Representation Level Madness

A few weeks ago in my data curation class we began talking about how to tell if two data sets were the same data sets. You would think that would be so easy, right? WRONG! It’s completely an utterly complicated and way over my head. My head is swimming trying to figure this stuff out. I have a homework assignment due on it next week and I’m completely unprepared to do any meaningful work on this assignment. I’m reading back through the slides from the previous few weeks so I hopefully can begin to understand it, but I’m not getting very far. This is completely over my head.
