Taylor Oshan
University of Maryland

Taylor Oshan has been exploring how to use and take advantage of decentralized infrastructure like PIF and Filecoin for geospatial data. In this podcast we learn what geospatial data actually is - rumor has it it's about 60% of all data! Then Taylor explains why decentralizing is an important effort and how it can increase the robustness as well as efficiency of data storage and access.
