Abstract:

SERC research project WRT-1009 is a continued investigation of model curation as a topic that spans implementation of model curation practice, new roles and responsibilities of individuals and organizations, and approaches to curate models for intended purpose. Knowledge gathering and continued interaction with research stakeholders has furthered the understanding of elements of implementation practice. Criteria for placing models under enterprise-level curation were adapted based on curation in other fields. Preliminary implementation and governance guiding principles were derived from research findings. An exploration of enablers, barriers and precursors for model curation and authoritative source of truth motivated a deeper exploration of model credibility and accreditation. As a result, precursors to credibility were formulated. Several areas of innovation were identified as candidates for use of newer technologies to advance model curation. Six recommendations for future research are identified.
