first version of data space transfer protocol

The National Center for Data Mining at the University of Illinois at Chicago launched the first version of an infrastructure called Data Space Transfer Protocol, or DSTP, for creating the next generation web of data.

The new transfer protocol will unify the way data is stored online. Downloading data from different sites via high-speed networks and analyzing the data in real-time will become possible for the first time. "DSTP will standardize the way data is shared, the same way HTTP revolutionized the way documents are shared," said Georg Reinhart, who developed DSTP with Emory Creel. Researchers will be able to search, analyze and mine databases simultaneously, even if the databases contain different types of data.
