What is data science? - O'Reilly Radar

Five years ago, in What is Web 2.0, Tim O’Reilly said that “data is the next Intel Inside.” But what does that statement mean? Why do we suddenly care about statistics and about data? In this post, I examine the many sides of data science — the technologies, the companies and the unique skill sets. p31-special-sw-section-5.pdf (Objet application/pdf) For Scholars, Web Changes Sacred Rite of Peer Review. Big Brother au service des sciences sociales. Toutes les informations que nous fournissons sur les réseaux sociaux ou par le biais des téléphones portables constituent des bases de données inespérées pour les chercheurs qui étudient le comportement humain.

Big Brother au service des sciences sociales

Every move you make… I’ll be watching you [A chacun de tes gestes… Je te regarderai]. Comme dans la chanson de The Police, chacun de vos mouvements et chacun de vos écrits postés sur Twitter – également appelés des tweets – sont enregistrés quelque part. Vous n’y réfléchissez peut-être pas à deux fois, mais lorsque vous utilisez un réseau social ou un téléphone portable, vous laissez derrière vous une trace numérique qui décrit vos comportements, vos déplacements et vos préférences, dévoile qui sont vos amis et révèle vos humeurs et vos opinions. Unmeasurable Science. On Wednesday PLoS BLOGs launched with a splash.

Unmeasurable Science

We (both PLoS BLOGs as a whole and me individually) got a lot of positive feedback and words of encouragement – so we are off to a good start. As both our community manager Brian Mossop and myself are currently in London for the Science Online London Conference, we could celebrate the launch in person. With a good pint of British ale Thursday evening. Today I want to talk about something that is sticking in my head since a conversation a few weeks ago with some friends (all esteemed professors in biology or medicine) over another beer. And this has of course been discussed before, both on this blog and elsewhere. This is all good and well in the sense that researchers should be held accountable for how they are using their funding, often from public sources. Too Many Researchers Are Reluctant to Share Their Data - Commentary. By Felicia LeClere A new model of data sharing and openness is emerging in the scientific community that replaces traditional ways of thinking about research findings as the private property of the primary investigator.

Too Many Researchers Are Reluctant to Share Their Data - Commentary

Large granting agencies, including the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health, have embraced the new model of more-open access to research data. Later this year, the NSF will start requiring scientists seeking research grants to include a data-management plan in their applications, describing how and when their data will be shared.

The issue has also captured the attention of a U.S. ChemSpider - Database of Chemical Structures and Property Predictions. Valoriser et diffuser l'information scientifique sur le web. 5,093 views.

Science 2.0 Pioneers

Perhaps slower to take to Web-based dissemination than some professions, science—the endeavor for which the World Wide Web was developed—has gradually been adopting new online methods for distributing knowledge. Some say the changes could accelerate scientific progress. Croyez-vous au Réseaux Sociaux Pour Chercheurs ? There has been tens, if not hundreds, of attempts to launch social networks for scientists and for researchers over the last 3 years.

Croyez-vous au Réseaux Sociaux Pour Chercheurs ?

The new “Linkedin for Researchers” or “Facebook for Scientists”:,,, etc. Even the Fondation Pierre Gilles de Gennes recently launched its social network for scientists. Although a few of them provide real incentives for researchers ( etc.), although some of them provide really useful tools for scientists ( etc.), most of them, however, fail or will fail. BioTorrents: A File Sharing Service for Scientific Data. The transfer of scientific data has emerged as a significant challenge, as datasets continue to grow in size and demand for open access sharing increases.

BioTorrents: A File Sharing Service for Scientific Data

Current methods for file transfer do not scale well for large files and can cause long transfer times. In this study we present BioTorrents, a website that allows open access sharing of scientific data and uses the popular BitTorrent peer-to-peer file sharing technology. BioTorrents allows files to be transferred rapidly due to the sharing of bandwidth across multiple institutions and provides more reliable file transfers due to the built-in error checking of the file sharing technology. BioTorrents contains multiple features, including keyword searching, category browsing, RSS feeds, torrent comments, and a discussion forum.

Librarians still have vital role in the Web 2.0 era - SCIENCE INTELLIGENCE. Information professional Hervé Basset shares his observations about the role of Web 2.0 technology in science intelligence in industry In the past months much has been written about the hyped Web 2.0.

Evangelists have talked about applying this to almost everything published or diffused online. Many people expect scientists to be leaders of the Web 2.0 pack. Observing the behaviour of my end users, however, it is not yet clear to me whether this prophecy has been achieved. Parallel Archive. Parallel Archive - The Project. Our scope Parallel Archive (PA) is an online repository created by and for scholars to store and share their archival documents.

It was developed by the Open Society Archives (OSA) with the generous support of the Institute of Record. The project builds on OSA's long-term efforts to collect, preserve, and make available material related to recent history and contemporary human rights while experimenting with innovative ways to contextualize primary sources. PA is the centerpiece of OSA's research into the changing role of archives in the digital environment. It aims to support and extend the role of archives in research by making it possible to study primary sources directly online, by encouraging archives and individuals to publicize their material, and by providing a space for collaborative work. Our objectives To create alternative access to primary sources by building on the individual efforts of scholars to digitize archival material; Science and Technology Newsletters: Science 2.0 - Time to Move Forward.

Science 2.0: Communicating Science in a Web 2.0 World. The increasing popularity of blogs, social networking sites, and twitter has cre ated many new and interactive forums for people to communicate about science. The National Academies recently invited Phil Plait, author of the blog BAD ASTRONOMY and president of the James Randi Educational Foundation to speak about these technologies and how they are being used by science. Byte Size Biology » Science 2.0: things that work and things that don’t. By Iddo on July 30th, 2009. Science 2.0. Près de 2000 scientifiques ou étudiants en science blogueraient désormais sur une base mensuelle, hebdomadaire, voire quotidienne. Aux États-Unis, c’est dès 2003 que les plus audacieux ont compris combien le blogue ouvrait une fenêtre inespérée : d’un côté, une partie inquiétante du public voit encore le scientifique comme un Prof Tournesol enfermé dans sa tour d’ivoire.

De l’autre, la place que les médias allouent à la science est si mince —et elle rétrécit! — que les scientifiques ont peu d’opportunités pour renverser cette perception négative. Certes, les professionnels de la vulgarisation ont réalisé d’énormes gains, depuis leur expansion dans les années 1950-1960. Pourquoi est-ce qu’on blogue?

The more we understand about science and its complexities, the more important it is for scientific data to be shared openly. It’s not useful to have ten different labs doing the same research and not sharing their results; likewise, we’re much more likely to be able to pinpoint diseases if we have genomic data from a large pool of individuals.

Since 2004, we’ve been focusing our efforts to expand the use of Creative Commons licenses to scientific and technical research. Science Advisory Board Open Access The Scholars’ Copyright Project Creative Commons plays an instrumental role in the Open Access movement, which is making scholarly research and journals more widely available on the Web.
