Random thoughts on infographics, simplification, and the revolting 10 seconds rule

Random thoughts on infographics, simplification, and the revolting 10 seconds rule | DHHpC12 @ICHASS | Scoop.it

FROM SITE: let's remember what William Cleveland said in one of his classics:

"The important criterion for a graph is not simply how fast we can see a result; rather it is whether through the use of the graph we can see something that would have been harder to see otherwise or that could not have been seen at all."

Cyberinfrastructure and the Humanities

Some history of ICHASS.

DH is interdisciplinary field that is interested in archiving, analyzing, and interpreting human activity

Humanities is about contextualzing information; we can help comptuers do that (and/or they help us do that).

CS folks like to work with difficult problems; nobody has more difficult problems than Humanities scholars.

Discuss that the technologies are accessible enough to use with students. 

Explicitly mentions that we need to be inclusive about CS folks as co-authors on the projects. 

Building a DH PhD program at Clemson.

Digging into Data using new collaborative infrastructures supporting humanities based computer science research

Digging into Data using new collaborative infrastructures supporting humanities based computer science research | DHHpC12 @ICHASS | Scoop.it

ABSTRACT: This paper explores infrastructure supporting humanities–computer science research in large–scale image data by asking: Why is collaboration a requirement for work within digital humanities projects? What is required for fruitful interdisciplinary collaboration? What are the technical and intellectual approaches to constructing such an infrastructure? What are the challenges associated with digital humanities collaborative work? We reveal that digital humanities collaboration requires the creation and deployment of tools for sharing that function to improve collaboration involving large–scale data repository analysis among multiple sites, academic disciplines, and participants through data sharing, software sharing, and knowledge sharing practices.

TESTING MULTITHEORETICAL, MULTILEVEL HYPOTHESES ABOUT ORGANIZATIONAL NETWORKS

TESTING MULTITHEORETICAL, MULTILEVEL HYPOTHESES ABOUT ORGANIZATIONAL NETWORKS | DHHpC12 @ICHASS | Scoop.it

ABSTRACT: Network forms of organization, unlike hierarchies or marketplaces, are agile and are constantly adapting as new links are added and dysfunctional ones dropped. We review some of the theoretical and methodological accomplishments and challenges of contemporary research on organizational networks. We then offer an analytic framework that can be used to specify and statistically test simultaneously multilevel, multitheoretical hypotheses about the structural tendencies of organizational networks. We conclude with an empirical study illustrating some of the capabilities of this framework.

Social Media & Networks

 

Social Media exists because of social needs and drivers. 

 

Social: it's who you know

Cognitive: it's who they think you know

Knowledge: what they think you know

...

 

Theories of Networking (I didn't get them all...hoping for slides)

Self-Interest

Mutual Interest & Collective Action

Contagian Theories

Cognitive Theories

Exchange & Dependency Theories

Homophily and Proximity

Balance Theories

Coevolutionary Theory

 

Definition: Social network analysis is the mapping and measuring of realtionships and flows between people, groups, and organizations + <i>spacetime</i>. 

 

Data Representation

Matrix of relationship

Semantic Graph: 

*Node- a person or entities, w/attributes

*Link-a relationship, w/attributes ("friend w/): directed: one-way; undirected: two-way

*Attributes

....

 

Building the Graph

Each person is a node, a relationship is a link

Links can by directed or undirected

Graphs can have cycles. 

 

Degree of Separation. 

 

"Best" location in network:

most popular

best location

closest to everyone

not connected/think outside the box (less prone to group-think)
