Data science is an inter-disciplinary field that uses scientific methods, processes, algorithms and systems
to extract knowledge and insights from structured and unstructured data. Data science is related to data mining and big data.

Summary The Science of Science (SciSci) is an emerging, trans-disciplinary approach for using large and disparate data -sets to study the emergence, dissemination, and impact of scientific research (Fortunato et al.). Bibliometric databases such as the Web of

Global River Radar Altimetry Time Series (GRRATS): new river elevation earth science data records for the hydrologic community
free download

The capabilities of radar altimetry to measure inland water bodies are well established and several river altimetry 15 datasets are available. Here we produced a globally-distributed dataset, the Global River Radar Altimeter Time Series (GRRATS), using Envisat and Ocean

Metadata for Administrative and Social Science Data
free download

Data are valuable but finding the right data is often difficult. This chapter reviews current approaches and issues for metadata about numeric data and data sets that facilitate the identification of relevant data . In addition, the chapter reviews how metadata support Online communities are now extremely numerous. Most of them being multifaceted, dynamic, and rapidly evolving, they are of the utmost interest for social science researchers. One of the special characteristics of these communities is the production of numerical traces

Data science : fundamental principles

We live in a world where we collect huge amounts of data . Traditional methods and techniques are no longer sufficient to process them. In addition to the sophisticated development of computers, new ways of processing data are evolving. Data Science is a The Italian Research Conference on Digital Libraries (IRCDL) is an annual forum for the Italian research community to discuss the research topics pertaining to digital libraries and related technical, practical, and social issues both on the computer science and the Data science is the discipline which involves the study of information sources, representations, processing and finally conversion into valuable resources. This resource is an integral part development of business and other decision-making strategies. This

NumPy/SciPy Recipes for Data Science : Information Theoretic Vector Quantization
free download

Abstract In this note, we discuss how to implement the idea of information theoretic vector quantization using NumPy. Since our code is properly vectorized, it shows decent runtime performance I. INTRODUCTION The term vector quantization (VQ) commonly refers to the reasonable idea

Community detection and non-linear dimension reduction techniques in data science
free download

We studied two different approaches to interpreting high dimensional data sets: community detection and non-linear dimension reduction. Under community detection, we reviewed spectral clustering as presented in . We also examined the diffusion maps algorithm, a

Foundations for Private, Fair, and Robust Data Science
free download

Much of modern machine learning and statistics is based on the following paradigm: the algorithm designer specifies an objective function, and then optimizes it over some class of models. This is a powerful methodology, but while it generally results in a tool that is
