# A Programmer's Guide to #DataMining I #OpenBook #DataScience

Intriguing Networks's insight:

Cheers thanks for this handy for all budding DH students

luiy's curator insight,

This book’s contents are freely available as PDF files. When you click on a chapter title below, you will be taken to a webpage for that chapter. The page contains links for a PDF of that chapter and for any sample Python code and data that chapter requires. Please let me know if you see an error in the book, if some part of the book is confusing, or if you have some other comment. I will use these to revise the chapters.

Chapter 1: Introduction

Finding out what data mining is and what problems it solves. What will you be able to do when you finish this book.

Chapter 2: Get Started with Recommendation Systems

Introduction to social filtering. Basic distance measures including Manhattan distance, Euclidean distance, and Minkowski distance. Pearson Correlation Coefficient. Implementing a basic algorithm in Python.

Chapter 3: Implicit ratings and item-based filtering

A discussion of the types of user ratings we can use. Users can explicitly give ratings (thumbs up, thumbs down, 5 stars, or whatever) or they can rate products implicitly–if they buy an mp3 from Amazon, we can view that purchase as a ‘like’ rating.

Chapter 4: Classification

In  previous chapters we used  people’s ratings of products to make recommendations. Now we turn to using attributes of the products themselves to make recommendations. This approach is used by Pandora among others.

Chapter 5: Further Explorations in Classification

A discussion on how to evaluate classifiers including 10-fold cross-validation, leave-one-out, and the Kappa statistic. The k Nearest Neighbor algorithm is also introduced.

Chapter 6: Naïve Bayes

An exploration of Naïve Bayes classification methods. Dealing with numerical data using probability density functions.

Chapter 7: Naïve Bayes and unstructured text

This chapter explores how we can use Naïve Bayes to classify unstructured text. Can we classify twitter posts about a movie as to whether the post was a positive review or a negative one? (new version coming November 2013)

## Five Critical Skills to Empower Students in the Digital Age

Even as educators are turning to technology to offer ever more granular data on children’s learning, November maintains teaching them to assess their own performance is more useful. Students could grade themselves, providing evidence to support conclusions and comparing the grades against the findings of the teacher.

Dinky Diana Kay Smith's curator insight,

Children are not inspired to learn by repeating the same processes over and over. Children develop an interest in a variety of subjects because of interest. This interest can lead to a better understanding. Of a topic of interest when they are asked to research or are inspired to research to learn more about something. By allowing a child to delve into a topic allows for greater understanding in the sense of accomplishment.

Maria E Araiza-Gutiérrez's curator insight,

Definitely a good read!

## How Maps Are Saving the World

Maps. They’ve been around longer than photographs. They’ve defined empires,guided explorers, told stories, and captured the imagination of many a hopeful traveler for years. While most appreciate the beauty and power of a good map, few recognize the dynamic and vital applications they have today.

## The Way of Improvement Leads Home: Is There a Difference Between Digital History and Digital Humanities?

Intriguing Networks's insight:
Much need of more open projects and free access to important historic resources and collections. with great digital tools and less interpretation and narrative. Let the user interact directly with the sources and data by their own discovery , then able to choose and interact with scholarly discourses and layers of interpretation. Some lessons to be learned from serving the sources and documents and media with great toolkits to encourage some direct experience of working with source !materials aka family histories and micro histories.

Intriguing Networks's insight:
With the established ability re big data and analytics and here even with machine learning and a trend towards 'as a service infrastructure' is there a DH opportunity? Are there standards and shared infrastructures that would enable more innovation and pure research? All for original research but if we do not want to reinvent the wheel and learn from, leverage and deploy the best tools can a more strategic approach be adopted to save money as well or at least let it achieve more? Europeana, Jisc, projects out of Edina re Georeferencing etc has informed and enabled for instance British Library crowd sourced map projects but is it all too piecemeal? where can DH and OpenGLAm come together more, as an example. And finally using TEI and Machine Learning what projects have been achieved and again how can these core capabilities be better shared ?

## NTT DATA to Contribute to Digital Archiving of Vatican Apostolic Library Manuscripts Mar. 20, 2014 | News Center | NTT DATA

Intriguing Networks's insight:

Vatican archives to be fully digitised but will that mean #openaccess for all?  Starting with 6000 manuscripts already in progress the plan is now to make all the 80,000 manuscripts accessible to mankind. what a fascinating read they will make, assuming there will be full disclosure, what really happened when the Vatican and the Papacy virtually ruled the world?

what a resource and what a #digitalhumanities feast this will be. But hope that some european GLAMS and DM2 initiatives will be involved?

## The economics of social media and why the Facebook-WhatsApp deal makes sense - Schaefer Marketing Solutions: We Help Businesses {grow}

If you look at the economic drivers of Facebook, the WhatsApp deal suddenly makes sense
Intriguing Networks's insight:

In the end its as Mark Schaefer says so concisely on his blog Grow, it is really all about GROW THE GRAPH

"

1) Obtaining more users, and then increasing the amount of personal information collected about those users that can be turned into targeted ads, and

2) Getting users to spend increasing amounts of time on these platforms so they can see more ads.

I think you have to view every announcement and investment Facebook makes through this lens. Perhaps we can then consider the acquisition in a new light — it’s all about the data.

Same as Google...Google+ there is no such thing as a free lunch, software application, platform and utility i exchange for targeting data, is that so unreasonable and how many ads do you have to sell to get the \$16 billion return plus profit...

## ‘Kindred Britain’ maps 30,000 people in British history

A fantastic new visualisation work has been released today titled ‘Kindred Britain‘. Created by Nicholas Jenkins and Elijah Meeks of Stanford University in partnership with Scott Murray (amongst others) the project offers a deep, exploratory interface into a network of nearly 30,000 key figures in British culture connected through ‘family relationships of blood, marriage, or affiliation’. As the designers describe, ‘it is a vision of the nation’s history as a giant family affair’.
