Open Data Science - SheffieldWelcome!
The Open Data Science Initiative aims to bring the philosophy of sharing and community resource assimilation that underpins the success of the open source software movement to the area of research software to capitalise on underlying social driver that many talented people would like to see their ideas and work being applied for the widest benefit possible.
- The academic role of the institute will be:
- Make new analysis methodologies available as widely and rapidly as possible with as few conditions on their use as possible.
- Educate our commercial, scientific and medical partners in the use of these latest methodologies
- Act to achieve a balance between data sharing for societal benefit and the right of an individual to own their data.
In the SITraN group of Machine Learning of the University of Sheffield we are
organizing a series of meetups to bring together people interested in
Data Science! The meetings typically consist on presentations of
relevant contributors to the Data Science field combined with informal
discussion, poster sessions, round tables etc. In our first meeting we
organized the first dynamic poster session using IPython-notebooks! You
can have a look at the IPython-notebooks presented in the previous
Feel free to join us! Actually, we are making up a mail list with
everyone interested in these events. Do not hesitate to contact
email@example.com if you want to be part of it! Details
about future the events will be updated in this web.
