities.
