In defense of public scientific-data sharing: a NeuroMat op-ed

The idea that knowledge should be available to anyone interested in appreciating it is a constant point in the history of mankind. It is present from Greek ancient philosophy to Renaissance science, from medieval troubadours to the great classical composers of the nineteenth century.


In defense of public scientific-data sharing

The open-science movement advocates for public, free access to tools and data scientists make use of in order to widen science's social benefits. Though there have been undeniable improvements over the last years, such widening is still relatively resisted. Claudia D. Vargas and Fabio Kon, Le Monde Diplomatique, 05/2014.

In neuromathematics, the reaching of a frontier of science means ‘courageous’ software development

Computer scientists have engaged in ever-evolving, innovative strategies to create operational neuromathematical softwares. The development team of the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics (NeuroMat) has progressively become a central player in the overall scientific project of combining mathematical and neuroscientific research agendas.
