Provenance provides documentation that is key to preserve data, to determine the data’s quality and authorship, to understand, reproduce, as well as validate results. In this talk, I will review some of the state-of-the-art techniques, and discuss benefits of provenance that go beyond reproducibility, including the support for collaborative data exploration and visualization. I will also show how provenance can aid in teaching and enable reproducible publications.
