Human Learning: Training the Next Generation of Data Scientists & Informaticians to Leverage Massive Cloud Data Ecosystems
Recorded on: 07/21/2020 @ 12:00 PM EST Location: Online
Data science and bioinformatics has the potential to steer the next decades of translational research, spanning prevention to more effective therapies. In fact, training and expanding the next generation of data scientists has been identified as a key strategic area by the NIH. Effectively training data scientists requires overcoming a number of obstacles.
During this webinar, we will show how data analysis ecosystems can be leveraged to set the foundation for training data scientists and informaticians. Cloud platforms bring together scalable compute resources, cutting-edge analysis tools, accessible and curated data, educational materials, and intuitive workspaces. Instructors and students can work together through each analysis step and easily evaluate completed work. Further, platforms enable multiple domain experts to analyze data and use diverse visualizations to interpret results.
Key points you will learn:
- Challenges in training data scientists or informaticians for applications in genomics, imaging, phenotype, supportive care, or other clinical data.
- How Seven Bridges has leveraged data analysis ecosystems (Platforms) since 2016 to support the missions of educating and democratizing access to data and resources.
- The key features of all platforms powered by Seven Bridges that empower the research community also provide an excellent foundation for training bioinformaticians and data scientists.
