This week will be another informal DaSH session, so come along with your Data Science related problems, or your keen Data Science mind and lets see if we can make get together. After last week’s session on Fortran, we have also had people asking about netcdf operators and there always seems to be questions on presenting results. This week is a good opportunity for following up on recent presentations, or discussing new topics, so come along and see what happens.
Remember you can keep up to date with what is happening at DaSH each week via our twitter feed (@DataScienceHobart), on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/datasciencehobart) or the WordPress blog (https://datasciencehobart.wordpress.com/). If you follow the twitter feed then you can part of the live tweeting that has been happening recently, just like Q&A. Or, if you are stuck in a time warp from pre 2004 you could try asking someone.
ALSO: Tom and Mike and getting their Software Carpentry sessions together. We will be discussing this in more detail on Friday to give people an idea of what they have planned. Before then though we have a few weeks, so if you want to present some new analyses, or have an idea for a topic, then let me know.
And don’t forget that the Faculty of Health will be running a workshop on Practical Bayesian analysis with Bayes Factor on June 15. This is a free course for UTas and CSIRO staff and students. Bayesian analysis has become a standard, if not dominant, tool among statisticians. It has many advantages over standard practice, including conceptual clarity, a principled accounting of statistical evidence and rational belief, and the ability to answer questions of interest to researchers.
