Post Summaries

European Data Science Academy
We are looking for a researcher to work on a new EU funded project the European Data Science Academy which aims to bridge the current data science skills gap through three main activities:
- Demand analysis: using data mining tools scrutinising thousands of job descriptions and technology blogs to gain a thorough understanding of the skills required in industry (which will vary by sector and region). See [1] for a small demo we created for the proposal.
- Data science curricula: high-quality, multilingual and multimodal training materials (eBooks, slides, video lectures, online demonstrators and showcases, data sets, online courses) that will be usable on different platforms. See [2, 3] for previous and current projects we build upon.
- Training delivery and learning analytics: To maximize outreach we will make use of some of the most popular training delivery platforms worldwide, including VideoLectures.NET<http://videolectures.net/> and iTunes U (since 2008 OU materials have been downloaded over 65 million times). We will use machine learning tools to develop an analytics dashboard focused on learning experiences.

This project aims to support patients with cardio and renal problems by combining personal monitoring and medical data with personal social media data and generic sources of ground medical knowledge. This data will be used to provide patient treatment management services based on real-time personalised visualisations. We have already set up a platform whereby data from a range of personal activity monitors (e.g. FitBit [4] or MisFit Shine [5]) are downloaded into an RDF store.

Any queries about the posts can be directed to me.
