“I propose to consider the question, Can machines think?” This sentence opens Alan Turing’s paper, ‘"Computing Machinery and Intelligence," a landmark text in the history of computing that approaches the status of a manifesto for artificial intelligence.
As researchers from across multiple disciplines grapple with the challenges of COVID-19, the open science movement and its themes of sharing well-curated, reusable data and conducting research collaboratively and transparently appear more relevant than ever. Advocates argue that open science can accelerate discovery, enable rapid and robust peer-review, and enhance the public impact of research.
Who else here gets inordinately excited over notebooks? Any time I walk into a bookstore or stationary store, I immediately head to the notebooks. While I’m not sure I’ve ever actually filled up an entire notebook, a quick walk around my house will reveal dozens of notebooks with drawings, poems, meeting notes, photographs glued to the pages, recipe clippings, and a variety of other things. Paper notebooks are wonderful! But, the focus of today’s Tartan Datascapes post is on a situation where paper notebooks may not be the best thing for you: in your research environments.
As instructors prepare for hybrid instruction this fall, the University Libraries continue to support remote learning with a new unlimited license for The Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE), a suite of resources that can be used to teach scientific methods and concepts for lab and lecture courses.
Mary Shaw, A.J. Perlis Professor of Computer Science in the School of Computer Science recently gave her papers to the University Archives, where they will eventually be made available for research into her long and important career in computer science.

Hello Datascapers! In today’s Tartan Datascapes, I have the privilege of collaborating with Angelina (hereafter Lina) Spotts, our Metadata Specialist at CMU Libraries, to provide what I believe is the most creative, unique installment of the blog since its inception in September 2019! Now, Lina and I have quite a bit in common. We both enjoy talking about data management. We both like using examples from popular culture to teach technical concepts.
Collaboration is at the heart of the cutting-edge research and teaching that has put Carnegie Mellon University at the forefront of technological and social innovation. In the day-to-day workflow of research, this can mean the sharing of ideas or the results of analyses that come from spontaneous conversations with benchmates and office neighbors. Teaching is often a naturally collaborative endeavor as well, with students working together in the classroom and on client-based experiential projects.
