Professor Rich Wolski co-authored the article "Doing Data Science on the Shoulders of Giants: The Value of Open Source Softward for the Data Science Community" and it was recently published by Harvard Data Science Review.
As an open access platform of the Harvard Data Science Initiative, the Harvard Data Science Review (HDSR) features foundational thinking, research milestones, educational innovations, and major applications. It aims to publish contents that help to define and shape data science as a scientifically rigorous and globally impactful multidisciplinary field based on the principled and purposed production, processing, parsing and analysis of data. HDSR aims to be a new kind of digital platform that reflects the synergistic nature of data science. By uniting the strengths of a premier research journal, a cutting-edge educational publication, and a popular magazine, HDSR will provide a crossroads at which fundamental data science research and education intersect directly with societally-important applications from industry, governments, NGOs, and others. The platform will foster dialogues among researchers, educators and practitioners about data science research, practice, literacy, and workforce development, thereby enhancing and creating efforts to advance our global community in the rapidly-evolving digital age. In short, HDSR aims to be “everything data science and data science for everyone.”
