Using the ‘What-If Tool’ to investigate Machine Learning models

This blog post by Parul Pandey has a nice description of the resources available around the Google "What-if Tool". 

What-If Tool is an interactive visual tool that is designed to investigate the Machine Learning models. Abbreviated as WIT, it enables the understanding of a Classification or Regression model by enabling people to examine, evaluate, and compare machine learning models. Due to its user-friendly interface and less dependency on complex coding, everyone from a developer, a product manager, a researcher or a student can use it for their purpose.

Be sure to see the essay titled, "Playing with AI Fairness" by David Weinberger which talks about using the What-if tool environment to "try on five different types of fairness". I found it to be an accessible introduction to the different approaches to making real world decisions with ML tools.

Teach Data Science Blog

A roadmap to recent developments in teaching data science

In this blog, we’re hoping to create a roadmap for faculty development that will ease the learning curve and help busy people incorporate new tools and approaches into their teaching.

Each day during the summer we intend to add a new entry on a given topic, along with a short overview of why it is interesting and how it can be applied to teaching. We intend to make the entries short, succinct, and easy to comprehend with the goal that they will motivate you to dive deeper.

MathJax: A JavaScript display engine for mathematics that works in all browsers

The MathJax Consortium is a joint venture of the American Mathematical Society (AMS) and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) to advance mathematical and scientific content on the web.

Core Goals

The core of the MathJax project is the development of its state-of-the-art, open source, JavaScript platform for display of mathematics. Our key design goals are

  • high-quality display of mathematics notation in all browsers
  • no special browser setup required
  • support for LaTeX, MathML and other equation markup directly in the HTML source.
  • an extensible, modular design with a rich API for easy integration into web applications.
  • support for accessibility, copy and paste and other rich functionality
  • interoperability with other applications and math-aware search.

Data Matters – Ethics, Data, and International Research Collaboration in a Changing World: Proceedings of a Workshop

A workshop held on March 14-16, 2018, in Washington, DC explored the changing opportunities and risks of data management and use across disciplinary domains. The third workshop in a series, participants gathered to examine advisory principles for consideration when developing international research agreements, in the pursuit of highlighting promising practices for sustaining and enabling international research collaborations at the highest ethical level possible. The intent of the workshop was to explore, through an ethical lens, the changing opportunities and risks associated with data management and use across disciplinary domains—all within the context of international research agreements. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.

Smithsonian Data Science Lab postdoctoral fellowships

The Smithsonian Institution Data Science Lab (datascience.si.edu) housed within the Office of the Chief Information Officer (SI-OCIO) in Washington, DC, is seeking two postdoctoral fellows to conduct independent research and digital humanities scholarship in collaboration with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and the Smithsonian American Women’s History Initiative.

The Data Science Lab was recently formed in response to the dramatic increase in all forms of digital data across the Smithsonian (19 museums, 9 research centers, and a zoo). We seek to build collaborations both across Smithsonian units, as well as universities and other institutions. Members of our group work on a variety of data-intensive research topics, including biodiversity genomics and machine learning applications of digitized museum collections.

Please see https://datascience.si.edu/digital-humanities-postdoctoral-fellowships for details, and email (SI-DataScience@si.edu) or tweet (@SIDataScience) with questions!

Earth Lab Earth Analytics Education Initiative at CU Boulder

The Earth Lab Earth Analytics Education Initiative at the University of Colorado -- Boulder is building an innovative program that provides core in-market demand technical skills at the intersection of Earth and data science to undergraduate, graduate and professional students. The program includes formal courses, workshops, career development events with industry partners, paid undergraduate internships, an open online learning portal with global reach, and a professional certificate in Earth data analytics, one of the first of its kind in the country. We are committed to expanding the reach of Earth data science education for students across varying academic, professional, socio-economic and geographic dimensions to ensure broad accessibility to novel curriculum. All courses are offered through both online and traditional options, allowing students to participate in-person, online in real-time, or asynchronously by reviewing materials at their own pace.
