Openness is one of the hallmarks of modern data science – openness of data, of code, and of methods. By sharing our successes and failures with others, we raise our collective intelligence level beyond what we could each achieve individually.
This open dynamic is driving the growth of Global Association for Research Methods and Data Science (GRMDS), a budding AI ecosystem composed of 35,000 data science professionals. GRMDS is emerging as a good source of information for solving real-world data science problems. The platform, which was created by data scientist Alex Liu in 2009, started small, with members assembling at meetups and getting together at user conferences.
