Carney Workshop: “The RENKU data science platform” - Christine Choirat, Ph.D.

Thursday, November 14, 2019

12:00pm - 1:30pm

164 Angell Street

RENKU is an open data science platform, produced through a joint venture of EPFL and ETH Zurich, that fosters research reproducibility, reusability, and collaboration, along with secure, federated, and discoverable data access. RENKU supports versioning of data and code, and tracks which results were produced by whom and when. Users can retrieve history and data provenance, go back in time to every step of published science, and reuse previously built tools in an infrastructure agnostic environment.
