Dat is an open source tool, funded by the Sloan Foundation in the United States as part of their Science Tools research funding, that seeks to enable collaboration workflows for datasets with an emphasis on approaches that are automated and reproducible.

The core Dat tool is a streaming dataset versioning and replication system developed with a heavy Unix philosophy designed to encourage extreme modularity and enable many third-party applications to be built on top.

Our project website is https://github.com/maxogden/dat.

In this talk, we will introduce what we are working on and seek feedback from the audience.
