Jupyter - The path to solving outstanding problems

Juan Klopper

Audience level:

Brief Summary

In this keynote address I invite you to see the use of Jupyter notebooks and Jupyter lab in my life. I use it for research and for teaching, but also to enrich my own life. As a surgeon, I know that there are so many outstanding clinical questions in healthcare. Middle and especially lower income countries suffer the greatest proportion of this burden, yet produce the least amount of research.


Jupyter notebooks came along a revolutionised the way I teach and do research. It has allowed me to empower students and scholars from all over the world to contribute to our collective research output. Solving their local outstanding healthcare questions. The inability to afford expensive data analysis software is a hurdle to this output A problem easily solved by open source software. In this keynote talk, I invite you into my world of healthcare, mathematics, and physics, and how I use Jupyter notebooks to empower and inspire others. I trust that you will enjoy the journey and hope that you will reach out to join forces in spreading knowledge and information with the help of Project Jupyter.
