The Case for Reproducible Data Science

Reproducibility is a cornerstone of the scientific method and ensures that tests and experiments can be reproduced by different teams using the same method. In the context of data science, reproducibility means that everything needed to recreate the model and its results such as data, tools, libraries, frameworks, programming languages and operating systems, have been captured, so with little effort the identical results are produced regardless of how much time has passed since the original project.

Seeking Reproducibility within Social Science: Search and Discovery

Julia Lane, NYU Professor, Economist and cofounder of the Coleridge Initiative, presented “Where’s the Data: A New Approach to Social Science Search & Discovery” at Rev. Lane described the approach that the Coleridge Initiative is taking to address the science reproducibility challenge. The approach is to provide remote access for government analysts and researchers to confidential data in a secure data facility and to build analytical capacity and collaborations through an Applied Data Analytics training program. This article provides a distilled summary and a written transcript of Lane’s talk at Rev. Many thanks to Julia Lane for providing feedback on this post prior to publication.

Data Scientist? Programmer? Are They Mutually Exclusive?

This Domino Data Science Field Note blog post provides highlights of Hadley Wickham’s ACM Chicago talk, “You Can’t Do Data Science in a GUI”. In his talk, Wickham advocates that, unlike a GUI, using code provides reproducibility, data provenance, and the ability to track changes so that data scientists have the ability to see how the data analysis has evolved. As the creator of ggplot2, it is not a surprise that Wickham also advocates the use of visualizations and models together to help data scientists find the real signals within their data. This blog post also provides clips from the original video and follows the Creative Commons license affiliated with the original video recording.
