Snippet: Science special collection on Dealing with Data

Posted: February 15th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Snippets | Tags: , , , | 2 Comments »

The February edition of Science offers a special collection of articles from scientists in a variety of fields on the challenges and opportunities of working with large amounts of data.

The overwhelming theme seems to be a need for tools, visualizations, and a common vocabulary for expressing, exploring, and working with data across disciplines.

Thanks to Chris Wiggins for the pointer.

    Yeah, Dr. Gelman mentioned earlier this week in his blog that he hoped for a site devoted to the sharing of data. The problem lies in the fact of multiple ways of data storing. I believe a site devoted to combining this data and producing a common data set would be very useful.
