The BD2K Guide to the Fundamentals of Data Science Online Lecture Series

The NIH Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) program (https://datascience.nih.gov/bd2k) is pleased to announce The BD2K Guide to the Fundamentals of Data Science, a series of online lectures given by experts from across the country covering a range of diverse topics in data science. This course is an introductory overview that assumes no prior knowledge or understanding of data science.

This lecture series is a joint effort between the BD2K Training Coordinating Center (BD2KTCC, http://www.bigdatau.org/), the BD2K Centers Coordination Center (BD2KCCC, https://bd2kccc.org/), and the NIH Office of the Associate Director of Data Science (ADDS, https://datascience.nih.gov/adds). For up-to-date information about the series and to view archived presentations, go to: http://www.bigdatau.org/data-science-seminars.

The series begins Friday, September 9th, and will run all year, once per week, on Fridays from 12:00pm – 1:00pm ET. For additional event information, contact Crystal Stewart (crystal.stewart@loni.usc.edu).
