The DATUM's first exposition session was held on 28th October at LHC in a fairly well attended gathering of students and amid great curiosity and excitement about the group and its intellectually appetizing fare. The session started out with a brief hitchhike into the world of huge and unorganized data that we live in and how by using the humble tools we have of constructing some useful information out of the heap, we can get fantastic insights.

The aim of the group quite simply and crisply put, is to motivate students to develop an intuition of data analytics while solving real world problems, compute and imagine data assessment profitably while solving problems. To break it down, they want you to have the exposure and opportunity to savour the delights of data analytics and possibly fall in love with this brilliant area. The session was inviting in its simplicity. The way so many charming observations and conclusions could be easily whipped up using the so many online tools we have now of accessing and analyzing web data, viz. Google N grams or Google Trends, was appealing. Did you know of the remarkable correlation between appearances of the words 'America' and 'war' in the collection of online books with Google? (Kind of telling?!) Or perhaps, the nearly annual rhythmic spikes in the number of searches for the song 'Wake me up when September ends' over time corresponding to, and you guessed it right, the month September? It is fascinating that there are such patterns in the sea of data online waiting to be mined and perhaps put to some great purpose. This is one of the fundamental aims of the club: to stimulate active interest of the students in the club and help them develop a knack for analytics.
