LiveDataLab: A cloud-based platform for data science education

Authors

The growth of the “big data” industry has created an urgent need for educating a large number of data scientists and engineers. However, learning practical data science skills requires hands-on experience with large, real-world datasets, which is difficult to offer at scale due to hardware and cost limitations. In this thesis, we present LiveDataLab, a novel cloud-based solution enabling deployment of hands-on assignments with large, real-world datasets and integration of data science education, research, and applications together in one ecosystem. LiveDataLab provides a novel project-based learning platform, alongside open leaderboard competitions, course assignment hosting, and auto-grading abilities. All of these applications are powered by a novel auto-scaling cloud backbone enabling these capabilities at relatively low cost. Additionally, LiveDataLab simultaneously serves as a platform supporting data science research via its integration with large, real-world datasets. LiveDataLab provides the ability to handle the growing demand and necessity for data science education, support data science research, and enable data science applications all in one singular platform. Ultimately, LiveDataLab brings learners, educators, researchers, and application developers together on a single unified platform to collaborate in a highly efficient big data ecosystem.

Many universities are offering data science (DS) courses to fulfill the growing demands for skilled DS practitioners. Assignments and projects are essential parts of the DS curriculum as they enable students to gain hands-on experience in real-world DS tasks. However, most current assignments and projects are lacking in at least one of two ways: 1) they do not comprehensively teach all the steps involved in the complete workflow of DS projects; 2) students work on separate problems individually or in small teams, limiting the scale and impact of their solutions. To overcome these limitations, we envision novel synergistic modular assignments where a large number of students work collectively on all the tasks required to develop a large-scale DS product. The resulting product can be continuously improved with students' contributions every semester. We report our experience with developing and deploying such an …
