Earlier this week, we held our third annual Data Science Faire to celebrate data science at BIDS and UC Berkeley. Like last year, we invited poster/demo presenters from around campus to showcase their data science projects, welcoming participants from Research IT, Digital Humanities, the Space Sciences Laboratory, the California Digital Libary, and many more.
We also featured six lightning talks (see videos below) from BIDS fellows on topics ranging from semantic representation in the brain to lessons learned in creating open source software. We capped off the afternoon with a keynote from Lucas Merrill Brown, Data Scientist and Digital Expert at the US Digital Service at the White House.
Thank you to all our participants and guests for making this year's Data Science Faire another success!
