Facebook's Graph Search worries security experts

Facebook's Graph Search worries security experts | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
Post highlighting embarrassing things raises questions of user privacy with Graph Search, which Facebook users cannot opt out of

 

Facebook believes its responsibility is to provide the privacy settings, while users are responsible for using them. "You control who you share your interests and likes with on Facebook," the company said Thursday in an emailed statement.

 

When joining Facebook, people trade their personal information for free use of the social network. Given that, security experts agree that people are responsible for controlling who sees that information.

 

However, some experts believe Facebook does not go far enough in educating users about the potential threats in keeping information public. Because Graph Search makes all that personal information easily searchable, education on its dangers should be a much higher priority for Facebook.

 

===> "Some people do not grasp the importance of Graph Search," said Bogdon Botezatu, a senior e-threat analyst for Bitdefender. "So maybe it would be better for Facebook to actually inform people that some things will change." <===

Mohamed Amine Chatti's ongoing research on Knowledge and Learning: A Reference Model for Learning Analytics

Mohamed Amine Chatti's ongoing research on Knowledge and Learning: A Reference Model for Learning Analytics | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

Via Ana Cristina Pratas
luiy's insight:

Recently, there is an increasing interest in learning analytics in Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL). Generally, learning analytics deals with the development of methods that harness educational datasets to support the learning process. Learning analytics (LA) is a multi-disciplinary field involving machine learning, artificial intelligence, information retrieval, statistics and visualisation. LA is also a field in which several related areas of research in TEL converge. These include academic analytics, action analytics and educational data mining. In this paper, we investigate the connections between LA and these related fields. We describe a reference model for LA based on four dimensions, namely data and environments (what?), stakeholders (who?), objectives (why?) and methods (how?). We then review recent publications on LA and its related fields and map them to the four dimensions of the reference model. Furthermore, we identify various challenges and research opportunities in the area of LA in relation to each dimension.

Apache Hadoop is a newcomer in scientific computing, and is welcomed as a great new addition to already existing systems. In this post I mean to give an introduction to systems for scientific computing, and I make an attempt at giving Hadoop a place in this picture. I start by discussing arguably the most important concept in scientific computing: parallel computing; what is it, how does it work, and what tools are available?

Via zendreamer, Wildcat2030
luiy's insight:
Autopoiesis is the word!

 

I have introduced the theory of living systems developed by Maturana and Varela (technically known as autopoiesis) in previous articles.

In essence these two mould-breaking Chilean biologists argued that a living system should not be defined in terms of its attributes (e.g. growth or reproduction) which ran counter to the common practice of the time.

Maturana and Varela wanted to define living systems in a more philosophically independent way by suggesting that a living system is one "whose only products are itself" - which is actually massively profound if you think about it.

 

 

..... about roles:

 

When we apply the Processes Component at the Group System Level it raises for me the question of roles in social networks and the interaction between them.

In Tom Quick's (University College London) excellent Introduction to Autopoiesis Tom suggests that:

 

'in crude terms a system is autopoietic if the bits and pieces of which it is composed interact with each other in such a way as to continually produce and maintain that set of bits and pieces and the relationships between them'.

 

A personal theory which I am developing, based on this concept (referred tothe closure of the nervous system) proposes that:

1) Each role in a social network should be defined not in terms of its outputs or objectives but instead in terms of the transformations (and instantiations)it makes to the other roles in the system.

2) Collectively the role interactions should create a positive feedback loop in the sense that each role is fully defined in terms of its interactions with other roles.

Finally we can go on to interpret these 4 living system principles at the overall System or Ecosystem level....etc

Special issue of Journal of ETS on learning analytics is now available (ed. George Siemens)

Enrique Rubio:

 

Completa e interesante referencia sobre 'learning analytics', de la mano de George Siemens.

 

En el actual tránsito hacia la educación digital, resulta imprescendible la incorporación de nuevas 'analíticas' asociadas a las 'trazas digitales' que dejamos (tanto profesores como estudiantes), mediante la extracción de las correspondientes estadísticas y matrices de datos  (propias del tradicional  'Análisis de Redes Sociales' o de indicadores identificados a título propio o estándares), para su tratamiento y visualización gráfica posterior.

 

En el CICEI (http://www.cicei.com/), estamos desarrollando plugins para la extracción de datos (a partir de las mencionadas trazas digitales), de Elgg y Moodle, en formato de matriz utilizado por Pajek, para su proceso y visualización gráfica posterior. Inicialmente, pueden generarse las matrices de amistad y colaboración, pudiéndose analizarse, en el caso de Elgg, recursos tales como: blogs, galería de imágenes, marcadores, foros, videos, páginas, subpáginas, y ficheros. Puede filtrase por fechas y/o tipo de colaboración.

 

Las matrices correspondientes, pueden generarse para los siguientes conjuntos de usuarios: 'Amigos' de un usuario; 'Miembros de un grupo'; o 'Todos los usuarios de la red social', en nuestro caso 'Sociedad y Tecnología' (http://www.sociedadytecnologia.org/).

 

En el caso de Moodle, de forma similar a como lo hace SNAPP (http://research.uow.edu.au/learningnetworks/seeing/snapp/index.html/), generamos matrices de colaboración (en el formato Pajeck), con las interacciones que se producen en los foros (para un foro, para uno o mas foros del curso, o para todos los foros de uno o mas cursos).

 

 

"The Society for Learning Analytics Research defines learning analytics as the measurement, collection, analysis and reporting of data about learners and their contexts, for purposes of understanding and optimizing learning and the environments in which it occurs (http://www.solaresearch.org/mission/about/)."

***We are now inviting papers from research students and early career researchers in the Humanities for the 2013 Digital Transformers Symposium. Please read on to find out what types of contribution we are looking for***

Ways of understanding and analysing digital data and digitally mediated environments are varied and complex. The skills required are increasingly specialised and do not necessarily conform to any particular theoretical or epistemological perspective. At the same time, an expanding set of broadly applicable concepts, techniques and methods are emerging that can be used across or tailored to the needs of specific Humanities disciplines. Examples include data visualisation techniques, text and data mining, network analysis, and theories and concepts around the socio-cultural, socio-political and cognitive processes affecting the use and interpretation of digital data and environments.

Themes to be explored in the Symposium include:

Key concepts and theories informing the study of digital data and digitally mediated environments.The wider socio-political, philosophical and cultural concepts/issues surrounding these.Methodological approaches to the study of digital data and digitally mediated environments.Techniques and tools that can be used for analysis of the above.

We are pleased to share our paper, "Social Network Analysis and the Evaluation of Leadership Networks, " which has been published in The Leadership Quarterly  Volume 21, Issue 4, August 2010, Pages 600-619

ukituki's curator insight, January 22, 2013 4:35 AM

Leadership development practitioners have become increasingly interested in
networks as a way to strengthen relationships among leaders in fields,
communities, and organizations. This paper offers a framework for
conceptualizing different types of leadership networks and uses case
examples to identify outcomes typically associated with each type of
network. One challenge for the field of leadership development has been how
to evaluate leadership networks.

luiy's insight:

Hay que estar consciente, además, de que con cada nueva ola de digitalización, elegimos lo que nos parece lo más importante y rechazamos el 90% de los archivos disponibles. Esa elección se hace según criterios circunstanciales y de moda, en nombre de los cuales no se habría conservado ni a Van Gogh, ni a Rimbaud. Y podríamos decir lo mismo de la memoria de la gente común, y de su vida cotidiana, a pesar de ser tan apreciada también por los historiadores. Quizás habría que pronunciar aquí una ley: mientras más poderosa y sofisticada es la tecnología, más inmediata, intensa y planetaria es la comunicación y más riesgo corre la memoria de ser efímera, a menos que se le clasifique inmediatamente como "histórica".
De manera inversa, huellas de pies de niños en la arcilla, como las que acaban de descubrir en cuevas prehistóricas, pueden quedar intactas durante milenios. Perder nuestra memoria en el momento en el que el tiempo social e histórico se aceleran vertiginosamente es peligroso. Cuando nos enfrentamos con la velocidad, con lo desconocido, en una aventura humana cada vez más audaz, es esencial cultivar nuestra memoria, saber quiénes somos y de dónde venimos, guardar la memoria de las lecciones de la historia.
