Physicists Find Way to Address Field’s “Big Data” Gap

A team from NYU, the University of Washington, and the University of California, Berkeley has developed a new kind of interactive workshop in data science for researchers at multiple stages of their careers.

Physics has become a big-data endeavor. Each night, high-definition cameras mounted to telescopes collect terabytes of data about objects in the sky. Each day, scientists sequence the genomes of people, animals, plants and microbes for biomedical and evolutionary research. Each year, the Large Hadron Collider produces 30 petabytes of data on particle collisions.
