In this lunchtime lecture Laura Koesten and Emilia Kacprzak,  PhD students working on the WDAqua project, will describe why data on the web is still so hard to find. They will discuss how we can help people find and make sense of data, by improving the experience of data search and summarising datasets.

Friday lunchtime lectures are for everyone and are free to attend. You bring your lunch, we provide tea and coffee, an interesting talk, and enough time to get back to your desk.

They will also talk us through their imagining of how data search will look like in the future based on their research at the ODI over the past 2.5 years.
