I'm new here. I wonder if you could point me in the right direction. A potential use case for a decentralised app, possibly ethereum - or somewhere else (if not already planned - I couldn't find it).
Thousands of scientists need to access their data from centralised sources - each website is typically fiddly, and updates to the data used not easily notified. Examples include epidemiologists, sociologists, economists, but many more. It would aid the efficiency and reproducibility of science if these were downloaded in the same file structure for each use, and updates could be automatically added. Could ethereum do this? among other things this would also aid pooling of analysis of different studies (meta analysis).
Aside from the data, would also aid the reproducibility of science if the statistical analysis syntax was also shared (stata do file or spss equivilent etc).
