A week ago I traveled with two of my colleagues to India where we participated in a multi-day workshop for a large-scale multi-continent collaborative data-science initiative that was just getting underway. No one at the conference talked about Kubrick’s film, but there was plenty of talk of “black boxes.”

Mapping Science Networks and Projects to Limit the Rise in Global Temperatures

When the United Nations released a report earlier this year that a catastrophic two-degree Celsius (3.6-degree Fahrenheit) rise in global average temperatures is expected to occur in the next decade, there was a media firestorm about the dire predictions. You know who wasn’t surprised? Climate scientists. (Read about the difference a half-a-degree can make.)

Finding Balance on the Spectrum Between Lone Geniuses and Team Scientists

Foreword by Jill Macchiaverna, Exaptive Media Specialist:

When we came across this podcast that so beautifully and concisely addressed many of the challenges our collaborators face, we knew we had to find a way to share it. A huge thank you to AIBS and BioScience Talks for allowing us to post their September 12, 2018, episode called “Big Data is Synergized by Team and Open Science.”
