“ NYTimes: 2 to 1 - Germany and 1989 Recently Visual Loop posted 90 datavis tumbrl blogs to follow. For only covering Tumblr, this is a ton of blogs! But what are the best data blogs? That question was asked at Quora several years ago. At the moment, there are 50 answers with long lists of suggested blogs. It’s true, there are a lot of great blogs about data, analytics, statistics, data mining and data visualization but it is near-impossible to name the best. Everything depends on what you want to learn about. Within our product hypothesis confirmation process, we accumulate a huge list of data blogs to learn best practices and tools bloggers use to analyze and visualize data. This research helped us to created the product that considers much of the tips and tricks data artists usually use. Now we’ve decided to share a list of data blogs we love. The list is arbitrary arranged and blogs are in no particular order. Dataviz artists and evangelists These blogs answer different quest”

Various Artists - Northern Soul: The Film Soundtrack - Drowned In Sound

Various Artists - Northern Soul: The Film Soundtrack - Drowned In Sound | Data Visualization & Open data | Scoop.it
Northern soul was to the late Sixties what punk rock was ten years later. A truly underground phenomenon, perhaps the first. Certainly the first to fully embrace working class culture. Oddly enough, the phrase 'northern soul' was first coined by the owner of a London-based record store because a lot of his customers tended to come from the Midlands and up north in search of rare American soul 7-inches, many of them imports and almost every one of them released independently.

The Visual Signature of Your City

The Visual Signature of Your City | Data Visualization & Open data | Scoop.it
Social-media platforms like FourSquare and Twitter have been a boon for sociologists and geographers who now have entirely new ways of tracking how we move through cities, where we go, who we are, and even what we think of the world around us. There is one set of social-media platforms, however, that has been tougher to crack for useful data than others: photo-sharing sites. Their metadata can illustrate where people take photos, and how active they are. But on the whole, how do you aggregate useful data about entire cities and the differences between them from the content of millions of photos on a site like Instagram? Researchers have been working on this for the past year, and they've just posted some of the initial results from their Phototrails project here.The project is less an exploration of a specific research question, and more a first foray into what we might learn by treating user-generated photography as another source of Big Data.

Symbolic regression of generative network models

Symbolic regression of generative network models | Data Visualization & Open data | Scoop.it
Networks are a powerful abstraction with applicability to a variety of scientific fields. Models explaining their morphology and growth processes permit a wide range of phenomena to be more systematically analysed and understood. At the same time, creating such models is often challenging and requires insights that may be counter-intuitive. Yet there currently exists no general method to arrive at better models. We have developed an approach to automatically detect realistic decentralised network growth models from empirical data, employing a machine learning technique inspired by natural selection and defining a unified formalism to describe such models as computer programs. As the proposed method is completely general and does not assume any pre-existing models, it can be applied “out of the box” to any given network. To validate our approach empirically, we systematically rediscover pre-defined growth laws underlying several canonical network generation models and credible laws for diverse real-world networks. We were able to find programs that are simple enough to lead to an actual understanding of the mechanisms proposed, namely for a simple brain and a social network.Symbolic regression of generative network models • Telmo Menezes & Camille RothScientific Reports 4, Article number: 6284 http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/srep06284See Also: https://github.com/telmomenezes/synthetic
