Special Issue Data Science and AI within the NFDI

Modern research on an internationally competitive level is no longer possible without digital support. More and more data is generated and more and more technical systems are used. This leads to a paradigm shift that is currently being accompanied by numerous activities in the field of research data infrastructures. Prominent examples are the National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI) and the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).

Within the NFDI consortium NFDI4DS, a national research data infrastructure for Data Science and AI is currently under development. The key idea is to work towards increasing the transparency, reproducibility and fairness of projects, by making all digital artifacts available, by interlinking them, and by offering new and innovative tools and services.

Data Science and AI is an interdisciplinary field that is important for many NFDI consortia. This special issue focuses on recent developments in Data Science and AI in the different consortia.
