What Is Visualization?

What Is Visualization? | dataInnovation | Scoop.it

This seems like a straightforward question, but it’s proven to be a difficult one to answer. Even visualization researchers don’t have a clear definition.

 

Is it synonymous with information graphics? Does visualization have to be computer generated? Does data have to be involved, or can it be abstract? The answers vary depending on who you ask.

 

Visualization is a medium. It’s not just an analysis tool nor just a way to prove a point more clearly through data.


Visualization is like books. There are different writing styles and categories, there are textbooks and there are novels, and they communicate ideas in different ways for varied purposes. And just like authors who use words to communicate, there are rules that you should always follow and others that are guidelines that you can bend and break...

How is Big Data changing the banks business? And how this can add value for customers?


Today it is imperative to use machine learning for detecting frauds and mitigating risks. The next step should be solidifying the relationship with clients, by offering what they really need, not what the bank wants to sell.

 

The 6 uses of Big Data in banking

1. Increase efficiency - shorten the time to get information from db

2. Reduce cost - in maintaining the data infrastructure

3. Prevent fraud - self-evident

4. Accountability - better evaluation of clients' risk

5. New revenue streams - the more you know the more you can offer

6. Client satisfaction - by offering a better customer experience

Data Integration as a key for Big Data success

Data Integration as a key for Big Data success | dataInnovation | Scoop.it
If you want to figure out Big Data and marketing, it starts with one core tenet and eight basic questions.

Via Luca Naso
more...
Luca Naso's curator insight, November 15, 2015 11:50 AM

A key topic when trying to leverage Big Data is data integration.

Data integration can take long time and is crucial to really benefit from big data.

 

Silo breaking, made possible by data integration, is what can let a company move from applying short-term tactics to creating a long-term strategy.

 

It goes without saying that without some good questions (i.e. business objectives) even good data integration is of little use.

One good suggestion for defining the goal is to put the customer in the center, for real.

 

8 basic question to help you get started on the right track:

1. Who is your customer?

2. What do they need?

3. What data should you be looking for to see if you are delivering?

4. Where is the data coming from?

5. How is it stored/organized?

6. Who looks at it and how often?

7. Who is analyzing it?

8. Who is presenting it?

Predictive analytics, or the ability to make accurate predictions, is based on good data and good algorithms. Every sensible data scientist knows this. It's good to see that this knowledge is spreading. Data alone, no matter how big, cannot give the right answers.

 

I believe that useful predictive analytics gives *accurate* predictions, not *exact* predictions. Predictive analytics which gives exact predictions is used in Science, not in Business.

​New discussion paper: How Open Data can drive sustainable development

​New discussion paper: How Open Data can drive sustainable development | dataInnovation | Scoop.it
Open Data — data that is freely available online for anyone to use and republish for any purpose — is becoming increasingly important in today’s development agenda driven by the Data Revolution, which has been recognized worldwide as the key engine for achieving the post-2015 UN Sustainable Development Goals. Data is probably one of the most valuable and least-utilized assets of modern governments. In that context, Open Data is being widely recognized as a resource with high economic and social value and as an effective approach for smarter data management.  The primary purpose of Open Data initiatives worldwide is to help governments, businesses and civil society organizations utilize the already available digital data more effectively to drive sustainable development. Many Open Data initiatives involve taking data that is already publicly available and putting it into more usable formats, making it a powerful resource for private sector development, jobs creation, economic growth, and more effective governance and citizen engagement.  In recent years, several studies — including those led by the World Bank — have shown a growing number of Open Data applications around the world, from water management social enterprises in India to agro-businesses in Ghana. The Open Data Impact Map, developed as part of the OD4D (Open Data for Development) network, has more than 1,000 examples of such use cases from over 75 countries, and the list is growing.

How Will Kansas City Run Its Plugged-In, Sensor-Filled Future? | Next City

How Will Kansas City Run Its Plugged-In, Sensor-Filled Future? | Next City | dataInnovation | Scoop.it

The Missouri city has cast itself as the test case for the hopes and concerns about life in a computerized, corporate-run urban environment.

 

It hardly feels correct to call the Kansas City streetcar, a two-mile route that will open in the spring of 2016, a transit project. Sure, the streetcar will move people. But it will also be the spine of a body of sensors, screens and wireless Internet that together make up Kansas City’s “smart city,” North America’s largest such project.

 

Future straphangers, walking at night, will watch as lights brighten at their arrival and fade behind them. A network of digital kiosks will serve as portals to listings for local businesses, events, maps and transit arrival times. CityPost, the maker of those kiosks, will broadcast information to smartphone users in the vicinity — over a municipal WiFi network built and run by Sprint. Parking spot sensors will funnel information about empty spaces to an app for drivers. Cameras mounted on lampposts will send tram drivers warnings about obstacles on the tracks. ....
