Software: Data Processing: Jupyter


JupyterHub brings the power of Jupyter notebooks to groups of users.

The Jupyter Notebook is a living online notebook, letting faculty and students weave together computational information (code, data, statistics) with narrative, multimedia, and graphs. Faculty can use it to set up interactive textbooks, full of explanations and examples which students can test out right from their browsers. Students can use it to explain their reasoning, show their work, and draw connections between their classwork and the world outside. Scientists, journalists, and researchers can use it to open up their data, share the stories behind their computations, and enable future collaboration and innovation.

What is Jupyter?

Jupyter is a multifaceted application that gives its users access to math, science, engineering, communication, and visualization tools on an open-source, web-based platform. Any device with internet access can connect to Jupyter and take advantage of its powerful computing capabilities and resources.

What is a Jupyter Notebook?

Jupyter Notebook allows you to program in a web browser. Users can write live code, equations, visualizations and narrative text, then share their Notebooks with others through email, Dropbox, GitHub, and the Jupyter Notebook Viewer. It is an open-source web application built for collaboration.

What programming languages can I use in Jupyter?

Currently, the University of Alberta’s Jupyter Notebooks support two programming languages: Python 3 and R.

Who can use Jupyter?

Access through is available to Neuro researchers and students. Login using your McGill shortname (e.g. bmilner) and password. Use Minerva to check your shortname or update your password.   

More details about using Jupyter.BIC will be added here soon.
