The Art of Pi: A Colorful Data Visualization

The Art of Pi:  A Colorful Data Visualization | Foresight Research Irregular | Scoop.it

Using Circos, a circular visualization software, Cristian Ilies Vasile and Martin Krzywinski created these vibrant representations of π, φ and e.


Cristian Ilies Vasile had the idea of connecting each digit of π to its successive digit with links to the position of the numerically corresponding segments. Martin Krzywinski added to Vasile’s visualization “by showing the transition probabilities for each digit across bins of 10 digits” and did this for φ and e as well for the first 1,000 digits, followed by the first 2,000 digits.

Next, Krzywinski created a lovely distribution plot of the numbers using red-yellow-blue Brewer palette to map their digits and plot them on an Archimedean spiral.

For more details of the project, check out Martin Krzywinski’s website.

Pew’s latest report: notable findings on race and privacy in social media

Pew’s latest report: notable findings on race and privacy in social media | Foresight Research Irregular | Scoop.it

58% of teens cloak their messages either through inside jokes or other obscure references, with more older teens (62%) engaging in this practice than younger teens (46%). This is the practice that I’ve seen significantly rise since I first started doing work on teens’ engagement with social media. It’s the source of what Alice Marwick and I describe as “social steganography” in our paper on teen privacy practices.

Интеллектуалы и их неудовлетворенность

Интеллектуалы и их неудовлетворенность | Foresight Research Irregular | Scoop.it
О публичных интеллектуалах в России не спорят, потому что неясны исходные критерии публичности и интеллектуализма. Статья Якоби — классика изучения этих вопросов.
Vasily Gatov's insight:

В последние годы мы переживаем всплеск интереса к риторике. Но, странным образом, этот пробудившийся интерес никак не сказывается на манере письма ученых. Прежде всего потому, что, как заметил Брайан Викерс в книге «В защиту риторики», этот энтузиазм проходит мимо самой сердцевины риторики — уверенного вмешательства в общественные дела. Если мы просто изучаем старые тексты по риторике, мы обходимся с ними неправильно: они предназначались вовсе не для изучения. Это были практические инструкции, и нельзя их читать без стремления воплотить эти наставления на практике: это все равно, что читать учебник по теннису или бриджу без намерения потом играть самому [18].

engadget: Sony's 4K Handycam and HXR-IFR5 4K Interface Unit prototypes eyes-on

engadget: Sony's 4K Handycam and HXR-IFR5 4K Interface Unit prototypes eyes-on | Foresight Research Irregular | Scoop.it

Posted by Brian Heater on January 7, 2013 • 


"No question, today's Sony press conference was all about the 4K. TVs, media services and even 4K recording for consumers. The latter arrived in the form of a couple of prototypes. First off was the generically labelled 4K Consumer Camcorder, a prototype device that was hanging out in a glass case at the Sony booth after the event concluded -- though there was a Handycam logo on the side of the device. It's not a bad looking handheld -- about a standard size for a prosumer model, with a viewfinder, mic and handle at the top. As for specs? No such luck at this early stage."

Data Wall: IBM Think Exhibit

Data Wall: IBM Think Exhibit | Foresight Research Irregular | Scoop.it

Located on Jaffe Drive at Lincoln Center in New York, the THINK exhibit combined three unique experiences to engage visitors in a conversation about how we can improve the way we live and work. 

 

The IBM data wall was the introduction to the Think Exhibit at the Lincoln Center. This exhibit celebrated its centennial year, and 100 years of human progress.

The wall aimed to educate the public about five areas of interest to the New York community. These included air quality, water waste, potential solar energy, fraud detection, and traffic sensing.

The Camera Versus the Human Eye, by Roger Cicala

The Camera Versus the Human Eye, by Roger Cicala | Foresight Research Irregular | Scoop.it

Posted by Roger Cicala on November 17, 2012

 

(...) The Eye is Not a Camera System
Having gotten the answer to the original discussion, I could have left things alone and walked away with yet another bit of fairly useless trivia filed away to amaze my online friends with. But NOOoooo. When I have a bunch of work that needs doing, I find I’ll almost always choose to spend another couple of hours reading more articles about human vision.


You may have noticed the above section left out some of the eye-to-camera analogies, because once you get past the simple measurements of aperture and lens, the rest of the comparisons don’t fit so well.


Consider the eye’s sensor, the retina. The retina is almost the same size (32mm in diameter) as the sensor on a full frame camera (35mm in diameter). After that, though, almost everything is different."
