"And while digital publications are typically sold at a lower per-unit cost, profit margins are much higher – from 41 percent to 75 percent as publishers make the transition from print to digital."

Selfie - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A selfie is a type of self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a hand-held digital camera or camera phone, and are usually taken in a slightly tilted maner. Selfies are often associated with social networking. In the Korean entertainment industry the word selca (short for "self camera") means photos taken of oneself.

Digital Humanitarians: From Haiti Earthquake to Typhoon Yolanda

Digital Humanitarians: From Haiti Earthquake to Typhoon Yolanda | The New Global Open Public Sphere | Scoop.it

"We’ve been able to process and make sense of a quarter of a million tweets in the aftermath of Typhoon Yolanda. Using both AIDR (still under development) andTwitris, we were able to collect these tweets in real-time and use automated algorithms to filter for both relevancy and uniqueness. The resulting ~55,000 tweets were then uploaded to MicroMappers (still under development). Digital volunteers from the world over used this humanitarian technology platform totag tweets and now images from the disaster (click image below to enlarge). At one point, volunteers tagged some 1,500 tweets in just 10 minutes. In parallel, we used machine learning classifiers to automatically identify tweets referring to both urgent needs and offers of help. In sum, the response to Typhoon Yolanda is the first to make full use of advanced computing, i.e., both human computing and machine computing to make sense of Big (Crisis) Data"

Les aléas de la libération des fruits de la recherche

luiy's curator insight, December 12, 2013 5:36 AM

La plainte de la maison Elsevier aura conduit à la suppression de l'accès libre à des milliers d'articles universitaires partagés par le biais de la plateforme aux 6 millions d'usagers. Cette dernière aura en conséquence averti les chercheurs concernés pour leur signifier le retrait de leurs articles, provoquant un tollé sur les réseaux sociaux. Car bon nombre de ces universitaires ne cherchent pas à vivre de ces publications, mais sont en recherche de visibilité et de possibilités d'échanges avec la communauté.

 

Certains universitaires-auteurs dénoncent en conséquence les pratiques commerciales d'Elsevier, qui pour l'année dernière aura affiché des marges de 38 % pour un bilan de 3,2 milliards de dollars de revenus. Ils en appellent désormais au boycott de la maison d'édition spécialisée, que ce soit pour ce qui touche au travail d'édition comme à l'examen par les pairs.

 

Le fondateur de la plateforme de partage, Richard Price, confie que si par le passé lui et son équipe avaient coutume de recevoir une à deux notifications hebdomadaires de la part de l'éditeur, en revanche, le site web en aurait dernièrement reçu 2800 en à peine deux semaines. Selon lui cet accroissement de mesures de la part de l'éditeur va à l'encontre des aspirations de la communauté scientifique.

 

En réponse, Tom Reller, vice-président et responsable des relations corporate mondiales au sein d'Elsevier, argue que sa maison n'avait pris ses mesures que « de temps en temps » et en visant en premier lieu à  « protéger la qualité et l'intégrité des documents scientifiques ». Selon lui il y aurait par ailleurs « beaucoup d'autres bonnes options pour les auteurs qui veulent partager leurs articles », évoquant l'enseignement et la formation internes, les conférences et autres réunions...

Science as an open enterprise; towards all scientific literature online, all data online, and for them to interoperate

Science as an open enterprise; towards all scientific literature online, all data online, and for them to interoperate | The New Global Open Public Sphere | Scoop.it

The Science as an open enterprise report highlights the need to grapple with the huge deluge of data created by modern technologies in order to preserve the principle of openness and to exploit data in ways that have the potential to create a second open science revolution.

Exploring massive amounts of data using modern digital technologies has enormous potential for science and its application in public policy and business. The report maps out the changes that are required by scientists, their institutions and those that fund and support science if this potential is to be realised.

Areas for action

Six key areas for action are highlighted in the report:

 

Scientists need to be more open among themselves and with the public and media

 

Greater recognition needs to be given to the value of data gathering, analysis and communication

 

Common standards for sharing information are required to make it widely usable

 

Publishing data in a reusable form to support findings must be mandatory

 

More experts in managing and supporting the use of digital data are required

 

New software tools need to be developed to analyse the growing amount of data being gathered

A Science of Cities

A Science of Cities | The New Global Open Public Sphere | Scoop.it

"In this book, I suggest that to understand cities we must view them not simply as places in space but as systems of networks and flows. To understand space, we must understand flows, and to understand flows, we must understand networks—the relations between objects that comprise the system of the city. Drawing on the complexity sciences, social physics, urban economics, transportation theory, regional science, and urban geography, , I introduce theories and methods that reveal the deep structure of how cities function.

“Michael Batty has followed a career that has made him the prime interpreter of urban modeling in all its forms. Now his remarkable work has become the foundation of a new science of urban flows and networks that uses big data and sharp theory as tools to dig deep into how and what cities are, and how they can be designed in better ways. This is the book that sets the benchmark that all others will have to follow.” —Nigel Thrift, Vice-Chancellor, University of Warwick

Sobre los límites de la inteligencia colectiva.

luiy's curator insight, November 18, 2013 9:06 AM

We examine whether collective intelligence helps achieve a neutral point of view (NPOV) using data from Wikipedia’s articles on US politics. Our null hypothesis builds on Linus’ Law, often expressed as “Given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow.” Our findings are consistent with a narrow interpretation of Linus’ Law, namely, a greater number of contributors to an article makes an article more neutral. No evidence supports a broad interpretation of Linus’ Law. Moreover, several empirical facts suggest the law does not shape many articles. The majority of articles receive little attention, and most articles change only mildly from their initial slant. Our study provides the first empirical evidence on the limit of collective intelligence. While many managers believe that they could improve their products by taking advantage of the wisdom of crowds, we show that in the case of Wikipedia, there are aspects such as NPOV that collective intelligence does not help achieve successfully.
