Researchers Use Data from Cheap Cell Phones in the Developing World to Combat Disease Outbreaks | MIT Technology Review

Researchers Use Data from Cheap Cell Phones in the Developing World to Combat Disease Outbreaks | MIT Technology Review | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
Collecting and analyzing information from simple cell phones can provide surprising insights into how people move about and behave—and even help us understand the spread of diseases.
luiy's insight:

At a computer in her office at the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, epidemiologist Caroline Buckee points to a dot on a map of Kenya’s western highlands, representing one of the nation’s thousands of cell-phone towers. In the fight against malaria, Buckee explains, the data transmitted from this tower near the town of Kericho has been epidemiological gold.

 

When she and her colleagues studied the data, she found that people making calls or sending text messages originating at the Kericho tower were making 16 times more trips away from the area than the regional average. What’s more, they were three times more likely to visit a region northeast of Lake Victoria that records from the health ministry identified as a malaria hot spot. The tower’s signal radius thus covered a significant waypoint for transmission of malaria, which can jump from human to human via mosquitoes. Satellite images revealed the likely culprit: a busy tea plantation that was probably full of migrant workers. The implication was clear, Buckee says. “There will be a ton of infected [people] there.”

Our Future Might Be Bright: The Tentative, Rosy Predictions of Google's Eric Schmidt

Our Future Might Be Bright: The Tentative, Rosy Predictions of Google's Eric Schmidt | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
The rhetoric Schmidt and his co-author Jared Cohen employ in their new book is clever but misleading.

-

A new book by Google chairman Eric Schmidt and Google Ideas director Jared Cohen plots out the future of digital technology, with an emphasis on global affairs. The New Digital Age foresees, in the not too distant future that, though wars may become more common as the costs to engage decrease, death tolls will fall as robot soldiers take to the battlefield. The book envisions whole governments being backed up in the online cloud where data becomes less vulnerable to physical disaster. Other chapters from the book consider the evolution of citizenship, states, revolution, terrorism, and foreign aid as impacted by digital technologies. The authors conclude that the new digital age is unpredictable, but that on the whole, it will be a brighter place because of electronic technology.

That the book delves so deeply into technology's impact on the world stage is no surprise given the authors' other interests. Cohen was an adviser to Condoleeza Rice and Hillary Clinton at the State Department, and Schmidt seems to be embracing a role as corporate statesman, having just made high-profile trips to North Korea and Myanmar.


Via Wildcat2030
luiy's insight:

Schmidt and Cohen are right about one thing: "The digital revolution will continue." But while technology will cause great change, our biggest challenges will require changes in us, as people and societies. Fancy gadgets won't turn around a failing for-profit -- even in our tech-drenched world, leadership, management, and employee capacity are what matter. Similarly, fancy gadgets won't rescue a world intent on resource extraction, climate change, extreme inequality, and ongoing conflict -- even in a tech-immersed future, leadership, institutions, and global activism are what matter. The technological tools of leadership and activism are a distant concern relative to whether there is good leadership and activism in the first place.

As an alternative to dot density maps, Binify by Kevin Schaul allows you to map with hexagon binning in Python. Dot density maps are a straightforward way to visualize location data, but when you have too many locations, points can overlap and obscur clusters and trends. That's where binning comes in. Generally speaking, the goal is to look at an area on a map and then count how many points are within that area. Do that across the entire area. Grab the package on GitHub and go to town.

TECHNOLOGIES OF COOPERATION. by Andrea Saveri, Howard Rheingold, and Kathi Vian | @hrheingold @asaveri

luiy's insight:
Mapping Key Concepts and Choices

Emerging digital technologies present new opportunities for developing complex cooperative strategies that change the way people work together to solve problems and generate wealth. Central to this class of cooperation-amplifying technologies are eight key clusters, each with distinctive contributions to cooperative strategy.

Each of these technology clusters can be viewed not only as a template for design of cooperative systems, but also as tools people can use to tune organizations, projects, processes, and markets for increased cooperation. Specifically, each can be used in distinctive ways to alter the key dimensions of cooperative systems—structure, rules, resources, thresholds, feedback, memory, and identity.

Naomi Klein: Time for big green to go fossil free | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

Some mainstream environmental organizations are trying to wean themselves from fossil fuel investments—but some aren’t.

luiy's insight:

The movement demanding that public interest institutions divest their holdings from fossil fuels is on a serious roll. At last count, there were active divestment campaigns on 305 campuses and in more than 100 US cities and states. The demand has spread to Canada, Australia, the Netherlands and Britain. And though officially launched just six months ago, the movement can already claim some provisional victories: four US colleges have announced their intention to divest their endowments from fossil fuel stocks and bonds, and in late April ten US cities made similar commitments, including San Francisco (Seattle came on board months ago).

luiy's insight:

El poder de un “like” o “me gusta” en Facebook es desconocido para muchos usuarios, quienes los dan sin reparo alguno, ya sea desde las publicaciones de sus amigos hasta el contenido de sus páginas favoritas. Sin embargo, el poder de este botón en la red social es tal que manifiesta no sólo lo que le agrada al usuario sino que el número de “likes” determina además cuántas otras personas verán esa misma historia. Desde su incursión en la red creada por Mark Zuckerberg, este botón sirvió para destacar las historias publicadas por los internautas y hacerlas distinguibles de las demás, ante el alto número de posts en los timelines. Esta decisión fue aprovechada de inmediato por las empresas que, en el número de clics favorables vieron el escaparate ideal para promover sus productos o contenidos. No obstante, ante furor del tráfico de simpatías en forma de “likes”, ahora Facebook se enfrenta a un problema que podría afectar sus ganancias.

Building a Picture of the Bomb Suspects | MIT Technology Review | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
Police can obtain huge quantities of social network data but must sort out the junk to glean useful information.
luiy's insight:

Within hours after the Boston marathon bombing suspects were identified, police probably obtained warrants to search extensive digital records from mobile phone networks and social media and e-mail providers.

The fast-growing rise of such data sets—and rise of network analysis tools to make sense of them—could be a boon in the investigation. It might reveal the existence of other evidence, further plots, or the identity of accomplices. But sorting the real information from the junk will be a challenge.

 

“The general number of law enforcement requests of e-mail and social network data has gone up by a wide margin,” says Hanni Fakhoury, a staff attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation in San Francisco. The result is that police agencies hold huge databases of stored information.

In the case of Google, such requests are rising rapidly. In the last six months of 2012, for example, Google reported receiving about 8,400 requests for user data, up from about 6,300 in the last six months of 2011. The company reports these data here.

A Longitudinal Study of Follow Predictors on Twitter

Follower count is important to Twitter users: it can indicate popularity and prestige. Yet, holistically, little is understood about what factors – like social behavior, message content, and network structure – lead to more followers. Such in-formation could help technologists design and build tools that help users grow their audiences. In this paper, we study 507 Twitter users and a half-million of their tweets over 15 months. Marrying a longitudinal approach with a negative binomial auto-regression model, we find that variables for message content, social behavior, and network structure should be given equal consideration when predicting link formations on Twitter. To our knowledge, this is the first longitudinal study of follow predictors, and the first to show that the relative contributions of social behavior and mes-sage content are just as impactful as factors related to social network structure for predicting growth of online social networks. We conclude with practical and theoretical impli-cations for designing social media technologies.

luiy's insight:

Followers are Twitter’s most basic currency. Building an audience of followers can create access to a network of social ties, resources, and influence. Yet, little is understood about how to grow such an audience. This paper examines multiple factors that affect tie formation and dissolution over time on the social media service Twitter. We collected
behavioral, content, and network data approximately every three months for fifteen months. We examine specific user social behavior choices, such as: proportions of directed communications versus broadcast communications [6]; the total number of tweets produced; communication burstiness; and profile completeness [30]. We also assessed numerous attributes specific to the content of users’ tweets, such as: propensity to express positive versus negative sentiment [26,37]; topical focus [40]; proportions of tweets with “meformer” content versus informational content [33]; frequency of others “retweeting” a user’s content [5]; linguistic sophistication (reading difficulty) of tweets; and hashtag usage. Finally, we evaluated the impact of users’ evolving social network structure, collecting snapshots of their friends and followers every three months for fifteen
months. With this, we can evaluate the effects of network status, reciprocity [18], and common network neighbors.


Our variables were selected from prominent theoretical constructs bridging social science, linguistics, computer mediated communications, and network theory. This paper compares the relative contributions of factors from each perspective for predicting link formations in online social networks. We take a temporal perspective and develop a model that accounts for social behavior, message content, and network elements at several intervals for over a year.

 

We use an auto-regressive, negative binomial regression  model to explore the changes in users’ follower counts over time. We find that message content significantly impacts follower growth. For example, in contrast to [26], we find that expressing negative sentiment has an adverse effect on  follower gain, whereas expressing positive sentiment helps to facilitate it. Similarly, we show that informational content attracts new followers with a relative impact that is roughly thirty times higher than the impact of “meformer” content, which deters growth. We also find that behavioral choices can also dramatically affect follower growth. For example, choosing to complete one’s profile and choosing directed communication strategies over broadcast strategies significantly stimulates follower growth over time. Finally, we show that even simple measures of topology and structure are useful predictors of evolutionary network growth

ScienceDirect.com - Computers in Human Behavior - Defining social networking sites and measuring their use: How narcissists differ in their use of Facebook and Twitter

Highlights•We examine the connection between narcissism and social networking site (SNS) use.•We differentiate among narcissism types, students/adults, and Facebook/Twitter.•We demonstrate how two different measures of use yield different results.•Facebook use is associated with exhibitionism for students but not for adults.•Twitter use is associated with Superiority for students while Facebook use is associated with Superiority for adults.As research on the connection between narcissism and social networking site (SNS) use grows, definitions of SNS and measurements of their use continue to vary, leading to conflicting results. To improve understanding of the relationship between narcissism and SNS use, as well as the implications of differences in definition and measurement, we examine two ways of measuring Facebook and Twitter use by testing the hypothesis that SNS use is positively associated with narcissism. We also explore the relation between these types of SNS use and different components of narcissism within college students and general adult samples. Our findings suggest that for college students, posting on Twitter is associated with the Superiority component of narcissistic personality while Facebook posting is associated with the Exhibitionism component. Conversely, adults high in Superiority post on Facebook more rather than Twitter. For adults, Facebook and Twitter are both used more by those focused on their own appearances but not as a means of showing off, as is the case with college students. Given these differences, it is essential for future studies of SNS use and personality traits to distinguish between different types of SNS, different populations, and different types of use.

luiy's insight:

Ciudad de México, 4 de mayo (SinEmbargo).– Un proyecto de largometraje y miniserie llamado Baktún pone el reflector sobre la lengua y cultura maya, que hasta ahora habían permanecido marginados de los medios masivos. Por primera vez se transmitirá una telenovela realizada en el corazón del mundo maya y hablada en el idioma local. La historia aborda el tema del fin de la cuenta larga desde la cosmovisión maya. Cuenta el periplo de Jacinto, quien ha dejado atrás su comunidad y vive en Nueva York pero la enfermedad grave de su padre lo hace regresar. Al llegar, Jacinto se enfrenta a una lucha por conquistar al amor de su infancia, por salvar a la comunidad de las amenazas de una transnacional y, en el proceso, recupera su cultura, su lengua y sus raíces. El resurgimiento de Jacinto –interpretado por Hilario Chi Canul, quien es además el asesor en la adaptación al maya– sucede a la par del fin e inicio de la cuenta larga, el 13 baktún en el calendario maya. La película aborda el reto de las comunidades indígenas del siglo XXI, el problema de cómo recuperar la cultura y tradiciones sin dejar de vivir en un mundo global. Este ha sido un tema que ha interesado a Bruno Cárcamo a lo largo de su trayectoria. Escribió para la serie “Sacbé, la ruta maya” en el Canal Once y en 2004 realizó un documental llamado “Voces en extinción”, que retrata la vida de cinco grupos indígenas cuya lengua está en riesgo de perderse.

Alphabétisation numérique et éducation aux médias de mes collègues enseignants.

Ma pratique en apprentissage dans des espaces éducatifs formels et surtout en non-formelle, me conduit à remarquer un changement dans l'apparence de la communication sur la médiation technologique dans ces espaces éducatifs. Dans le domaine de l'apprentissage et le domaine de l'éducation à la citoyenneté.
Il ya des débats houleux entre les éducateurs dans le domaine de l'apprentissage, ces derniers temps, à partir de perspectives différentes. Lorsque l'apprentissage est analysé, seulement du point de vue éducatif, on peut être induit en erreur en leur faisant croire que les nouvelles technologies représentent une panacée, selon les mots du prof dr. Ismar Lapin, qui serait responsable de changements significatifs dans le domaine de l'éducation. Le même professeur Ismar, souligne que Pierre Levy préfère situer l'apprentissage dans le cadre d'une «écologie cognitive», pleine de significations et de valeurs symboliques qui nourrit la société psychique et culturel contemporain.
Ce changement important m'amène à la relance d'un appel d'éducateurs, communicateurs, les ingénieurs et les gestionnaires de l'information de penser, de rassembler et d'évaluer l'introduction de nouvelles technologies dans l'éducation, se demandant en permanence par modèle de communication qui sous-tend le système éducatif spécifique . C'est ce qu'on appelle une information de gestion et de communication dans les espaces éducatifs. Ce projet comprend l'enseignement à distance EAD, l'éducation pour les médias, l'éducation et les médias, et l'éducation non formelle très. Dans tous ces systèmes est le même: l'apprentissage se fait en ce que l'individu se sent touché impliqué connecté. Ainsi, l'environnement induite par la technologie peut aider à produire des sens, devenant dans les médiations.

Analyser une sensation produite par cette expérience que le sauvetage de ma délicatesse perdu. «Transformer personnes dans plus de personnes», comme Paulo Freire.

IFTF: The Many Faces of Context Awareness

IFTF: The Many Faces of Context Awareness | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
luiy's insight:

In 1988, Mark Weiser laid the foundation for what he called the third wave of computing. The first wave was mainframe computing, followed by the second wave of desktop computing. The third wave, would be a kind of ubiquitous computing—in which technology would recede into the background of our lives. The world is now on the brink of this third wave, and at the heart of it is something we might call context awareness. In the simplest terms, context awareness just means having information about the immediate situation—the people, roles, activities, times, places, devices, and software that define the situation. But context awareness is also about meaning and meaning-making, and it is especially this piece of the technological puzzle—this sensemaking—that we address in this report. To understand the range of context-aware technologies, viewpoints, and applications, we developed a spectrum of context awareness, ranging from those that emphasize top-down design on one end to bottom-up emergence on the other. We hope that this framework will help you anticipate the kinds of successes and failures we'll see in this new wave of computing, as well as the social implications as computing moves into the environment.

A Multiverse of Exploration: The Future of Science 2021

Invisibility cloaks. The search for extraterrestrial intelligence. A Facebook for genes. These were just a few of the startling topics IFTF explored at our Technology Horizons Program conference in on the "Future of Science." More than a dozen scientists from UC Berkeley, Stanford, UC Santa Cruz, Scripps Research Institute, SETI, and private industry shared their edgiest research driving transformations in science. MythBusters' Adam Savage weighed in on the future of science education. All of their presentations were signals supporting IFTF's new "Future of Science" forecast, laid out in a new map titled "A Multiverse of Exploration: The Future of Science 2021" (featured on CNN's What's Next and BoingBoing). The map focuses on six big stories of science that will play out over the next decade: Decrypting the Brain, Hacking Space, Massively Multiplayer Data, Sea the Future, Strange Matter, and Engineered Evolution. Those stories are emerging from a new ecology of science shifting toward openness, collaboration, reuse, and increased citizen engagement in scientific research.
