Reproducible Research Workshop Series

Spring 2022

In Spring 2022, DSI will offer a workshop series on Reproducible Research, in association with the Oregon Data Science Collaborative. This series of workshops will introduce tools and practices for conducting reproducible research with quantitative data. Topics covered include principles of reproducible workflows, using Git for version control and GitHub for collaboration, and best practices for project management. These foundational data science skills can improve research practices across disciplines and support efficient and effective collaboration.

Workshops are open to graduate students, postdocs, and researchers at University of Oregon, Oregon State University, and Portland State University. Please visit for more information and to register.

The Unfinished Business of the Internet (Spring 2019)

There are many unfinished aspects of the Internet, including safety, security, privacy, and accessibility. In this talk, Dr. Cerf covered two major areas of focus: taking the Internet to places where it isn't available or affordable and dealing with the side-effects of machine learning and artificial intelligence. Widely known as one of the "Fathers of the Internet," Vinton G. Cerf is the co-designer of the TCP/IP protocols and the fundamental architecture of the Internet. He is currently vice president and chief Internet evangelist for Google.

Nvidia DLI Training Workshop (Fall 2018)

The Nvidia Deep Learning Institute (DLI) trained developers, data scientists, and researchers to use artificial intelligence and accelerated computing to solve real-world problems across a wide range of domains. Sponsored by the NSF Center for Big Learning and Research Advanced Computing Services (RACS).
