Become a data scientist without an expensive computer!!!

In my house, Jeff Leak is a hero. Maybe in a lot of other houses.  I've never met him, but I've seen him speak and taken an online course he taught.  The dude does awesome science and somehow makes it approachable to more people than you'd believe possible.

Okay -- so this is right in line with stuff we're working on in Frederick -- how the heck do you become a data scientist if 24 patient samples is 300GB of Lumos data and you've got a PC with 2GB of RAM? Answer? No idea.

It's even worse for nextGen. 220GB PER PATIENT??? WHAT???

The Leak lab has knocked down one of these barriers by enabling real life Data Science on inexpensive ChromeBooks. Seriously -- you should check this out!
