Carla Gentry CSPO's curator insight, June 12, 11:45 AM

It’s true that Big Data has become a big buzzword, but there is a real meaning behind all of the hype. When utilized correctly, enterprises in various sectors can benefit big from Big Data. With the right technology and a clear Big Data roadmap, companies can see improvements in customer care, security efforts, technology growth and deeper customer insights.

Nature Methods requires authors to share their code and data | Opensource.com | Homo Numericus Bis | Scoop.it
After 14 decades of publishing scientific articles, a credibility crisis happened. The public found out that many published articles were not reproducible. As a reaction to this revelation, Nature Methods, one of a collection of scientific journals under the Nature umbrella, began to adopt policies that require authors to share their code and data.

Google’s New All-Seeing Satellites Have Huge Potential—For Good and Evil | Business | WIRED | Homo Numericus Bis | Scoop.it
Mlik Sahib's insight:

"If Google finds ways of using these satellites that ends up making users’ lives more interesting and convenient, most people are unlikely to object, just like revelations of NSA surveillance haven’t exactly dented Gmail’s market share. But people may find the idea of Google looking down from the heavens on their physical selves more discomfiting than peering through their browsers at their virtual personas. After all, putting an all-seeing Google eye in space gives a whole new meaning to “do not track.”

Jeux numériques épistémiques et évaluation des apprentissages

Jeux numériques épistémiques et évaluation des apprentissages | Homo Numericus Bis | Scoop.it
La question de l’évaluation des apprentissages dans le cadre de l’utilisation de jeux numériques en classe relève du paradoxe. En effet, un jeu intègre toujours un mécanisme d’évaluation du joueur. Cette évaluation peut être qualifiée de formative dans la mesure où elle consiste à lui renvoyer des informations sous forme de rétroactions régulières et adaptées qui lui permettent d’évaluer, à tout moment, la pertinence de ses choix stratégiques qu’il peut donc être amené à réviser. En ce sens, un jeu constitue un espace de réflexivité permettant au joueur d’éprouver sa manière de penser et d’agir dans le cadre de la résolution de problèmes.

500K Women Gave Up Their Boob Data To Build This Bra | TechCrunch

500K Women Gave Up Their Boob Data To Build This Bra | TechCrunch | Homo Numericus Bis | Scoop.it
True&Co, the e-commerce startup that aims to bring us the perfect fitting bra, took data from a million boobs to build its own line of intimates -- in..
Mlik Sahib's insight:

"The algorithm isn’t perfect though. Lam disclosed True&Co is currently satisfying 8 out of 10 women with just the self-reported data. But the company doesn’t have a good bra for the “Mulberry” type, which suits “women with full sides” and accounts for 3% of the population, admits Lam. In other words, women with smaller curvature but who still bust out of the side of their bra still don’t have much of an option here.

She believes that as the company gets more data from more hundreds of thousands of women who take the quiz, True&Co will discover even more body types and be able to help either create a bra just for them or suggest the right type of bra already on the site to truly support many more unique boobs.

“This is just the beginning of the future of shopping,” says Lam, “and True&Co has only just scratched the surface on its goal to deliver on the perfect fit,” she insists."

In the Near Future, Only Very Wealthy Colleges Will Have English Departments | New Republic

In the Near Future, Only Very Wealthy Colleges Will Have English Departments | New Republic | Homo Numericus Bis | Scoop.it
Within a few decades, contemporary literature departments (e.g., English) will be largely extinct—they’ll be as large and vibrant as Classics departments are today, which is to say, not very active at all. Only wealthy institutions will be able to afford the luxury of faculty devoted to studying written and printed text. Communications, rhetoric/composition, and media studies will take English’s place. The change isn’t necessarily an evil to be decried but simply reflects how most people now generate and read narratives and text—they do it on digitally based multimedia platforms.Why should college students read narrative prose when they get their fill of stories from television, cinema, and interactive video games?

Carla Gentry CSPO's curator insight, June 16, 4:15 PM

Personalization appeals to a Western, egocentric belief in individualism. Yet it is based on the generalizing statistical distributions and normalized curves methods used to classify and categorize large populations. Personalization purports to be uniquely meaningful, yet it alienates us in its mass application. Data tracking and personalized advertising is often described as "creepy." Personalized ads and experiences are supposed to reflect individuals, so when these systems miss their mark, they can interfere with a person's sense of self. It's hard to tell whether the algorithm doesn't know us at all, or if it actually knows us better than we know ourselves. And it's disconcerting to think that there might be a glimmer of truth in what otherwise seems unfamiliar. This goes beyond creepy, and even beyond the sense of being watched.

Mlik Sahib's insight:
"General Information

 

Welcome to the City Dashboard! This platform shows you what is going on in Amsterdam at this moment.

The city in graphics

What is the average speed of traffic in the city? How many cultural events are going on? What are the levels of noise and what are people tweeting about? Answers to these and many other questions are featured and visualized in this dashboard of Amsterdam. Play and experiment with it, make different combinations and get to know the city real-time!

Translating data into accessible information

Citizens and (government) agencies create and collect a lot of data, which they are now opening up for reuse more and more. This dashboard makes use of the latest open data from a wide range of municipal services. By using the Linked Data API from the CitySDK project , this City Dashboard becomes easily transferable to other cities using the same interface. The CitySDK Linked Data API also makes information searchable and available on demand, enabling developers to create applications such as this dashboard.

How to use the City Dashboard

A city consists of many elements, shown on this dashboard as the following domains: transport, environment, statistics, economy, social, cultural & security. For each domain, the actual status is shown, based on blocks of 24 hours. The data is refreshed every 10 seconds. The information is captured in charts, graphs and on a map of the city. Larger dots and darker colors symbolize higher values and vice versa. On the map, you can choose which layers you want to see: from only one domain to interesting combinations and all of them together. Personalize what you are seeing and try to discover the city of Amsterdam on a whole new level!

No data available?

We aim to display all the numbers, graphics and other results in this City Dashboard as readable as possible. Since this platform collects data from different kind of sources that otherwise are stored in multiple databases, it may happen that particular data isn't available for a moment. In that case the data source is interrupted."

The internet of things isn't about things. It's about cheap data | Gigaom | Homo Numericus Bis | Scoop.it
The value that comes from connecting your thermostat to the internet isn’t that you can now control it from your smartphone, or that it’s a theoretical home for new ads. The value is that you suddenly have access to cheap information about the temperature of your home, and by collating other data points or simple extrapolation techniques, you also have access to detailed information about what is happening in the home. This can be cool. It can be creepy. And it can be convenient. But as is always the case when we encounter technological shifts, the internet of things is really a tool. ...

Mais elle possède une utilité supplémentaire : dans ce bain d’informations gigantesque, elle est le lieu où l’on peut trouver le code, où toutes les questions peuvent être posées et l’on vous donne le cadre pour organiser tout cela. Elle assume une fonction unique dans la société."
