The Moore-Sloan Data Science Environments (MSDSE) program, established jointly by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, was launched in 2014 to foster and enhance data-intensive discovery at academic institutions. The program initially funded three data science environments for five years (recently extended for an additional two years): the eScience […]

“Being right” by Kellie MacPhee, 2018 Data Science for Social Good Fellow
In mathematics, right and wrong are clearly distinguishable.
Sure, there are questions of style and clarity which make […]

RESEARCH SCIENTIST FUNDING OPPORTUNITY
University of Washington eScience Institute
Location: Seattle Campus
The eScience Institute empowers researchers and students in all fields to answer fundamental questions through the use of large, complex, and noisy data. As the hub of data-intensive discovery on campus, we lead […]
The 2017 UW Data Science Career Fair will be held on Monday, October 23 from noon to 5 p.m. in the HUB Ballroom.
Multiple UW departments and programs are working together to create this opportunity for undergraduates, graduate students, and postdocs working in data science to connect with companies and research labs looking for permanent employees […]
Molly King of Stanford University along with colleagues from NYU and the UW, including Data Science Fellow Jevin West, recently wrote a paper investigating differences in self-citation practices between men and women. Using over 1.5 million papers in the JSTOR database published between 1779-2011, they found that men self-cite 56% more often than women do. […]
In May 2016, the eScience Institute hosted a DataDive organized by DataKind and sponsored by Microsoft. The event followed a city of Seattle commitment to Vision Zero, an effort aimed at reducing traffic fatalities and serious injuries to zero. The data scientist volunteers who participated in this event worked on an exploratory analysis and modeling […]
While good graphics are considered a critical component of an effective scientific paper, literature search engines have historically been text or citation based.
This week the MIT Technology Review highlighted the first visual search engine for scientific diagrams – Viziometrics. The team behind this pioneering project includes Electrical Engineering Ph.D. student Po-Shen Lee, iSchool professor and eScience […]
