StreetScore

StreetScore | Bits 'n Pieces on Big Data | Scoop.it

"This is a collection of map visualizations of perceived safety of street views from cities in the United States. We will be releasing a map of perceived safety for a new city each week. These maps are based on StreetScore — a machine learning algorithm designed to predict how safe a street view looks to a human observer (see FAQ). The StreetScore algorithm was created by Nikhil Naik as part of a collaboration between the Macro Connections group and the Camera Culture group at MIT Media Lab. Jade Philipoom created the visualizations presented in the StreetScore website. "

The Languages of Twitter Users

The Languages of Twitter Users | Bits 'n Pieces on Big Data | Scoop.it

Twitter styles itself as the “global town square” for public conversations — a place for fans to gossip about an actress falling at the Academy Awards and for critics of Tunisia’s government topublicly decry the death of an opposition leader.

To measure Twitter’s global impact, Gnip, a social data firm, studied the firehose of posts over the years. The above chart tracks tweets from users who selected a primary language in their profiles since the service went live in 2006. Last year, among people who told Twitter they had a preferred language, almost 49 percent of tweets were from users who chose Japanese, Spanish, Portuguese and other languages other than English.
