Tutorial: The Basics of Synthesizing Data

March 4th, 2021  | 11 am EDT  to 12:30pm EDT | Online

This is the first tutorial in our series. The purpose is to show the attendees how to use the toolset to create synthetic data. The session will start by introducing the tools and explain how to use them. They consist of a GUI application to load and synthesize datasets, and a Jupyter Hub account to use an R package for writing and executing data synthesis jobs. The latter approach is more for data scientists who want to do more explorations and analysis with the data before and after synthesis, and to create fully automated data processing pipelines.

This tutorial is free but registration is required.
