OnCorps is proud to announce its sponsorship of the Datahack@Yale February 18 and 19, 2017. The primary function of this event is to bring together junior scholars from all levels (undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral) who are interested in network science, know the tools and methods, and want to solve problems and produce useful insights in a highly collaborative and dynamic environment. The purpose of the datahack is to identify who can best answer questions without getting lost in the data. Day two of the event (February 19) will be devoted to data visualization: visualizing team solutions with the help of design mentors, and judging the best project solutions. Students are invited to use their skills on real-world problems in need of real solutions using data sets provided by sponsors.
Network science is the study of the structure and function of graphs, networks, and other network data. It involves the collection, management, analysis, interpretation, and presentation of network data. The field of network science aims to develop new tools and techniques to answer questions about interconnected data. Network data poses unique analytic challenges, and network scientists leverage many data analysis methods to answer questions about the interconnected world.
