Data Visualization Contest
This December 4-5, DataBeat will host the 3rd annual Data Science Summit taking place December 4-5 in Redwood, CA. The event brings together academics, organizations, media companies, and brands to explore the biggest challenges and opportunities in data science.
We've teamed up with DataBeat to display a gallery of visualizations at the event. Submit your visualization around the theme of Health. Visualizations can cover topics such as nutrition, disease, fitness and more. At the event, a panel of jurors will select the winning visualizations.
New Hadoop Community
Data Science Central has created a new community: Hadoop360. This is a new DSC channel. Other channels include Analytics, Big Data, and Visualization.
We will soon add more articles, including salaries for Hadoop engineers, Hadoop books and training, list of most influential Hadoop people, success stories, jobs, events etc.
New Data Science Central Acquisition
Data Science Central has acquired MessagingNews.com, a leading source of information for messaging professionals. This is separate from our other DSC channels, although Dr. Granville, co-founder, will occasionally publish articles that are relevant to both communities, for instance: new algorithm to compress terabytes of highly redundant web or email data, Algorithm to automatically categorize and prioritize email, and Better spam, copyright infringement and plagiarism detection.
