Oycib ::: Collective Intelligence. "Kaan". Network Visualisation.

Oycib ::: Collective Intelligence. "Kaan". Network Visualisation. | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
luiy's insight:

Beginning with the origins, Oycib means in Mayan language "the place of honey". In this projet, Oycib is an e-Research infrastructure for the Collective Intelligence Analysis.

 

With Oycib infrastructure we propose an analysis model, based in the digital practices and collaboration profiles for the development of Social Learning and the Context Awareness in the Collective Intelligence process.

 

The infrastructure design and the profiles proposed here, are based on historical studies about social organization glyphs in Mayan culture made by Montgomery (2002) and Calvin (2012).

 

Initially we worked with four collaboration profiles: the "Itzaat", the "Pitziil", the "Ayuxul" and the "Sajal" (profiles), but we can find others depending of the organization context. Thus, it's important to mention that each profile is found based on the e-Xploración model and they are the qualitative and quantitative interpretation of the collaborative practices. In this way, we propose methods based on Social Network Analysis for the learning and knowledge management.

 

Thus, the network in Oycib is called "Kaan" (sky or network in Mayan Lenguage). In the "Kaan" we present the visualization of the subjects and objects, such as persons, forums, blogs, files, groups and all the interactions among them. Additionally, each profile and their interactions is presented.

 

... you can interact with "Kaan" here.

luiy's insight:

Project Planning a MOOC

 

The course teams involved with our MOOCs included experienced academics with familiarity in developing materials on a learning platform. Nonetheless, for each of them it was their first experience of MOOCs, as it was for the project planning team.

 

 

Delivering a MOOC

 

A range of styles and learning methods were adopted by the four MOOCs, appropriate to the subject matter covered. A MOOC structure of six weeks and 5-10 student effort hours per week of study appeared to be just right for the majority of students (55%). Some considerations for future delivery include:

 

< Well designed announcements at the beginning and end of each week that articulate with the topic coverage, learning activities and assessment methods can be effective at maintaining student interest and motivation.


< Management of forum threads and posts is a critical factor in dealing with massive scale short courses to ensure the majority of students are not affected negatively by the behaviour of a small number of the community, while preserving the openness of the discussion areas.

 

< The Coursera platform tools are significant and comprehensive in terms of plotting overall student activity, allowing evaluation of assessment data, as well as usage statistics on video resources and other learning activities; however, further refinement of these tools to enable both students and teaching staff to understand their progression at an individual level is necessary (and underway).

Immersion tool: a people-centric view of your email life | #SelfAwareness #SNA | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

Via C.I.L. CONSULTING
luiy's insight:
Immersion is an invitation to dive into the history of your email life in a platform that offers you the safety of knowing that you can always delete your data. Just like a cubist painting, Immersion presents users with a number of different perspectives of their email data. 
It provides a tool for self-reflection at a time where the zeitgeist is one of self-promotion. 
It provides an artistic representation that exists only in the presence of the visitor. 
It helps explore privacy by showing users data that they have already shared with others. 
Finally, it presents users wanting to be more strategic with their professional interactions, with a map to plan more effectively who they connect with. So Immersion is not about one thing. It’s about four. It’s about self-reflection, art, privacy and strategy. It’s about providing users with a number of different perspectives by leveraging on the fact that the web, and emails, are now an important part of our past.

The Anatomy of a Forgotten Social Network | #SNA #Tumblr

The Anatomy of a Forgotten Social Network | #SNA #Tumblr | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
While network scientists have been poring over data from Twitter and Facebook, they’ve forgotten about Tumblr. Now they’ve begun to ask how this network differs from the rest.
luiy's insight:

The study of social networks has gripped computer scientists in recent years. In particular, researchers have focused on a few of the biggest networks that have made their data available, such as some mobile phone networks, Wikipedia and Twitter.


But in the rush, one network has been more or less ignored by researchers: Tumblr, a microblogging platform similar to Twitter. So an interesting question is how the network associated with Tumblr is different from the Twitter network.


Today we get an answer thanks to the work of Yi Chang and pals at Yahoo Labs in Sunnyvale. These guys point out that relatively little is known about Tumblr compared to other networks like Twitter and set out to change this.


The basic statistics are straightforward. Tumblr is a microblogging service with about 160 million users who together have published over 70 billion posts.


The most significant difference between Tumblr and its bigger cousin, Twitter, is that there is no limit to the size of the posts that users can create. By contrast, Twitter imposes the famous 140-character limit on all of its posts. Tumblr also supports multimedia posts, such as images, audio, and video.

Privacy concerns have put the breaks on many efforts to use "big data" in education. Why are people so skittish of education data when other kinds of digital information are readily accessible?

Via Claude Emond, Pierre Levy
luiy's insight:

InBloom’s trajectory has shined a spotlight on the public’s sensitivity around what happens to student data. When it first began as a mammoth ed-tech project in 2011 by the Council of Chief State School Officers, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Carnegie Corporation called the Shared Learning Infrastructure, the purpose was to provide open-source software to safely organize, pool, and store student data from multiple states and multiple sources in the cloud. That included everything from demographics to attendance to discipline to grades to the detailed, moment-by-moment, data produced by learning analytics programs like Dreambox and Khan Academy. An API — application programming interface — would allow software developers to connect to that data, creating applications that could, at least in theory, be used by any school in the infrastructure.

Marlowe : Vers un générateur d’expériences de pensée sur des dossiers #complexes | #DH #AI #agents | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
Marlowe, Toward A Generator of Thought Experiments on Complex Files: An author, an experimenter and a reviewer of the computer programs, Marlowe and Prospero, contribute in this article, respectively and successively, an extensive and detailed presentation of Marlowe, a report on what it is like to interact with Marlowe and a review of the recently-published work, by the first author, describing the development of Prospero for the Analyse of complex dossiers of texts concerning a social controversy, and Prospero's extension and adaptation with Marlowe to direct natural language dialog with researchers concerning specific complex dossiers.
luiy's insight:

Comme première définition du type d’expériences engendrées par Marlowe, on peut parler de « dialogues avec un ensemble de mémoires externes ». Marlowe (nom de code : MRLW) est en effet dépositaire de structures de représentation et de stocks de connaissances qui permettent de lui déléguer des tâches d’enquête fastidieuses. Ses ressources étant en grande partie externalisées, MRLW peut permettre un travail collectif via le cumul de concepts et d’exemples, de règles et de procédures éprouvées sur différents dossiers. Contrairement au chercheur humain, MRLW peut explorer, et exploiter, sans autre limite que les capacités de la machine qui l’abrite, d’innombrables combinaisons. Comme la restitution pure et simple de l’ensemble des combinaisons ou des chemins possibles n’aurait aucun sens – augmentant considérablement le travail interprétatif du chercheur – le dialogue sert de cadrage, ou plutôt d’espace de négociation des prises pertinentes par lesquelles s’affirme la maîtrise d’un ou de plusieurs dossiers. MRLW joue son rôle de maintien de la réflexivité à partir de quatre grands types de fonctionnalités :

 

- des accès documentés à des informations difficiles à extraire manuellement (c’est-à-dire par la recherche visuelle dans de multiples fenêtres) ;

 

- des opérations d’évaluation et de synthèse offrant des angles de vue diversifiés sur un même corpus ;

 

- des modèles ou des espaces de calcul aidant à éprouver la consistance des interprétations du chercheur ;

 

- des outils de contrôle sur la composition du corpus, le cadre d’analyse et les priorités du chercheur.

2013 OPEN-ACCESS EDITION

Published in January 2013, the open-access edition of Debates in the Digital Humanitiesmarked not just the opening up of the printed text, but also the debut of a custom-built social reading platform. Going beyond the basic task of making the contents of the printed edition accessible, the OA platform makes the text interactive, with key features that allow readers to interact with the text by marking passages as interesting and adding terms to a crowdsourced index.

The OA platform marks a significant shift for Debates in the Digital Humanities in that it moves it from a single printed edition of collected essays to an expanded, ongoing digital publication stream that the Press plans to draw upon to publish both future editions of collection and other publications on more focused DH topics. While the first iteration of the digital platform contains only the content of the printed text, an expanded edition with new additions will appear in March 2013.

@ernestprats Thank you for posting this!

 

To provide some context about this book, here is an excerpt  from the book's editor, Matthew K. Gold, via his blog http://blog.mkgold.net/

 

"A group of scholars – from both within and outside of the field – have assembled answers to some of those questions in a volume that I have recently edited for the University of Minnesota Press titled Debates in the Digital Humanities. In that book, contributors critique the digital humanities for a series of faults: not only paying inadequate attention to race, class, gender, and sexuality, but in some cases explicitly seeking to elide cultural issues from the frame of analysis; reinforcing the traditional academic valuation of research over teaching; and allowing the seductions of information visualization to paper over differences in material contexts."

 

This was part of a talk he gave at the 2012 MLA Panel "Debates in the Digital Humanities". See more here: http://blog.mkgold.net/2012/01/10/whose-revolution-toward-a-more-equitable-digital-humanities/ ;

Here's how we take back the Internet | #Snowden #privacy #surveillance | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

Appearing by telepresence robot, Edward Snowden speaks at TED2014 about surveillance and Internet freedom. The right to data privacy, he suggests, is not a partisan issue, but requires a fundamental rethink of the role of the internet in our lives — and the laws that protect it. "Your rights matter,” he says, "because you never know when you're going to need them." Chris Anderson interviews, with special guest Tim Berners-Lee.

luiy's insight:

Why you should listen

 

Edward Snowden was just about to turn 28 when his face was suddenly splashed across every major newspaper in the US. In the summer of 2013 The Guardianpublished a series of leaked documents about the American National Security Agency (NSA), starting with an article about a secret court order demanding American phone records from Verizon, followed by an article on the NSA's top-secret Prism program, said to be accessing user data from Google, Apple and Facebook.

 

It wasn't long before Snowden came forward as the source, revealing that he had carefully planned the leak, copying documents when he was working as a contractor for the NSA. "I understand that I will be made to suffer for my actions," he said at the time, but "I will be satisfied if the federation of secret law, unequal pardon and irresistible executive powers that rule the world that I love are revealed even for an instant." Snowden's actions have led to a global debate on the relationship between national security and online privacy. His leaks continue to have a lasting impact on the American public's view of the government, and has encouraged media scrutiny on the NSA.

 

Snowden had coordinated the leak with journalist Glenn Greenwald and filmmaker Laura Poitras from Hong Kong; after he revealed his identity, he fled and ended up in Moscow. Under charges of espionage by the American government, Snowden remains in Russia in temporary asylum.

luiy's insight:

UC San Diego is launching the first major online course that prominently features “massive open online research” (MOOR).

 

In “Bioinformatics Algorithms — Part 1,” UC San Diego computer science and engineering professor Pavel Pevzner and his graduate students are offering a course on Coursera that combines research with a MOOC (massive open online course) for the first time.

 

“All students who sign up for the course will be given an opportunity to work on specific research projects under the leadership of prominent bioinformatics scientists from different countries, who have agreed to interact and mentor their respective teams.”

 

“The natural progression of education is for people to make a transition from learning to research, which is a huge jump for many students, and essentially impossible for students in isolated areas,” said Ph.D. student Phillip Compeau, who helped develop the online course. “By integrating the research with an interactive text and a MOOC, it creates a pipeline to streamline this transition.”
