Luca Naso's curator insight, March 1, 11:01 AM
Building AI models is not such a "dark secret" for few "adepts" as the author seems to suggest (do you really need a PhD to create one?)
However, I totally agree that the visual approach is getting more and more important. Is this because our brain works so well on visual?

Will Cortex be the tool to use to build new models? Too early to tell, but for sure it's a very interesting attempt.
I also appreciate the idea of the App store for AI.

The past and future of Data Visualization

This weekend a friend of mine stumbled across old gold in the form of Willard Cope Brinton’s 1939 book Graphic Presentation. It’s available to read online (from the always awesome Internet Archive)…
Andreas Maniatis's insight:
"There is a magic in graphs. The profile of a curve reveals in a flash a whole situation — the life history of an epidemic, a panic, or an era of prosperity. The curve informs the mind, awakens the imagination, convinces.

Graphs carry the message home. A universal language, graphs convey information directly to the mind. Without complexity there is imaged to the eye a magnitude to be remembered. Words have wings, but graphs interpret. Graphs are pure quantity, stripped of verbal sham, reduced to dimension, vivid, unescapable."

- Henry Hubbard
