Q1. Is there any guidelines to follow if I’d like to upload a dataset?

A. Edward Cui: We will publish the guidance documentation on Github for everyone to collaborate and contribute their knowledge to the guidance. The key here is where to host those data. Graviti is currently building a data platform to be the host of open datasets.

Q2. How would the schema be able to integrate with the machine learning framework and models?

A. Linji Xue: We are trying to solve the inconsistent data format problem. If most datasets follow the standard, it will be very easy to connect different datasets and different training codes. So, the key is we must justify the format of datasets. And if dataset format has been clearly defined then we can write the training code and integrate it with machine learning frameworks, according to this predefined format.

Q3. Data license schema is also important, do you plan to work on it?

A. Linji Xue: We need to focus more on researching about the existing language which can use to define data structures. Also we need to work on configuring pre-defined format and solving languages that are not designed for table structures. From this, I included house sharing, the center formats and how to put bounding boxes into the schema languages.
