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? p31-special-sw-section-5.pdf (Objet application/pdf) For Scholars, Web Changes Sacred Rite of Peer Review. RECHERCHE • 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.

RECHERCHE • 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. De leur côté, les sociologues doivent généralement se contenter de simples questionnaires ou d’entretiens pour collecter des données et vérifier leurs théories.

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. 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.

PostGutenberg Peer Review. Joseph Esposito [JE] asks, in liblicense-l: JE: “What happens when the number of author-pays open access sites grows and these various services have to compete with one another to get the finest articles deposited in their respositories?”

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. From open-access journals to research-review blogs, from collaboration by wiki to epidemiology by Blackberry, networked knowledge has made more science more accessible more quickly and to more people around the globe than could have been imagined 20 years ago. 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”: www.collab.com, www.academia.edu, www.academiaconnect.org, biomedexperts.com 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. VIVO : le Facebook pour Chercheurs. Sept Universités américaines ont reçu 1.8 million de dollars chacune (un projet de 12.2 millions) pour créer un Facebook pour Scientifiques aux Etats-Unis.

VIVO : le Facebook pour Chercheurs

Le projet appelé VIVO Web sera plus renforcé que Facebook au niveau de la sécurité, des données sensibles et de la propriété intellectuelle. VIVO permettra le partage des connaissances entre chercheurs dans le domaine de la médecine principalement (base de données de connaissances des protéines Uniprot, Ontologie des gènes,..). Le projet qui est financé par l’Institut de la Santé américaine veut avant tout permettre une meilleure communication entre les scientifiques qui sont actuellement dispersés dans des communautés sur le web mais sur une multitude de sites différents. Le réseau social des chercheurs permettra de les focaliser en une seule destination internet et d’interagir entre eux pour mener à bien leurs recherches plus rapidement. Site: www.vivoweb.org.

100330 Pmlpa Science 20 New. La science revue par les blogueurs : Le blog des blogs. Recherche scientifique et blogosphère peuvent faire bon ménage pour le bonheur des internautes curieux, des amateurs de science et même celui des chercheurs. Les blogs peuvent-ils être un média sérieux et fiable pour la diffusion des travaux de recherche scientifique ? On peut raisonnablement se poser la question. Dave Munger n'a plus de doute en la matière. Science 2.0. (Agence Science-Presse) Où en est la réflexion sur la science 2.0? Où sont ceux qui jonglent avec l'idée d'une science plus participative? La semaine dernière avait lieu en Caroline du Nord un congrès annuel dont la variété des sujets nous fait paraître bien petits.

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.

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.
