Fall Data Workshops

With a nod to both this year’s One Book, One Northwestern selection, “The Signal and The Noise” by Nate Silver, and Weinberg’s recently announced interdisciplinary strategy of “Data, Culture, and Nature”, the MMLC is offering a series of workshops to look at topics of data organization, visualization, and analysis. All faculty, graduate students, and staff are welcome.
