Network diagrams simplified | Kim Rees

Network diagrams simplified | Kim Rees | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

Network diagrams are notoriously messy. Even a small number of nodes can be overwhelmed by their chaotic placement and relationships. Cody Dunne of HCIL showed off his new work in simplifying these complex structures. In essence, he aggregates leaf nodes into a fan glyph that describes the underlying data in its size, arc, and color. Span nodes are similarly captured into crescent glyphs.

 

The result is an easy to read, high level look at the network. You can easily compare different sections of the network, understand areas that may have been occluded by the lines in a traditional diagram, and see relationships far more quickly.

 

I love the elegance and simplicity of Cody's work.

luiy's insight:

Living systems according to Parent (1996) are by definition “open self-organizing systems that have the special characteristics of life and interact with their environment. This takes place by means of information and material-energy exchanges. Living systems can be as simple as a single cell or as complex as a supranational organization such as the European Union. Regardless of their complexity, they each depend upon the same essential twenty subsystems (or processes) in order to survive and to continue the propagation of their species or types beyond a single generation”.[4]

Miller said that systems exist at 8 “nested” hierarchical levels: cell, organ, organism, group, organization, community, society, and supranational system. In more detail:


{{The eight levels of living systems are: cells: a basic building block of life organs: the principle components are cells, organized in simple, multi-cellular systems. organisms: there are three kinds of organisms: fungi, plants and animals. Each has distinctive cells, tissues and body plans and carries out life processes differently. groups: these contain two or more organisms and their relationships. organizations: these involve one of more groups with their own control systems for doing work. communities: they include both individual persons and groups, as well as groups which are formed and are responsible for governing or providing services to them. societies: these are loose associations of communities, with systematic relationships between and among them. supranational systems: organizations of societies with a supraordinate system of influence and control}}

Problem however is that not many people have a clue what Internet is or if they do   think about different things, like the World Wide Web of Apps & Cloud services. And they have a wide variety of views how “Internet” should be governed. Recently at the ITU world conference on international telecommunications (WCIT-12) in Dubai these different views came to a conflict where a number of member countries refused to sign the treaty. On the one side nation states expressed their sovereign right to regulate ( and if necessary block) internal and external Internet traffic; and on the other side countries who express the view that the Internet is by  design is a transnational structure with a “multi-stakeholder” organisation to run it and further develop it. I subscribe to this latter view and will explain in this blog why and how this can and will be done.

We don't need more data scientists -- just make big data easier to use

We don't need more data scientists -- just make big data easier to use | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
Sure, more data scientists would be great. But Scott Brave, of Baynote, says the better solution is to create analytics products that are so easy to use that you don't even need a data scientist.
luiy's insight:
Data Architecture

The key to reducing complexity is to limit scope. Nearly every ecommerce business is interested in capturing user behavior – engagements, purchases, offline transactions and social data – and almost every one of them has a catalog and customer profiles.

Limiting scope to this basic functionality would allow us to create templates for the standard data inputs, making both data capture and connecting the pipes much simpler. We’d also need to find meaningful ways to package the different data architectures and tools, which currently include Hadoop, Hbase, Hive, Pig, Cassandra and Mahout. These packages should be fit for purpose. It comes down to the 80/20 rule: 80 percent of big data use cases (which is all most ecommerce businesses need), can be achieved with 20 percent of the effort and technology.


Machine Learning

Surely we need data scientists in machine learning, right? Well, if you have very customized needs, perhaps. But most of the standard challenges that require big data, like recommendation engines and personalization systems, can be abstracted out. For example, a large part of the job of a data scientist is crafting “features,” which are meaningful combinations of input data that make machine learning effective. As much as we’d like to think that all data scientists have to do is plug data into the machine and hit “go,” the reality is people need to help the machine by giving it useful ways of looking at the world.


Analytics

It’s never easy to automatically surface the most valuable insights from data. There are ways to provide domain-specific lenses, however, that allow business experts to experiment – much like a data scientist. This seems to be the easiest problem to solve, as there are a variety of domain-specific analytics products already on the market.

But these products are still more constrained and less accessible to domain experts than they could be. There is definitely room for a friendlier interface. We also need to take into consideration how the machine learns from the results that analytics deliver. This is the critical feedback loop, and business experts want to provide modifications into that loop. This is another opportunity to provide a templatized interface.

As we learned in the CMS space, these solutions won’t solve every problem every time. But applying a technology solution to the broader set of data issues will relieve the data scientist bottleneck. Once domain experts are able to work directly with machine learning systems, we may enter a new age of big data where we learn from each other. Maybe then, big data will actually solve more problems than it creates.

Social Network Analysis of “Big Data” to Improve Marketing Performance

Social Network Analysis of “Big Data” to Improve Marketing Performance | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

When I was in school, I was a fan of behavioral economics and spent a lot of time studying social networks from the perspective of both economics and social psychology. The reason these topics attracted me was that I wanted to understand the different ways people influence each other’s decision-making. I was a complete academic bear and not a marketing person at all at that time. However, I was eager to learn the intersection of these two concepts, and how they could be applied to business as well as society as a whole.


The study of this intersection is known as Social Network Analysis (SNA). But what exactly does it mean? Wikipedia gives us a simplified, but clear enough, definition. Let me tailor it a little bit. Social network analysis views social relationships with nodes and lines, using nodes to represent individual actors and lines between nodes to represent the relationships between the individuals, such as friendship, kinship, organizational positions, and so on. Combined with graph theory, the networks can be depicted in a social network diagram. The strength of the relationships can be depicted by the length or transparency of the lines in the diagram. The social influence of individuals can be viewed directly from the network diagram by the number of lines connected to the nodes and the scale of the nodes.


It's complicated, but SNA can deliver some fantastic insight for organizations looking to tap into the power of a social network.
