After getting oriented to the research problems of phenology, understanding data collection and storage, and discussing the statistical methods and approaches during the past few days of our expedition to Acadia National Park, we dug into solutions and designs on day four.
Fundamentally, more complete and accurate data sets around bird migration, barnacle abundance, weather, duck population, and water resource data all help us…Continue

Ben Rooney, of WSJ Europe, recently posted a quick interview with EMC's Pat Gelsinger discussing Big Data. In my opinion, Gelsinger is one of the most thoughtful (and successful) high tech execs in the entire industry. His perspective on Big Data is spot on.
“We do think there is this new skill set— data scientist,” he said in an interview at a London conference he hosted on Big Data. “This will be the cool new place to be, like computer science was 30 years ago. Then we…

First, let me say how pleased I am to be a part of the Data Science Central community. While I was the VP of Marketing at EMC Greenplum, I had a front row seat to the dynamic and very exciting “Big Data” and “Data Science” shows. EMC Greenplum has played a pivotal role in helping organizations of all sizes start the process of orienting their businesses and decision-making around data. It has been said, and I’ll say it again –the companies that embrace the power of data and live that life…Continue
This year has seen consolidation and engineering around improving the basic storage and data processing engines of NoSQL and Hadoop. That will doubtless continue, as we see the unruly menagerie of the Hadoop universe increasingly packaged into distributions, appliances and on-demand cloud services. Hopefully it won’t be long before that’s dull, yet necessary, infrastructure.
Looking up the stack, there’s already a line up of cool tools for data scientists and not to be left out,…Continue
