11 Essential Hashtags for Academics - Academia Obscura

11 Essential Hashtags for Academics - Academia Obscura | Notes - Readings | Scoop.it
Just over a year ago I began tweeting as @AcademiaObscura, and in that time I have converted from a twitter sceptic to a fervent advocate. Twitter, and other social media tools, can be invaluable for connecting with others in your field, disseminating your work, and keeping up-to-date with the latest research and news. Indeed, once you are past the hump, Twitter becomes useful for all sorts of things. If you are new to Twitter I highly recommend the Thesis Whisperer’s explanation here (scroll down a little to the using twitter section) and LSE’s guide.

Text Analysis 101: Explicit Semantic Analysis (ESA) Explained

Text Analysis 101: Explicit Semantic Analysis (ESA) Explained | Notes - Readings | Scoop.it
How is Explicit Semantic Analysis achieved?
Wikipedia is a large and diverse knowledge base where each article can be considered a distinct concept. In Wikipedia based ESA, a concept is generated for each article. Each concept is then represented as a vector of the words which occur in the article, weighted by their tf-idf score.
The meaning of any given word can then be represented as a vector of that word’s relatedness, or “association weighting” to the Wikipedia based concepts.

Peer Review in the Humanities and Social Sciences: If It Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It?

Peer Review in the Humanities and Social Sciences: If It Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It? | Notes - Readings | Scoop.it
While much of the contemporary debate around peer review focuses on both journal articles and STEM fields, here we are going to focus on humanities and social science (HSS) fields where both longer articles and book-length projects are more common. Does HSS peer review have the same functions, goals, and challenges as STEM peer review?

The Free 'Big Data' Sources Everyone Should Know

The Free 'Big Data' Sources Everyone Should Know | Notes - Readings | Scoop.it
I always make the point that data is everywhere – and that a lot of it is free. Companies don’t necessarily have to build their own massive data repositories before starting with big data analytics. The moves by companies and governments to put large amounts of information into the public domain have made large volumes of data accessible to everyone.

Digging through messy data and doing numerous calculations just so you can submit a report or arrive at the result of your quarterly business development can sometimes be nigh impossible.

Desprogramar l’obsolescència imaginant la rellevància | blok de bid

Desprogramar l’obsolescència imaginant la rellevància | blok de bid | Notes - Readings | Scoop.it
Va succeir una vegada més, quan, entre canapè i canapè, vaig comentar que era bibliotecari: "I ara amb Internet, a què us dedicareu?" Constatar que en l’imaginari hem passat d’estar tranquil·lament llegint mentre passava la jornada al desnonament, d’avorrits a irrellevants, encén les nostres alarmes. Serà cert que el desenvolupament tecnològic convertirà les biblioteques en espais del passat mancants de futur? Ens agradaria creure  que només pensen així el qui no les freqüenten, aquells qui prèviament les consideraven un espai d’emmagatzematge i préstec de llibres, però entre nosaltres comença a sorgir cert neguit.

Semantic web semantics vs. vector embedding machine learning semantics - bobdc.blog

Semantic web semantics vs. vector embedding machine learning semantics - bobdc.blog | Notes - Readings | Scoop.it
When I presented "intro to the semantic web" slides in TopQuadrant product training classes, I described how people talking about "semantics" in the context of semantic web technology mean something specific, but that other claims for computerized semantics (especially, in many cases, "semantic search") were often vague attempts to use the word as a marketing term. Since joining CCRi, though, I've learned plenty about machine learning applications that use semantics to get real work done (often, "semantic search"), and they can do some great things.

El inicio de la guerra de Siria ha puesto sobre la agenda mediática europea el tema de la crisis de refugiados. Pero esta solo es la punta del iceberg, el mundo cuenta con muchos más refugiados políticos, a los que habría que añadir los llamados refugiados climáticos, a los que la legislación internacional aún no ampara. Se publican muchas noticias y documentales sobre el tema, pero las cifras y fuentes fiables sobre refugiados siguen siendo confusas.
