Title: Democratizing data science: Balancing flexibility and usability for Scientific Applications
Increasingly, scientists are being asked to perform sophisticated data analysis - in a sense become data scientists themselves. However, existing data visualization and exploration capabilities have enabled an increased access to data, use of sophisticated statistical tools to extract knowledge from data remains the purview of a select few data analysis experts. The fundamental chasm between the scientists that understand the background of the data and the statisticians that understand the tools to analyze the data continues to challenge scientific advances in life sciences. We will present a novel data analysis pipelining tool which enables even non-expert users to create complex scientific analysis pipelines. Having been developed entirely inside TIBCO Spotfire, the system leverages the full interactivity, connectivity, extensibility, and ease of use of the world’s leading research data analysis platform. The approach has been successfully used in scientific domains as diverse as screening, translational medicine and lead discovery (incl. SAR analysis).
