Not only is Jupyter Notebook an exciting technology for data analytics, it represents a vibrant community. For example, as of August 1st, 2015:

  • There are over 150,000 Jupyter notebooks on GitHub and the number is growing steadily.
  • The Notebook ranks in the top 0.2% of all Python modules in number of downloads.
  • The project recently received a $6 million grant to “expand the reach of the Jupyter Notebook in research, education and industry, emphasizing collaborative data science, the creation of interactive dashboards, and tools for using the notebook in rich documentation workflows.”

IBM Emerging Technology is embracing Jupyter Notebook in two ways. First, we are using notebooks to help customers analyze their data in the health care, telecommunications, banking, and transportation industries as well as the public sector. Second, we are actively supporting and extending both the Jupyter technology and community by:
