November 1 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

DataBytes is an NCDS-sponsored lunchtime webinar series that gives our members and the larger data community the chance to discuss the most pressing and interesting issues in data science. Webinars are generally held on the first Wednesday of every month, excluding July. All webinars are easily accessible from the NCDS homepage and from this page.

For the November talk, Nick Bollweg and Tony Fast, two contributors to the Jupyter Project, will discuss the frontiers of open science. 

Abstract: Science, and its application to engineering, policy, and business, ultimately affects people and communities. In solving new problems, while we may make use of ever more data and computers, we must also have greater impact and reach for people. Open science, along with open source software and open data, continues to expand the frontiers of innovation.

Join Nick and Tony in traversing the powers of ten with data-driven stories. Experts in visual problem solving with Jupyter, Nick and Tony have explored problems across technology silos, length scales, and disciplines. Together, they hope to provide a rough map of what might be on open science’s frontier of reusable, computable information, or, failing that, a style guide for any citizen scientist looking to access new powers of ten from the cutting edges of open science and software.
