Project Jupyter: From Computational Notebooks to Large Scale Data Science with Sensitive Data with Brian Granger

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 by the project 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 I will give an overview of Project Jupyter and its open-source software and open standards for interactive and exploratory computing. Examples of its usage across a broad range of industries, disciplines and organizations will be used to illustrate the main ideas upon which Jupyter is founded. I will end by sketching our current work on JupyterLab, JupyterHub, and Binder and show how it is leading to 1) new challenges with large scale data science within complex organizations and 2) legal, ethical and technical questions regarding sensitive data.
