Current Data Science measurement and evaluation activities:
Modeling Data Science: The complexities inherent to big data analytics require new methods and models to inform novel evaluation paradigms and measurement methods. NIST is collaborating with data science researchers and practitioners to develop models that will support the metrology necessary to drive data science forward.
Data Analytics Evaluation Series: In 2013, the NIST Information Technology Laboratory and Information Access Division began investigation into requirements for a new big data analytics evaluation series.
Data Science Symposium Series: The inaugural NIST Data Science Symposium is being planned for March 4-5 2014
