Volunteer Citizens -- Please introduce yourself here

Hi!

If you want to contribute to citizen science, by donating your manual labor, please introduce yourself by replying to this post.

Tasks may include

  • counting stuff
  • delineating stuff
  • flagging unexpected stuff

When people bring data, they will give you examples of what it is they are after.

For successful citizen science projects outside COVID, check out

Bernhard Schölkopf - working on machine learning and causal inference and trying to help.

Bernhard, I think you qualify as data scientist also :wink:

I am an administrative assistant at Heidelberg University. All I have to offer is manual labour, but I’d really like to help.

…and that is a lot!

Some tasks are still solved fastest by hand; and all of deep learning thrives on ground truth which needs to be generated at first – a mission for citizen science!

Hi, I am Gabriella Mosca,
I do FEM modeling for biology, so I guess I can help with C++ programming, counting stuff, plotting stuff, fitting stuff.
If somebody needs computer power to run ML/AI algorithms, I have 3 NVidia graphics card, but I can not write ML/AI codes myself (can probably modify adjust them though)
I am not a data analyst/scientist

Hello! My name is NK, and I am in undergraduate research assistant with psychology, public health, and biology experience. I do a lot of data cleaning, collecting, and categorization- really good at counting, delineating, and flagging stuff! I’m happy to help with anything I can.

Hello NK – great, thanks!

Everyone can create tags, and while we do not have data yet – this is something where you could probably be of a lot of help: to find a good set once heterogeneous data is coming in. For now, the status quo is this: https://discourse.data-against-covid.org/tags

Hi! I’m Michał Maciażek, student and aspiring data analyst located in Poland. Even though i dont have any real or professional analitical experience i will offer as much as i can. I could help with simple T-SQL tasks or do any “manual labor”. I know my way around PowerBI if it would be helpful in anyway.

Excited to help! I’m still poking around the site to familiarize myself with the forum, but I haven’t figured out how to create tags. I’m a new user-- is this a feature unlocked at higher trust levels?

Hi folks.

David here.

I’ve done a number of Udacity data science courses and a couple of Kaggle competitions. Enough to know what I am talking about, little enough that given the volunteers in the other room I’ll leave it to experts to be hands on.

For specific skills brought, I am an IT enterprise architect and quantitative analyst. I’ve done some project management, some UI design and critical model review. I have good C# skills and reasonable python and VBA. Generally good at seeing real world problems and understanding what the really important bits are that need to be captured by the maths.

Hi!
I’m Rhita, a student and an AI for signal processing specialist in Canada. Mostly working in time series processing (NLP, Next action prediction) and have the same experience on artificial vision. I’m happy to help with data analysis (Python), solve predictive problems with machine learning models and also with deep models using Pytorch, tenserflow.
Thanks for this initiative!

Hi all, Fred here, have been working in database management and data quality for 3+ decades. MariaDB (MySQL) and Perl are main tools. Comfortable with datasets into the multi-gigabyte range. While currently working on climate and energy policy for an NGO in the Northwest US, still doing small data projects. Last major data project was DBA for a national presidential campaign in 2008. Have reasonable familiarity with statistical analysis but my focus is on the raw data. Data quality is the foundation of robust analysis – have developed efficient processing for distributions, data gaps, outliers, and most especially linkage (matching) of different datasets (many issues with that).
