Code.org: CS Principles Unit 4 – Big Data and Privacy
https://curriculum.code.org/csp-19/unit4/

What opportunities do large data sets provide for solving problems and creating knowledge? How is cybersecurity impacting the ever-increasing number of Internet users? How does cryptography work? This unit, developed by computer science non-profit Code.org, tackles these questions. The curriculum is aligned to AP Curriculum Framework standards and the AP CS Principles assessment. Users can navigate through the unit’s nine chapters using the circular numbers at the top of the page, or by selecting the links in the blue rectangles on the upper right. These chapters delve into topics such as Simple Encryptions and Public Key Cryptography, each with a Teaching Guide (containing activities ranging from 20-40 minutes long on average), learning Objectives, associated Links, and Support links. Some sections also contain Vocabulary definitions. All lessons and handouts can be downloaded as PDFs via the menu at the top of the site. Also accessible from the Unit 4 landing page are Other Resources related to big data and privacy, such as activity guides, worksheets, and educational videos.

25 Excellent Machine Learning Open Datasets
https://opendatascience.com/25-excellent-machine-learning-open-datasets/

Your machine learning program is only as good as your training sets. Data sets are an integral part of the quality of your machine learning, but you may not always have access to data behind closed walls or the budget to purchase or rent the key. However there are plenty of data sets out there where you can train your machine learning for free. Here are the top 25 picks for open source machine learning datasets. Each one offers clean data with neat columns and rows so that your training sets run more smoothly. This will be added to Artificial Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™.

Data USA – Explore, Map, Compare and Download U.S. Data
https://datausa.io/

Their team, comprised of economists, data scientists, designers, researchers and business executives, worked for over a year with input from policymakers, government officials and everyday citizens to develop Data USA, the most comprehensive website and visualization engine of public US Government data. Data USA tells millions of stories about America. Through advanced data analytics and visualization, it tells stories about: places in America—towns, cities and states; occupations, from teachers to welders to web developers; industries–where they are thriving, where they are declining and their interconnectedness to each other; and education and skills, from where is the best place to live if you’re a computer science major to the key skills needed to be an accountant. Data USA puts public US Government data in your hands. Instead of searching through multiple data sources that are often incomplete and difficult to access, you can simply point to Data USA to answer your questions. Data USA provides an open, easy-to-use platform that turns data into knowledge. It allows millions of people to conduct their own analyses and create their own stories about America – its people, places, industries, skill sets and educational institutions. Ultimately, accelerating society’s ability to learn and better understand itself. This will be added to Statistics Resources and Big Data Subject Tracer™.

qri – A New Tool for Data Science

qri – A New Tool for Data Science
https://qri.io/

qri (“query”) is versioned, scriptable, exportable, collaborative datasets. Qri is built around datasets. Bigger than a spreadsheet, smaller than a database, datasets are all around us. Use Qri to browse, download, create, fork, and publish datasets with a broad network peers. Data is better when we work together. Qri costs nothing to use, and is built as an open source project under a GPL license. Every dataset change is tracked & attributed to an author, so you can audit whether the data you’re looking at meets your standards, and track changes as they happen. Whether you’re a data scientist, or have only ever touched excel, we have tools for you. Qri is built from the ground up as a distributed network on top of IPFS. We chose IPFS because it’s both global and content-addressed — perfect for datasets. Data you’ve downloaded stays local. Content-addressing lets data be stored anywhere without sacrificing security. All this adds up to a web of datasets that is faster, more secure, and free. Qri has a desktop app and command line tools. Both are free and open source.
