Cleaning your data with OpenRefine (10/21)

Time: October 21, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Location: Virtual

Target Audience: Faculty

Research Office: Office of the Vice President for Research

OpenRefine is an open sourced, java-based, powerful tool that lets you clean your messy data easily and in ways Excel and other traditional spreadsheet software programs cannot. In this 2 hour hands-on workshop you will learn how to explore your data, how to clean and transform it, and how to automate processes. Go beyond “find and replace” to find all variations of a term (i.e., UC, U.C., Univ. of Cinci., University of Cincinnati, U Cincinatti) to correct errors, to group like categories together, to convert columns to new formats, to make mistakes, and to fix them.
 
Participants should follow the directions to download the latest stable version of OpenRefine at this URL openrefine.org… 

Note – you may need to install Java separately.

Please follow instructions to connect to the session in the Reminder Email sent by the FEC.

Intro To UC's Advanced Research Computing (ARC) Resources: HPC Computing/Analysis Tools For Research & Education (10/22)

Time: October 22, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Location: Langsam Library Room 475

Target Audience: Faculty

Research Office: Office of the Vice President for Research

The rapid advancement and introduction of new processing technologies for computing have facilitated the convergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), Data Analytics and Big Data and the High-Performance Computing (HPC) platforms into a ‘modern HPC’ environment which includes batch, interactive and web-based computing tools to meet a diverse community of researcher’s needs.

In this introduction to modern HPC tools available in UC’s Advanced Research Computing (ARC) center, users will get hands on experience submitting a batch job, running a job that uses containers, and, if time allows, scheduling and executing a job that uses the cluster GPU nodes.

We will provide a brief introduction to the cluster’s web front-end where users can interactively compute on the cluster, including easy-to-use Jupyter Notebooks or RStudio for education and research.

UC's 6th Annual Data Day (11/5 - 11/6)

Time: November 5, 12:00 AM - November 6, 12:00 AM

Location: Virtual

Target Audience: Faculty, Staff and Students

Research Office: Office of the Vice President for Research

Researchers producing and using data face similar but unique, challenges in data management, data sharing, reproducible research, and preservation. Researchers have a tremendous responsibility to ensure that the data they produce, and share is equitable as it impacts individuals and communities the world over. When data is collected and shared incorrectly, it can advance inequities, bias, and even violence. Researchers must be aware of methods to mitigate these and how to generate data that is free of bias, is equitable, and inclusive to avoid any miscommunication and/or ambiguity regarding their data. Data Day 2021 highlights these challenges and showcases solutions and opportunities in which we can re-examine data through an equity lens.
