Les mauvaises données des marchés

Le problème, identifié il y a plusieurs semaines, n'a toujours pas été traité. Nous avons demandé à Etalab, la mission chargée de la coordination du site, de s'expliquer. Depuis peu, le site met en avant sur sa page d’accueil trois sets de données particulièrement attractifs : la liste des attributaires des marchés publics d’État pour les années 2008, 2009 et 2010.

Le 12 novembre se déroulait le premier hackathon organisé par Capitale ouverte, en partenariat avec la Ville de Québec. Ce fut une journée très animée où on a pu voir à l’oeuvre des équipes de programmeurs et de créateurs qui s’étaient donné rendez-vous chez l’espace pour améliorer la vie numérique des citoyens de Québec.

L’événement a réuni 40 individus très créatifs pour faire avancer la cause des données ouvertes dans la Capitale Nationale.

New University of Utah center offers some serious computing muscle to handle 'extreme data'

A few years ago, then Hewlett-Packard CEO Mark Hurd said "more data will be created in the next four years than in the history of the planet. " Hurd's prediction was understated. Studies have showed that humanity has created more computer data than all documents in the entire past 40,000 years — and that was in 2007. Software Testing Automation Framework (STAF) Welcome.

The Visible Universe, Then and Now. Before the telescope was invented in 1608, our picture of the universe consisted of six planets, our moon, the sun and any stars we could see in the Milky Way galaxy.

But as our light-gathering capabilities have grown, so too have the boundaries of the visible universe. Our interactive map shows how the known universe has grown from 1950 to 2011. In the late 1700s, William Herschel, an English astronomer using a telescope with an 18.7-inch aperture, made the first systematic surveys of the skies, revealing more than 2,000 distant galaxies, nebulae and other objects invisible to the naked eye. Since then, increasingly powerful optical and radio telescopes have greatly expanded our store of knowledge. Presse - Article - Les journalistes français sur Twitter vus comme un graphe.

Latest. As I mentioned in my previous post, our collaboration with the Sabeti Lab is aimed at creating new visual exploration tools to help researchers, doctors, and clinicians discover patterns and associations in large health and epidemiological datasets.


These tools will be the first step in a hypothesis-generation process, combining intuition from expert users with visualization techniques and automated algorithms, allowing users to quickly test hypothesis that are “suggested” by the data itself. Researchers and doctors have a deep familiarity with their data and often can tell immediately when a new pattern is potentially interesting or simply the result of noise. Visualization techniques will help articulate their knowledge to a wider audience. About - Company, Products & Services, Contacts.

Desktop. How many pupils from your school go to Oxbridge? Four schools and one sixth-form college sent more pupils to Oxford and Cambridge between them over three years than 2,000 schools and colleges across the UK, according to a new study that analyses university admissions by individual schools. Westminster, Eton, St Pauls, St Pauls Girls School and Hills Road sixth form college, a state school, produced 946 Oxbridge entrants from 2007-09. In the same period, 2,000 schools and colleges sent 927 pupils to Oxbridge. The difference in these schools' success rates is driven mainly by gaps in achievement at A-level, but some schools do better at gaining entry to university than others with similar exam results. At a comprehensive and a private school in Cornwall, with near identical results, one sent 17% to selective universities and the other 66%.

26 October 2011 Around 60,000 historical scientific papers are accessible via a fully searchable online archive, with papers published more than 70 years ago now becoming freely available. The Royal Society is the world’s oldest scientific publisher, with the first edition of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society appearing in 1665. Henry Oldenburg – Secretary of the Royal Society and first Editor of the publication – ensured that it was “licensed by the council of the society, being first reviewed by some of the members of the same”, thus making it the first ever peer-reviewed journal. Philosophical Transactions had to overcome early setbacks including plague, the Great Fire of London and even the imprisonment of Oldenburg, but against the odds the publication survived to the present day.

Its foundation would eventually be recognised as one of the most pivotal moments of the scientific revolution. Search the journal archive here. Bank for International Settlements. BuzzData.
