7 June 2017
The Jean Golding Institute launched the PURE data competition on 27th March 2017, the competition closed on 19th May, they received 8 entries.
The standard was incredibly high and it was clear that teams had put in lots of effort on the competition. The entries were judged on the following criteria: originality, usability of entry, usefulness of findings, presentation and volume of work. The participants are currently working on a publication to share the methods and tools developed.
Ella provided an extensive report along with the Python code developed for this project. She focused on different organisational units that exist in the current University structure and incorporated additional data on disciplines from Reuters for the individual publications. This allowed her to look at the multidisciplinarity of the different schools at Bristol and how the link together.
