Introduction to Scientific Data Informatics
Detailed Course Summary:
An Introduction to Scientific Data Informatics: in which we
examine the information properties of scientific data, explore
criteria to appraise some properties of scientific data sets,
take an expedition into the Semantic Web and the growing network
of Linked Data, examine issues of long-term management of, and
access to, scientific data, and endeavor to use semantic markup
on a report on an inquiry-based project.
In addition, this term we will have hands-on experience with some
data science tools, and informatics exercises using R Libraries.
