TU Berlin and DFKI Vision Paper on Data Science Ecosystem Agora was Accepted for Publication in SIGMOD Record
A vision paper by researchers of the Database Systems and Information Management group (DIMA) at TU Berlin and the Intelligent Analytics for Massive Data (IAM)  group at DFKI was accepted for publication in SIGMOD Record. In their paper the authors describe their vision towards a unified ecosystem that brings together data, algorithms, models, and computational resources and provides them to a broad audience.
The Paper “Agora: Bringing Together Datasets, Algorithms, Models and More in a Unified Ecosystem [Vision]” by Jonas Traub, Zoi Kaoudi, Jorge-Arnulfo Quiané-Ruiz and Volker Markl presents the vision of the data management system Agora that operates in a heavily decentralized and dynamic environment where data, algorithms, and even compute resources are dynamically created, modified, and removed by different stakeholders. It aims to offer a flexible exchange of assets among users and thereby addresses the problem of a lock-in effect to the few data management system providers that currently can afford the large investments into the multitude of assets necessary for such a system.
A preprint version of the paper (PDF)  is available for download.
