6 Data & Social Justice Dan Phiffer 11:00 AM May 8 2019 Main Sanctuary https://csvconf.com/speakers/#dan-phiffer 2019-05-08T11:00:00 This talk will provide an overview of the course I'm currently teaching at Bennington College called Data & Social Justice. I'll outline some of the issues my students have been organizing around, as well as techniques they've developed for doing outreach, using data visualization to support their causes, and describing how I've supported their efforts through my own faculty activism. n.b., I'm only halfway through the semester, but there is already plenty of material for a talk. https://csvconf.com/img/speakers-2019/dphiffer.jpg
7 Let’s ROR together - building open research organization identifiers Maria Gould 11:00 AM May 8 2019 Fuller Hall https://csvconf.com/speakers/#maria-gould 2019-05-08T11:00:00   https://csvconf.com/img/speakers-2019/comma.jpg
8 What's Next after Notebooks? Alexander Morley 11:00 AM May 8 2019 Daisy Bingham Room https://csvconf.com/speakers/#alexander-morley 2019-05-08T11:00:00 Jane is a data scientist. Jane uses Jupyter notebooks as her working environment, and her presentation environment. These “computational essays” allow Jane to present her methods and her results to her colleagues at the same time. Jane is happy with this. But sometimes it’s difficult for Jane to share notebooks with her colleagues, and even harder for them to re-mix or re-use parts of the notebook, or to share their changes back to Jane. And sometimes Jane finds it hard to explain the flow of a particular notebook, or how different notebooks are tied together. There’s no provision for keeping things modular. First, I will discuss a few up-and-coming projects that are leveraging the power of new web technologies and faster browsers to solve all of fictional Jane’s problems, and more. Second, I will present a prototype for my own solution that is also web-based, and draws inspiration from some now-uncool graphical programming languages. https://csvconf.com/img/speakers-2019/amorley.jpg
34 Open Infrastructure for Open Science: How Binder Powers an Open Stack in the Cloud Chris Holdgraf 11:00 AM May 9 2019 Main Sanctuary https://csvconf.com/speakers/#chris-holdgraf 2019-05-09T11:00:00 This talk will discuss the Binder Project in the context of open data and open science, two primary use-cases that have driven the project. It will cover the basics of the Binder Project, such as how to define a reproducible repository to share with others. It will then discuss one of Binder's core goals, which is to build on open standards to facilitate the use of *many* open languages, interfaces, etc. Finally I'll discuss how BinderHub, the technology behind a Binder deployment, is itself open source and deployable anywhere. I'll finish by describing a goal of distributed, federated BinderHubs that provide a network of reproducible data analytics environments. https://csvconf.com/img/speakers-2019/choldgraf.jpg
35 The Data to Policy Project: Using Data to Build More Equitable Communities Melissa Mejia 11:00 AM May 9 2019 Fuller Hall https://csvconf.com/speakers/#melissa-mejia 2019-05-09T11:00:00 The Data to Policy Project (D2P) is an initiative creating meaningful learning experiences for students by using analysis of open data to generate equity and evidence-based policy proposals addressing local community needs. D2P is integrated into credit-bearing courses where students explore issues like policing and affordable housing in the Denver region. Over the course of a semester, students find, cite, clean, analyze, and visualize data to identify gaps or problems in policing or affordable housing, create policy proposals that address what they found, then create a research poster to communicate their findings. We encourage a critical approach to data literacy that questions the objectivity and neutrality of data and situate it in a socio-political context. The project culminates in a D2P Symposium where students present their research to their peers, faculty, staff, and community members. By focusing on student-initiated concerns and using real data to try and address them, D2P forms a connection between the courses students take and the communities they live in, increasing its meaning and impact. We also partner with local community organizations, governments, and nonprofits to identify and frame the research questions students explore. Our goal is to intentionally include community voices so that the research we work on is relevant, context-specific, and in the interest of the community it will impact. This presentation will communicate the challenges and benefits of this kind of work, how it can be replicated in other contexts, and invite feedback on how to improve the project. https://csvconf.com/img/speakers-2019/mmejia.jpg
36 Should Real Estate Data be Open? Andy Terrel 11:00 AM May 9 2019 Daisy Bingham Room https://csvconf.com/speakers/#andy-terrel 2019-05-09T11:00:00 While aggregators of multiple listing service (MLS) data have opened up much of the process of finding a house on the internet, the data is still closed. The MLS quotes personal security as the primary reason. What data is being protected and what is the impact of that decision? As a consumer of data from numerous sources, REX has routinely been denied access to this data. In this case we make the case for all the societal benefits for opening this data and the implications. https://csvconf.com/img/speakers-2019/aterrel.jpg
