Surfacing Dark Knowledge: How Blockchain Technology Enhances Academic Publishing
Session Description: Significant portions of usable, and funded research never make it through the data funnel, getting lost as "dark knowledge." Blockchain technology offers new ways to bring this dark knowledge to light. The panel will discuss how blockchain technology impacts research and scholarly outputs including attribution, reproducibility, immutibility and peer review. Discussions will include how the technology can promote more knowledge, abbreviating time to market. Emerging use cases will be highlighted to demonstrate how the technology has dislodged traditional academic publishing practices including the ability to mine dark knowledge for potential scientific break throughs.
