Project Jupyter is an open-source project that exists to develop software, open standards and services for interactive and reproducible computing. The main application developed is the Jupyter Notebook, a web application that allows users to create documents that combine live code with narrative text, mathematical equations and visualizations. Since its creation in 2011, the Jupyter Notebook has become a widely-used open standard for developing, sharing, communicating and reproducing computational work in scientific computing and data science.
In this talk, Granger overviews Project Jupyter and its open-source software and open standards for interactive and exploratory computing. There are many examples across industries, disciplines and organizations that will illustrate Jupyter’s main principles. Learn about Jupyter’s current work on JupyterLab, JupyterHub and Binder and see how it is leading to
- new challenges with large scale data science within complex organizations.
- legal, ethical and technical questions regarding sensitive data.
- new opportunities for human-centered design of machine learning systems.
