Portrayed emotions in the movie "Forrest Gump"

Portrayed emotions in the movie "Forrest Gump" | Fledgling yet Burgeoning! Infographics Conquest :D | Scoop.it


Here the authors present a dataset with a description of portrayed emotions in the movie ”Forrest Gump”.


A total of 12 observers independently annotated emotional episodes regarding their temporal location and duration.


The nature of an emotion was characterized with basic attributes, such as arousal and valence, as well as explicit emotion category labels.


In addition, annotations include a record of the perceptual evidence for the presence of an emotion.


Two variants of the movie were annotated separately: 1) an audio-movie version of Forrest Gump that has been used as a stimulus for the acquisition of a large public functional brain imaging dataset, and 2) the original audio-visual movie.


The authors present reliability and consistency estimates that suggest that both stimuli can be used to study visual and auditory emotion cue processing in real-life like situations.


In addition, aggregate time series of inter-observer agreement with respect to particular attributes of portrayed emotions are provided to facilitate adoption of these data.

How to Turn Infographics Into Effective Teaching Tools

How to Turn Infographics Into Effective Teaching Tools | Fledgling yet Burgeoning! Infographics Conquest :D | Scoop.it


Infographics have already established themselves as engaging news and marketing tools, but they are also entering the education space in new and exciting ways.


Teachers can find infographics useful classroom tools in a number of ways. Most prominently, a good graphic makes information easily accessible, as it feeds into many students’ natural tendency to learn by seeing and interacting.


Infographics can also offer a rare chance for crossover between math and language arts, something that many teachers find difficult to do.



So, for teachers, or parents with curious children, who want to use infographics as classroom tools, here are five steps to take while writing your curriculum.


1. Choose the right infographic

Three questions a teacher should ask about about a graphic before using it in the classroom should be:

  • Does the graphic use verifiable information? Make sure you know the graphic’s sources, and whether they can be trusted.
  • Does the visualization use best practices? Are you showing students the best example of how information can be presented graphically? Is the graphic distorting the information, and if so, for what end? 
  • Is the graphic engaging? Use an intriguing infographic to keep your students involved and emphasize why it’s important to produce engaging content.

2. Create some context

Put the students in small groups of two to four.


Use a worksheet to prompt students to evaluate the infographic for conclusions they may be able to draw from it. 


3. Have students analyze the graphics on their own

Put the students in small groups of two to four. Use a worksheet to prompt students to evaluate the infographic for conclusions they may be able to draw from it. 


4. Debrief as a class

Have each one of the groups share what narratives and conclusions they drew from the graphic. Ask them to support their conclusions with evidence they found in the graphic and the background information. Then start a classroom discussion on the differences and similarities between each group’s findings.


5. Evaluate

While it’s great to have a class discussion and get students thinking, every lesson needs an evaluation in today’s school system.

Have each of the students write a short essay in which they develop an argument and support conclusions drawn from their experience with the graphic.

5 Rules of Researching Infographics

5 Rules of Researching Infographics | Fledgling yet Burgeoning! Infographics Conquest :D | Scoop.it


What could be worse than a poorly designed infographic?

A poorly sourced one. Too many infographics and data visualizations are put together after hardly a perfunctory Google search or a quick trip to Wikipedia.


As a result, much too often these days we see infographics that end with something like this (we’ve toned down the colors on purpose, so the original piece isn’t easily identifiable – no need to point fingers)...


Infographics have become a widely popular form of content, and that puts a weight on the shoulders of the design community: to make sure the information they visualize is not only accurate, but the most appropriate information/ data for the topic in question.


1. Track down the original source and confirm the data...


2. Make sure you’re using the most recent data available...


3. Do not, ever, source information from user-generated content websites...4. 99% of the Web is just your starting point...5. Limit the number of sources you’re using...


Cliché, but true: Less is more...


So, all said and done, how should a source list look?

How Do Our Brains Process Infographics?MIT "Mongrel" Shows Peripheral Vision at Work☜(ˆ▿ˆc) | Fledgling yet Burgeoning! Infographics Conquest :D | Scoop.it


Infographics can contain a wealth of useful, interesting, and captivating information, but only if readers take the time to survey the entire graphic.


It’s no secret that the typical Internet user quickly bounces from site to site while shuffling among multiple tabs and windows.


With the added distraction from smartphones, TV, and print media, time spent on the Internet is valuable – especially for marketers and advertisers, who covet each and every second a user’s eyeballs are glued to the screen.


In order to better understand how Internet users view and understand infographics, Visual.ly teamed up with Dr. Ruth Rosenholtz, the Principal Research Scientist at the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT. Rosenholtz, who holds a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, leads a research team that studies human vision, including visual search, peripheral vision, perceptual organization, and the impact of visual clutter on task performance.


Rosenholtz and her team developed a process that reveals how the human brain uses peripheral vision to view images.


Rosenholtz created a computer program that takes an image and returns an alternate version called a “mongrel.”


The mongrel shows how the brain interprets an image when centered on a particular point of fixation.

Throughout history, the best data visualizations have served as the public's window onto a complex world...


“Going back a long time people saw diagrams as tremendous potential to communicate scientific ideas,” Dr. Johanna Kieniewicz, lead curator of the show, told The Independent.


“We are in an era of big data, but there was also an explosion in data back then, particularly related to vital statistics and climate.


They too were trying to reconcile how to work with the information and communicate it to the public.”

Want to see the impact Google's algorithm changes have had on SEO over the years? Check out this infographic we created with Moz.


In the beginning, Google's search engine really wasn't all that good. This was back in the late 90s/early 00s, when search engines were little more than keyword-matching and link-counting machines.


Ranking high in search results could be accomplished by essentially using a simple, two-step procedure:

  • Step 1: Stuff your keyword phrase into your page/website as many times as possible.
  • Step 2: Get as many gosh-darn inbound links as you possibly could.

Use big data wisely and it can provide big insights

Use big data wisely and it can provide big insights | Fledgling yet Burgeoning! Infographics Conquest :D | Scoop.it


Data science has great promise but it requires teamwork and local expertise to succeed, says Robert Kirkpatrick.


Speed read
  • The Global Pulse initiative is using big data to assess attitudes and trends

  • Social media analysis can reveal food price indicators, perceptions and the results of advocacy efforts

  • But local knowledge is needed to correctly interpret data patterns

.

.

.

Big data, and the art of data science, offer new options in the policymaking toolkit. Data science is not a quick, technology-based solution, however.


It takes collaboration, intuition and cultural insight. To be able to correctly interpret patterns in big data that are relevant to human development requires a nuanced understanding of local contexts, and therefore it is beneficial to do the analysis close to where the development needs are.


"We at Global Pulse are encouraged by the emerging practice of applying data science to development, but urge newcomers to the field to remember the importance of involving local partners and building the capacity to do data science from the ground up..."


“The development community can embrace the craft of ‘data science’ to enhance evidence-based decision-making.”

Joe Boutte's curator insight, December 31, 2013 8:01 AM

Everyday leadership also means being aware of the technology that enhances how we influence people.  According to this infographic, social media has been around since 1969.  I would posit that social media has been around since the printing press was invented.  Although early media was not interactive, it accelerated communications and person-to-person interaction.  We're social beings and if we expand our thinking, even cave art was social media.  As Solomon said, there's nothing new under the sun.  We have innovations and inventions, but the foundational activity is communication that moves us from caves to condos and beyond.

Emma Stutzman's curator insight, January 3, 2014 2:03 PM

This picture shows how social media has developed over the years. It mentions how many people thought that social media was started with facebook, when in reality it was really started by other projects that you can see above. This picture/concept shows the differences between which sites took off and which didn't, depending on our cultural preferences.
