PyData Triangle Q4-2017 Meetup

Nov 1, 2017 · Morrisville, United States of America


* Matthew McCormick, PhD (Kitware, Inc)  - An overview of multi-dimensional, multi-modal, image registration methods

* Nick Bollweg and Tony Fast (Bastille) - powers (of)ten and the relative size of things in the science

Description: Science, and its application to engineering, policy, and business, ultimately affects people and communities. In solving new problems, while we may make use of ever more data and computers, we must also have greater impact and reach for people.  Open science, along with open source software and open data, continues to expand the frontiers of innovation.
Join Nick and Tony in traversing the powers of ten with data-driven stories.  Experts in visual problem solving with Jupyter, Nick and Tony have explored problems across technology siloes, length scales, and disciplines.  Together, we hope to provide a rough map of what might be on open science’s frontier of reusable, computable information, or, failing that, a style guide for any citizen scientist looking to access new powers often from the cutting edges of open science and software.
In 1977 IBM released Powers of Ten, a nine-minute documentary illustrating the state-of-the-art in science from the edge of the universe, to early views into complex biological organisms, and into subatomic matter in their cell's nuclei.
The last two generations of science and engineering have continued to decode more complex social and physical relationships in the universe.  Computers and the open web are redefining modern science, enabling diverse communities new access to raw data, information insights, and knowledge sharing.  In this culture shift, pixels rather than paper propel science forward.
Today’s scientist is less information-constrained. Often, their domain is a data-rich environment with information and approaches adopted from other scientific communities.  Nick and Tony will discuss working together to solve multi-scale problems and highlight how the power of accessible, computable information, powered by open source software, has changed narratives in science.
