This is great post about the data stack at Factual.
It’s Big Data Week
Events are happening across the globe.
Data Science Courses
This is a nice collection of data science related courses offered at various colleges and universities. It is on a wiki page so you are free to add links.
Later today (2-3:45 pm ET), the White House will announce a $200M BigData research Initiative. Appropriately, it is being named the “Big Data Research and Development Initiative.”
The announcement will be broadcast live on Science360.
See this PDF for a listing of bigdata projects within the US Government.
I am excited to see how this will affect the education and training of data scientists.
What are your thoughts? Is this a good idea?
