& tools - Greater demand for data skills: wrangling, visualization, analysis - LIBD itself generates results that are large data collections - Greater demand across LIBD scientists to learn how to work with data https://ceramics.org/ceramic-tech-today/supercomputer- powered-materials-database-unleashes-data-deluge … and many more
of a data science group? Perform analyses: answer data related questions Stay updated on new methods / software Provide guidance to others when navigating the world of DS Collaborate as a part of the scientific team - understand the data generation process - work as a team with biologists
my team to do (you can join us) - Individual data science guidance sessions - Based on my 3 yr experience as an MPH capstone TA - Give ideas and feedback, but don’t do the analysis: different from a consultant or service unit - ~25 min session with ~15 min prep prior and ~10 min post - Build an internal session log (only for those helping) - General training - LIBD rstats club - Public facing knowledge base website
explain your question then meet with me ~25 min 2. Meet with an assigned team member for ~25/50 min 3. Loop back if needed Internally: (session guidance training +) - Slack - Weekly meeting to discuss requests - Access to private session logs Louise Josh Arta Nick You?
you need to learn (learning has to be included) - You learn differently if you know you’ll teach later - Can identify internal R package / software needs - Break silos: hopefully improve environment - Lead by convincing early on in the life of a project - There is more room for change early on that after a project has been completed
& protected time (20%) - Identify projects we want to work on as collaborators - Can help train current group members: level up our DS capacity - Enables delegating more DS tasks & training - Enables building nicer tools/websites/training materials - Reduces bottlenecks by reducing concentration - Provides critical mass to have an effect institute-wide - Can help recruit talent to LIBD & increase exposure - Improve environment &/or productivity?
