Big Data To Knowledge Webinars and Discussion Group

Posted by on October 8th, 2016 Posted in: Data Science, News From NNLM PNR, Training & Education


The following announcement is from Jenny Muilenburg, Acting Data Services Coordinator University of Washington Libraries

The UW Health Sciences Library and Research Data Services are collaborating with the National Network of Libraries of Medicine/Pacific Northwest Region, to provide a monthly discussion group focused on issues around Data Science, with a focus on biomedical science. The discussion group will provide a venue for those interested in the National Institutes of Health’s Big Data to Knowledge “Guide to the Fundamentals of Data Science,” a series of online lectures given by experts from across the country covering a range of diverse topics in data science.

The online lecture series is an introductory overview that assumes no prior knowledge or understanding of data science, and will run all year, once per week, from 9-10am Pacific Time. The list of speakers through the beginning of 2017 is available online, http://www.bigdatau.org/data-science-seminars. Upcoming topics include Ontologies, Metadata, Provenance, Databases, Social Networking Data, Exploratory Data Analysis, and lots more.

Librarians and others interested in biomedical big data from around the Puget Sound are invited to join a monthly Friday discussion group on October 14, November 18 and December 16.   The group will meet at 8:45am to watch the week’s BD2K online lecture, and then from 10-11am share insights or questions about that week’s topic, and previous lectures in the series.  All discussion groups will be held in The Health Sciences Pacific Room.

Questions? Email Emily Patridge at ep001@uw.edu.  Parking reimbursements will be offered for off campus participants.
