PLOTCON 2016: Scott Draves, Polyglot Visualization with the Beaker Notebook

Beaker is an open source tool for data analysis and data visualization. Beaker has an innovative UI and unique architecture to make it easier for novices to get started and enable experts to work faster. You can combine all your favorite visualization libraries even from different languages on the same page and working with the same data. Like IPython, Beaker uses a notebook-based UI metaphor, but Beaker was designed to be polyglot from the ground up. That is, a single notebook may contain cells from multiple languages that communicate with one another through a unique feature called autotranslation. You can set a variable in a Python cell and then read that variable in a subsequent R cell, and everything just works. Beaker comes with built-in support for Python, R, JavaScript, Java, Scala, Clojure, Torch/Lua, Julia, and more. Each part of your problem can be solved in the language best suited to it. For example, you can scrape the Web in Python, do a regression in R, and then visualize it with D3.js seamlessly in the same notebook. Draves will motivate the design, review the architecture, and gives a live demo of Beaker in action. Scott Draves is a pioneering software artist best known for creating the Electric Sheep, a collective intelligence consisting of 450,000 computers and people that uses mathematics and genetic algorithms to create an infinite abstract animation. In 1990 he received a BS in Mathematics from Brown University and in 1997 a PhD from the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. He is currently employed by Two Sigma to develop the Beaker Notebook.

PyData NYC 2014 The Beaker Notebook is a new open source tool for collaborative data science. Like IPython, Beaker uses a notebook-based metaphor for idea flow. However, Beaker was designed to be polyglot from the ground up. That is, a single notebook may contain cells from multiple different languages that communicate with one another through a unique feature called autotranslation. You can set a variable in a Python cell and then read that variable in a subsequent R cell, and everything just works – magically. Beaker comes with built-in support for Python, R, Groovy, Julia, and Javascript. In addition, Beaker also supports multiple kinds of cells for text, like HTML, LaTeX, Markdown, and our own visualization library that allows for the plotting of large data sets. This talk will motivate the design, review the architecture, and include a live demo of Beaker in action.

Abstract: The Beaker Notebook is a new open source tool for collaborative data science. Beaker has an innovative UI and unique architecture to make it easier for novices to get started, and enable experts to work faster. Like IPython, Beaker uses a notebook-based UI metaphor, but Beaker was designed to be polyglot from the ground up. That is, a single notebook may contain cells from multiple different languages that communicate with one another through a unique feature called autotranslation. You can set a variable in a Python cell and then read that variable in a subsequent R cell, and everything just works – magically. Beaker comes with built-in support for Python, R, JavaScript, Java, Scala, Clojure, Julia, and more. Each part of your problem can be solved in the language best suited to it. For example, you can scrape the web in Python, do a regression in R, and then visualize it with d3.js, seamlessly and all in the same notebook. This talk will motivate the design, review the architecture, and include a live demo of Beaker in action. Bio: Scott Draves is an award-winning software artist, VJ, and a pioneer of the open source movement. His clients and exhibitions range from the likes of MoMA.org, LACMA, Google, and the Adler Planetarium to Skrillex. He has a PhD in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon and a BS in Math from Brown. Draves is currently employed as the PM and developer of the Beaker Notebook for Two Sigma Open Source.

Matt Greenwood introduces BeakerX, a set of Jupyter Notebook extensions that enable polyglot data science, time series plotting and processing, research publication, and integration with Apache Spark. Matt reviews the Jupyter extension architecture and how BeakerX plugs into it, covers the current set of BeakerX capabilities, and discusses the pivot from Beaker, a standalone notebook, to BeakerX.
