RMDS Annual Conference Countdown



4Es, ResearchMap, and Ecosystem Approaches


We are GRMDS. Aiming to modernize research methods and data science with a focus on those studying people and societies, the Global Association for Research Methods and Data Science (RMDS) is a well known global RMDS community for innovative researchers and data scientists. The Association serves all researchers and data scientists who are interested in next-generation research computing tools (which include AI augmentation)

Explore Projects & Workflows



Ethics of AI development. This project explores a multitude of ethical dimensions to artificial intelligence and is split into three key components: an exploration of the ethics of AI development, a section dedicated entirely to learning about bias in programming and AI, and a critical examination of key social and legal questions.


China Data Institute We work together with China Data Institute to gather, describe, and analyze country-level data in order to gain insights on the economic, political and social development of a country.


Predicting the Popularity of Apps in the App Store.Our objective is to build up models to help advertisers find the potential popular apps in App Store. We scraped data from app store through the iTunes API, and applied feature engineering to it via text analytics. We defined apps with top 10% performance as the advertisers’ goal. But in the real world, users can customize the quantile-based on their own needs. Then we performed linear and logistic regression, neural network, KNN, decision tree and random forest.


Meteorology Prediction Using Weather Data. The spatial data includes features like ocean temperature, precipitation rate, lake inflow, etc. Meteorology experts have developed great models for predicting a lake’s inflow using dynamic regression and WRF-chem model, but the field of predicting precipitation rate and many other features are still under exploration. Using the satellite data from NOAA, we combine machine learning techniques and domain knowledge in spatial data to explore the discipline further.

Join the Discussion



The association aims to empower researchers, data scientists, and analysts with the unique RM4E framework that RMDS Lab specially developed for the new era of AI. The association has an online forum with more than 32,000 participants to discuss research methodology, data science, and RMDS innovations, which include the RM4Es and ResearchMaps. It also has a local RMDS community in Pasadena/Glendale area of California, where regular face to face meetups occur once a month.
The Global Association for Research Methods and Data Science helps researchers and data scientists worldwide to excel in a new era of big data and cognitive computing. It also empowers its members with certificate training that focuses on turning data into value as well as business opportunities. Please come be a part of our global ecosystem and help the community grow in strength and collaboration.
