"... The human algorithm is part understanding and part communication. The ability to communicate and apply insights internally and externally is the key to unlocking opportunities to earn relevance. Beyond research, beyond intelligence, the human algorithm is a function of extracting insights with intention, humanizing trends ad possibilities and working with strategists to improve and innovate everything from processes to products to overall experiences.
The idea of the human algorithm is to serve as the human counterpart to the abundance of new social intelligence and listening platforms hitting the market every day. Someone has to be on the other side of data to interpret it beyond routine. Someone has to redefine the typical buckets where data is poured. And someone has to redefine the value of data to save important findings from a slow and eventual death by three-ring binders rich with direction and meaning."

NOTE: This article is in parallel with the increasing number of citations about the need and development of curation in the digital environment by people. This means that while computers can gather, mine, sort, and roughly analyze Big Data, there still is a need for a human interface / filter. These people are necessary not only for research or corporate environments, but also libraries, instructional design, and assessment analytics of eLearning ecosystems.
Last month, Araceli Perez of e-interactive created a fantastic infographic resource for social media analytics.
Here are a few highlights:
**Define measureable and actionable KPIs
**Configure your analytics
**The infographic was compiled from Ara and e-interactive’s analytics knowledge and from posts by Gemma Muñoz and myself (from a series I did over on Search Engine Journal)."

"This website is dedicated to providing anyone interested in getting started with data driven journalism with a collection of learning resources, including relevant events, tools, tutorials, interviews and case studies. The data journalism community and mailing list are dedicated to strengthening the community of journalists, designers, data providers and others, and encouraging collaboration and exchange of expertise.
About our data driven journalism initiative
The initiative is aimed at enabling more journalists to use data-sets as a source for reporting by providing them with the necessary skills, techniques and tools according to their level of expertise. In order to do so the EJC and its partners will:
> Provide a series of hands on workshops across Europe and online training sessions with leading data journalists and open data experts to demonstrate how to find, analyse, and create new stories using data-sets.
If you are interested in partnering with us so as to help achieve these goals or if you have any other inquiries please contact the website editor Liliana Bounegru (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This initiative receives partial funding from the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science." -- from the Source
NOTE: This site is one of the first I have seen that is devoted to the interpretation and re-use of raw data in articles and reports. As we have more and more information produced as statistics, analytics, and raw data, it will become more important to be able to interpret and communicate the content in a meaningfull way for the audience(s).
