The presentation I gave at the Microsoft eScience meeting where I won the Jim Gray Award has been posted online here and I have embedded it below.Please note that the embedded movie below only shows me speaking. In order to see the slides that I presented you have to go to the page on the Microsoft site that shows me speaking and the slides…it will make a lot more sense that way.
This was an interesting presentation to give as there were very few chemists in the audience and I had to teach some very basic chemistry and cheminformatics information in order to position some of the work that has been done with ChemSpider. I really enjoyed giving the presentation and received some good questions after the session over a “glass of water”. I am very thankful to Microsoft for the recognition and especially to the entire group of people over years who have contributed to ChemSpider development including my colleagues at RSC (old and new), people who were involved initially and moved on, the advisory group, the data depositors, curators and annotators.
