The Art of Pi: A Colorful Data Visualization

The Art of Pi:  A Colorful Data Visualization | Brain Science and Leadership Development | Scoop.it

Using Circos, a circular visualization software, Cristian Ilies Vasile and Martin Krzywinski created these vibrant representations of π, φ and e.


Cristian Ilies Vasile had the idea of connecting each digit of π to its successive digit with links to the position of the numerically corresponding segments. Martin Krzywinski added to Vasile’s visualization “by showing the transition probabilities for each digit across bins of 10 digits” and did this for φ and e as well for the first 1,000 digits, followed by the first 2,000 digits.

Next, Krzywinski created a lovely distribution plot of the numbers using red-yellow-blue Brewer palette to map their digits and plot them on an Archimedean spiral.

For more details of the project, check out Martin Krzywinski’s website.

A cool little tool that easily makes a picture using your quote (either your own or someone else's). There are background templates (though not very many) to choose from. You only have to type the quote, click on Create and...voilà, you have an image which you can insert in your presentation to add a nice touch.

Above you can see an example made by me.

Aspirin for Cancer Prevention | Devil in the Data | Big Think | Brain Science and Leadership Development | Scoop.it
Even as the U.S. government continues to spend huge sums of money underwriting cancer research, public health agencies are failing to make people aware of a proven, well-tolerated, low-cost anti-cancer drug: aspirin.
Nina Fishman's insight:

As a cancer patient, no doctor told me this... I am passing it on because the research is valuable.  Aspirin can become part of a disease prevention lifestyle.

Visual thinking is a way to organize your thoughts and improve your ability to think and communicate. It’s a way to expand your range and capacity by going beyond the linear world of the written word, list and spreadsheet, and entering the non-linear world of complex spacial relationships, networks, maps and diagram.

How the Brain Learns from Mistakes - Dana Foundation

How the Brain Learns from Mistakes - Dana Foundation | Brain Science and Leadership Development | Scoop.it

"Imagine renting a car in the United Kingdom. Though you may be an experienced driver on American soil, making the switch to the “wrong” side of the road can be a bit of a challenge. You have to remain vigilant and pay close attention to the new rules, as well as inhibit your automatic tendency to want to drive on the right. Chances are, you will also make a few mistakes at first or as you grow tired.Common wisdom holds that we learn best from our mistakes. But researchers at Michigan State University have published a new study that suggests something more is needed: We must be conscious of our mistakes to reap the benefits of improved performance."
