The future is in Open Data Sets

The idea of “open data” is not new. Many researchers in the past had followed the notion that Science is a public enterprise and that certain data should be openly available [1] and it is recently also a big topic in the biomedical domain [2], [3]; e.g.. the British Medical Journal (BMJ) started a big […]

Machine Learning in Nature

Apart from occassional news entries, comptuer science rarely makes it into Nature. A quick count in the Web of Science results in 33 articles, the last one – a year ago – by Ekert, A. & Renner, R. 2014. The ultimate physical limits of privacy. Nature, 507, (7493), 443-447, and the most prominent one surely […]

Feb, 17, 2015 > Seminar Talk by Hubert Wagner

Title: Topological analysis of text data. Lecturer: Hubert WAGNER <expertise> Abstract: In this talk an ongoing effort will be described to apply persistent homology in the area of text data mining. Persistent homology is the main tool of topological data analysis. In essence, it allows to robustly describe the shape of a data set, and […]

January, 27, 2015, Seminar Talk by Barbara Di Fabio

Title: Geometric-topological tools for shape description Lecturer: Barbara DI FABIO Abstract: In shape comparison a widely used scheme is to measure the dissimilarity between signatures associated with each shape rather than matching shapes. In this context, computational topology plays an important role, offering a series of techniques and measures with an extremely high abstraction power. […]

Nature repository for openly accessible scientific data from all disciplines

Nature Scientific Data is a recently launched open-access, online-only journal for openly accessible scientific data from all disciplines. The articles are called Data Descriptors, and combine traditional narrative content with curated descriptions of research data to support reproducibility, as this may accelerate scientific discovery, see: http://www.nature.com/sdata/ Goudiaby, V., Zuidema, P. A. & Mohren, G. M. […]
