All the data in the world is worth very little if you don't have the proper tools and services to help extract value from the data. Whether for straight statistical analysis, machine learning modeling or visualizations, a strong set of data science tools and services are essential to arrive at practical solutions to pressing data-centric problems and unlock the maximum value from data.
Ocean Protocol aims to incentivize the integration of useful data science tools and services that can be leveraged by community contributors to enable Ocean to function as the "network of service networks” for the New Data Economy.
For inspiration consider:
integrating an existing data science tool to buy & sell data, or publish/consume commons data
integrating an existing IDE for data science. E.g. Azure ML studio or adding asset search box in Ocean’s Manta ray that polls searched assets from Ocean’s Pacific Network.
integrating an existing open data/problems repository. E.g. OpenML with 20,000 datasets and related problems
integrating data engineering tools for building data pipelines on squid-java. E.g. Flume, Nifi, Spark, Flink etc.
or creating an amazing new data science tool that is designed from the ground up for Ocean, perhaps leverage existing tools as building blocks
integrating a popular Web2 services for storage or compute;
integrating "meta" Web2 integrators like Sqoop, Flume, or Oozie
integrating Web3 services for storage or compute or other interesting Web3 services, like a DAO from Aragon or DAOStack or an arbitration service
integrating Google dataset search
Examples of data science tools that are currently integrated on Ocean include Manta Ray, which allows users to set up a JupyterLab Instance to run a Python kernel in a browser to program data science workflows.
Similarly, examples of service integrations currently on Ocean include a service integration to Azure storage.
