Big Data Science resources

• The Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) Department of Medical Informatics & Clinical Epidemiology (DMICE) and Library are pleased to announce the release of open educational resources (OERs) in the area of Biomedical Big Data Science. Funded by a grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) Program, OERs have been produced that can be downloaded, used, and repurposed for a variety of educational audiences by both learners and educators. Development of the OERs is an ongoing process, but they have reached the point where a critical mass of the content is being made available for use and to obtain feedback. The OERs are intended to be flexible and customizable and their use or repurpose is encouraged. They can be used as “out of the box” courses for students or as materials for educators to use in courses, training programs, and other learning activities. The goal is to create 32 module topics. Currently, 20 of the modules are available for download and use. For additional information, contact Bill Hersh at: hersh@ohsu.edu.

Also all on GitHub: https://github.com/OHSUBD2K/

I want to see this one: BDK32 Displaying Confidence and Uncertainty

it doesn’t exist yet, so I have to remember to check back when it does.

S Few on expressing proportions

Always makes me think: http://www.perceptualedge.com/articles/visual_business_intelligence/expressing_proportions.pdf

Not sure I agree so much with this edition, but I like that he is taking on those goofy unit charts (and I missed the Unit Charts are for Kids essay the first time around http://www.perceptualedge.com/articles/visual_business_intelligence/unit_charts_are_for_kids.pdf )

Beyond the Sum-Difference Plot

Bland–Altman plot
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bland–Altman plot example
A Bland–Altman plot (Difference plot) in analytical chemistry and biostatistics is a method of data plotting used in analyzing the agreement between two different assays. It is identical to a Tukey mean-difference plot, the name by which it is known in other fields, but was popularised in medical statistics by J. Martin Bland and Douglas G. Altman.[1][2]
