Increase public interest for datasets by
by linking them to relevant social media comments.
We are bulding a platform where it will be easy to find data
to illustrate arguments and reasonment on many topics
WHAT PROBLEM IS YOUR PROJECT SOLVING
Our main goal is to improve discoverability of datasets.
Datasets are the raw materials for analysts to make decisions.
But except for a small subset of professionals, who can spend days
thinking about what they could do with a particular dataset,
Most people, outside of a few use cases, cannot guess the usefulness of a new dataset nor value it.
What we mean to do is to build bridges between datasets and social media, that add a semantic layer around datasets and makes it easier of an analyst to imagine what she could do with it.
An interesting part of what happens on social media ( twitter, reddit, hacker news ) ,
are debates on various topics. Some of the arguments made in those debates
are quantitative and can be backed by data.
We will foster the addition of data to online debates by making a platform to fact-check
debates with data. It will works in two step. The first step is to identify weakly backed
arguments and to request a link to data analysis to strongarm them.
In a second step we will add relevant datasets, every time we can find one on ocean marketplace. To do that we have to develop a set of algorthms that use the description of a dataset to to find matches with debates and arguments identified on the platform.
Akin to finding the nearest conversation in a meaning graph.
Here is an example of how a user can get introduced to a new dataset by reading an answer to a request:
HOW DOES THE PROJECT DRIVE VALUE FOR OCEAN PROTOCOL
By building the habit of checking the data on anything that get argued online,
we increase the total market of consumers for the datasets hosted on Ocean Protocol
and entice potential data providers to put datasets on the marketplace.
BANG FOR BUCK
We will offer a superficial experience similar to the one on stackoverflow. We aim to attract the fraction of their audience made of people who are more quantitative minded and to make them familliar with running computation on datasets. They will go on datapeek to find answers to quantitative questions about the state of the world and be encouraged to run an analysis by themselves whenever a dataset on matching that question is available.
About 50 millions people visit stackoverflow in a month. Around 20 millions of them are
thought to be developpers . We hope to bring 0.1% of them to view analysing datasets on ocean protocol as part of their thinking toolset. That’s about 20 000 developpers
with a quantitative bent.
Of those 20 000 in the target audience, We estimate about 1% will become active investors.
with a mean value of 2000 $OCEAN. It translates to around 400 000 $OCEAN .
We are anticipating some staking behavior and potential datasets coming from that audience
and are still evaluating how much we can expect.
- BANG: 400 000 $OCEAN
- BUCK: 32 000 $OCEAN
- BANG/BUCK Ratio: 12.5
App will be published at: https://datapeek.org/
We have started to work
- on the core ReQuest-Answer mechanic , gathering user feedback.
- on the automatic detection of arguments.
- on the automatic detection of data link on social media
We are going to work
- on refining the previous points
- starting the work on automatic suggestion of datasets.
