For this year's BCVS in Portland, I co-chaired a Big Data Workshop session. We had four wonderful speakers (Peipei Ping from UCLA; Karen Ross from Georgetown University; Vidya Venkatraman from Cedars Sinai and Mike MacCoss from University of Washington) who talked about the impact of data science on multiple ‘omics fields.
AHA was generous to produce a highlight video for the session in which I interviewed Dr. Karen Ross, an expert in data science and text mining, about her experience with big data and how it has impacted her research programs.
Dr. Ross also talks about the major challenges that researchers face today in data science and some developments on the horizon that might help advance the field. Play the video below:
