Imagine you work on semantic annotation of photos and aim to automatically annotate a photo with names, places, and events. But you aren't the only one in the field, and you would like to benchmark your own work against another group's data set, or you aim to reuse a third group's method. Today, there are almost no good standards and procedures in our community to share and reuse data, methods, models, or algorithms—this is something we should change!
