Hi all,

Due to misuse of our payment module for card testing, we have temporarily closed our payment module. This means that we will suspend the payment requirement for the General Assemby this year for BONSAmurais that have been active on this list during the last year.

See you!

Experience with DVC for data version control?

 

Quick question to the data scientists among us: Does anyone have experience with DVC? It looks very promising so I might use it for my PhD but I would like to hear user experiences first.

ARIES & BONSAI meeting wrap-up #aries

 

Dear BONSAI and ARIES members,

 

I hope you enjoyed the holidays and are ready to start into the new year with new energy!

 

As a late Christmas present, I am happy to inform you that I was finally able to share the recordings from our k.LAB introduction meeting. You can find links to the files on the following page in ARIES’ confluence: https://confluence.integratedmodelling.org/display/BC/Meetings

 

Please note that the files are password protected with the key provided on the same page.

 

Furthermore, I would like to remind all BONSAI members that we are still looking for volunteers to prepare a hackathon with ARIES. Target of the hackathon should be to import Exiobase and/or the Yale Stocks and Flows database into k.LAB and use k.LAB’s ontological features for advanced analyses. If you are interested, please get in touch!

 

Happy watching and see you around!

Ben


ARIES & BONSAI meeting wrap-up #aries

 

Dear BONSAI-Samurais,

 

thank you for participating in Tuesday’s and today’s meeting with ARIES.

 

Concerning Tuesday’s k.LAB tour, I have uploaded the recording but I am currently not able to share it due to insufficient privileges. I am in contact with AAU’s IT department to resolve the issue.

 

Concerning today’s meeting, it was decided to create a common confluence space to discuss ideas for a common project and possibly organize a workshop. I encourage everyone who is interested in the cooperation to create an account. After creating an account, let me know your username so I can get you access permissions. As an additional incentive for registering, I uploaded today’s meeting minutes in the space and did not attach them here :P

 

- Ben

Re: BONSAI & ARIES #communication

 

Dear BONSAI Samurais,

I apologize for the spam. Two important updates:
1) I changed the service of tomorrow's k.LAB tour to Zoom. Please find the access link below. Please note that the meeting WILL BE RECORDED and made available password-protected to members of BONSAI and ARIES. By joining the meeting, you agree to these terms. If you do not agree but still would like to join, please get in touch. Thursday's exchange details remain unchanged (Webex link from my last message / email invitation).
2) Matteo pointed out that I misspelled my email address in my last message. The correct address is benjamin.portner@... (hyphen instead of a dot). Thank Matteo! If someone tried to get in touch, please do so again with the correct address!

See you tomorrow!
Ben

BONSAI & ARIES #communication

 

Dear BONSAI-Samurais,

I just sent out invitations for the k.LAB tour on Tuesday. Unfortunately, there will be no recording as no one seems to have the right software. Let's see it as a motivation to listen closely ;)

Those who have not received an invitation may hit me up via email (benjamin.portner@...) or simply use this button to join on the day of the meeting:

ARIES & BONSAI: k.LAB tour, Tuesday 1 December 2020, 17:00-18:30 CET

Join meeting



Also, please do not forget that there is a second meeting on Thursday, 3 December 2020, 17:00-18:30 CET to discuss opportunities for collaboration. Again, please get in touch if you have not received an invitation and would like to join - or use this button:

ARIES & BONSAI: opportunities for collaboration, Thursday 3 December 2020, 17:00-18:30 CET

 

Join meeting



Thank you and see y'all on Tuesday/Thursday!
Ben


Re: BONSAI Updates #meetingminutes #communication

 

Dear BONSAI-Samurais again,

It is decided! We shall meet ARIES on Thursday, 3 December 2020, 17:00-18:30 CET. I sent out invitations to those who participated in the poll. If you have not received an invitation and would like to join, please PM me your email address.

For the k.LAB-Tour, Ken would prefer Tuesday 1 December 2020, 17:00-18:30 CET. Those who would like to participate, please block this time frame. Instead of sending out invitations I have a request: I would like to record the tour so that all BONSAI members can look at it at a later time. Unfortunately, my organization's meeting tool does not support recordings. Does anyone here have access to a corresponding tool and can set up the meeting?

Cheers.
Ben


Re: BONSAI Updates #meetingminutes #communication

 

Dear BONSAI-Samurais,

thank you to those who have already participated in the poll to find a date for an exchange with ARIES. So far it looks like we have a majority for 3 December 2020 17:00-18:30 CET so please do not plan anything else for that date and time. I will leave the poll open one more week (until 20 November). Please inform those members who might be interested and have not voted yet.

All the best.
Ben


Re: Where can I find (or make) turtle files? #dataliberation

 

(moving this back to the original thread, apologies for posting to the wrong one before)

Thanks for your answers, Matteo and Søren! I was indeed talking about a machine accessible from anywhere, including but not limited to AAU. Such a machine might be useful for inspecting and manipulating exiobase in general, not just for converting it to an ontology. For now I am fine doing stuff on my laptop but things take long sometimes. Hence my curiosity.

Cheers.
Ben


-------------------------------------
From: Matteo

Currently the endpoint is running on a VM at AAU.
(which is quite hard to reach since you need two different steps VPN+proxy machine access)

I think Benjamin is talking about machine independent from AAU.

Also, it is important to note that the requirements (which are not so large by todays standards -- Thanks Moore!) are just if you plan to convert the entire Exiobase.

If you plan to work on YSTAFDB you can do it with your laptop.

In principle we should have a VM at AAU (funded by the ODA-project), but I do not know if it accessible and set up in a way that makes this possible(?) Maybe Matteo knows?

Holy moly! The hardware requirements are intense. Do we have something like a central BONSAI cluster where we can run such code?


Re: BONSAI Updates #meetingminutes #communication

 

Dear BONSAI-Samurais!

I am back from my holiday and there is news from ARIES. They asked me to move both our meetings, the k.LAB software tour and the scoping of collaboration opportunities, to December. In response, I opened a new doodle poll. To keep the amount of double work small I suggest that we use this poll to determine both dates: The date with most votes will be reserved for the scoping, the date with second most votes will be reserved for the software tour. Please let me know if you are against this procedure. I apologize for the extra work and hope for your continuous brisk participation.

All the best.
Ben

Requirements

To run all scripts, a machine running Linux needs to be installed. The machine should atleast have the following specs:

  • Software;

    • Linux Ubuntu 18.04 Distribution (with git, bash, unzip, wget and docker)
    • Python 3.6+, pip and virtualenv
  • Hardware:

    • RAM: 64GB RAM
    • DISK SPACE: ´~500GB Free
    • CPU: 8 cores


Re: BONSAI Updates #meetingminutes #communication

 

Hi everyone,

I am looking for someone to manage the doodle polls for the next two weeks while I am on holiday. So far, it looks like no action will be necessary as most participants have voted for dates in mid-November. This could change any time though as the ARIES members have not yet given their vote. Anyone willing to organize a meeting in case early November turns out favorable?

Cheers.
Ben


Re: Where can I find (or make) turtle files? #dataliberation

Matteo Lissandrini (AAU)
 

Hi Arthur, all,

the BONSAI conversion workflow is currently ongoing an independent reproducibility assessment in coordination with the ISWC Conference.

Hence, we have setup a way for anyone to get all the data and do all the conversions (Exiobase and YSTAFDB).

Here are the full instructions:

https://github.com/IKnowLogic/BONSAI-reproducibility

If you find any problem, feel free to open an issue on the repo there.

Note that files `.ttl` `.nt` and `.rdf` are equivalent and one can always move from one to the other in any direction automatically.


Best,
Matteo

Re: Where can I find (or make) turtle files? #dataliberation

 

Hi Artur!

Disclaimer: I am not an ontology expert either. I did not see an LCI in ttl yet but you can find some examples of ttl-formated data from BONSAI here: https://github.com/BONSAMURAIS/rdf. For example, you can see how Exiobase has been converted and split according to the key ontology concepts like activity, flow, location, etc. One thing I could not find are the actual numerical values of the flows. Are they stored separately?

Cheers.
Ben


Where can I find (or make) turtle files? #dataliberation

arturdonaldson@...
 

Hi all,

I am looking for semantic formatted data in the form of turtle (.ttl ) files. I tried the SPARQL enpoint but only saw a way to download the results in .csv format.

I am not very familiar with file types used on the Semantic web, so forgive me if this is a silly question, but could someone share a link to some Life Cycle Inventory data in .ttl files?

All the best,
Artur Donaldson
