The National Science Foundation’s (NSF) tracks A and B of the 
Convergence Accelerator program are proud to present the next speaker in 
their 2021/2022 speaker series on Open Knowledge Networks. The series 
will feature researchers and practitioners widely recognized for their 
contribution to knowledge graphs, knowledge engineering, and FAIR data.

Abstract. There are thousands of data repositories on the Web, providing 
access to millions of datasets. National and regional governments, 
scientific publishers and consortia, commercial data providers, and 
others publish data for fields ranging from social science to life 
science to high-energy physics to climate science and more. Access to 
this data is critical to facilitating reproducibility of research 
results, enabling scientists to build on others’ work, and providing 
data journalists easier access to information and its provenance. In 
this talk, we will discuss recently launched Dataset Search by Google, 
which provides search capabilities over potentially all dataset 
repositories on the Web. I will talk about the open ecosystem for 
describing datasets that we hope to encourage.

Bio: Natasha Noy is a senior staff scientist at Google Research where 
she works on making structured data accessible and useful. She leads the 
team building Dataset Search, a search engine for all the datasets on 
the Web. Prior to joining Google, Noy worked at Stanford Center for 
Biomedical Informatics Research where she made major contributions in 
the areas of ontology development and alignment, and collaborative 
ontology engineering. Noy is a Fellow of the Association for the 
Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI). She served as president 
of the Semantic Web Science Association from 2011 to 2017.
