DaSH Seminar for February 20

Hi DaSHers,

This week’s DaSH Seminar features Simon Ellingsen from the Discipline of Physics at UTas. Simon will be telling us all about using iPython notebooks. IPython is an interactive environment for working with python and the IPython notebook is a browser-based interface to this.  As the name suggests it aims to fill a role similar to a research (or other) working notebook.  Simon says he has been using IPython notebooks for about 6 months and found them very good for exploratory investigations/debugging a process and multi-institutuon/campus collaboration.  He’ll show you how you can use IPython notebooks to keep code, outputs (plots, tables etc) and any notes or additional information in one place and easily revise or revisit the work.

ALSO: I am still working on developing a timetable of talks over the next month or two. I have lots of maybes and not many definites. If you have been thinking of giving a DaSH talk then now is the time to put your hand up.

Aurora Lecture Theatre, 20 Castray Esplanade, Battery Point

Friday 20 February, 9:15am

DaSH Seminar for February 6

Hi DaSHers,

DaSH is back for 2015. After a summer hiatus the Data Science Seminar series is kicking back off again this week with a presentation by Indi Hodgson-Johnston from IMAS. Indi is going to talk about the rising use of infographics to communicate complex datasets to ordinary people (ie those who may not spend all their life studying graphs). It will include examples, processes & how you can be involved to get your data based research out to a broader audience.

Stuart

ALSO: I am hoping to have DaSH talks pretty much every week from here on. I have a few people pencilled in over the coming weeks, but can’t reveal details just yet. If you have an idea for a presentation (either one you want to present, or just one you want to hear) then please get in touch.
