"Data viz extraordinaire Max Galka created this map using NASA’s gridded population data, which counts the global population within each nine-square-mile patch of Earth, instead of within each each district, state, or country border. Out of the 28 million total cells, the ones with a population over 8,000 are colored in yellow."
Social and biological contagions are influenced by the spatial embeddedness of networks. Historically, many epidemics spread as a wave across part of the Earth’s surface; however, in modern contagions long-range edges—for example, due to airline transportation or communication media—allow clusters of a contagion to appear in distant locations. Here we study the spread of contagions on networks through a methodology grounded in topological data analysis and nonlinear dimension reduction. We construct ‘contagion maps’ that use multiple contagions on a network to map the nodes as a point cloud. By analysing the topology, geometry and dimensionality of manifold structure in such point clouds, we reveal insights to aid in the modelling, forecast and control of spreading processes. Our approach highlights contagion maps also as a viable tool for inferring low-dimensional structure in networks.
This is a list of some of the most influential papers in the history of Data Science. We’ve compiled these papers based on recommendations by big data enthusiasts in various social media channels.

O Centro de Estudos de Comunicação e Linguagens é uma unidade de investigação da Faculdade de Ciências Sociais e Humanas da Universidade Nova de Lisboa (FCSH-UNL), existente desde 1983, que integra maioritariamente investigadores/docentes do Departamento de Ciências da Comunicação dessa faculdade, nomeadamente integrados nos cursos de Licenciatura, Mestrado e Doutoramento.
The central argument of this report is that makerspaces can help people to master technology for a more human end. In practice, this means enabling people to use and understand tools for three purposes: self-fulfilment, learning and enterprise. Making may indeed be a natural human impulse, we argue, but it is also instrumental in achieving wider life goals – a means as well as an end.
La revue tic&société est consacrée à l’analyse des rapports entre les technologies de l’information et de la communication (TIC) et la société. Nous sollicitons les textes dans lesquels l’analyse accordera une place centrale au social. Mais nous développons aussi un espace multidisciplinaire. C’est pourquoi nous sommes intéressés non seulement par les approches sociologiques mais également par les approches socio-économiques, sociopolitiques, sociocognitives, etc. Les contributions peuvent être, soit à dominante théorique, soit avoir un contenu principalement descriptif tout en comprenant dans ce deuxième cas une dimension analytique liée à un cadre théorique.
