I am a scientist, and I like data
Logic seems to dictate that this makes me a data scientist! As such, I am interested in using the scientific method to observe and measure a variety of phenomena in order to formulate and test hypotheses about nature.
Every scientist needs tools, and possibly a laboratory or controlled environment to pursue experiments. At The Data Science Lab we will use the tools of open data and open source software, as well as a laptop, to perform what I would call “table-top experiments with data”.
Let’s go exploring! We never know what we might find out.
