luiy's insight:
Autopoiesis is the word!

 

I have introduced the theory of living systems developed by Maturana and Varela (technically known as autopoiesis) in previous articles.

In essence these two mould-breaking Chilean biologists argued that a living system should not be defined in terms of its attributes (e.g. growth or reproduction) which ran counter to the common practice of the time.

Maturana and Varela wanted to define living systems in a more philosophically independent way by suggesting that a living system is one "whose only products are itself" - which is actually massively profound if you think about it.

 

 

..... about roles:

 

When we apply the Processes Component at the Group System Level it raises for me the question of roles in social networks and the interaction between them.

In Tom Quick's (University College London) excellent Introduction to Autopoiesis Tom suggests that:

 

'in crude terms a system is autopoietic if the bits and pieces of which it is composed interact with each other in such a way as to continually produce and maintain that set of bits and pieces and the relationships between them'.

 

A personal theory which I am developing, based on this concept (referred tothe closure of the nervous system) proposes that:

1) Each role in a social network should be defined not in terms of its outputs or objectives but instead in terms of the transformations (and instantiations)it makes to the other roles in the system.

2) Collectively the role interactions should create a positive feedback loop in the sense that each role is fully defined in terms of its interactions with other roles.

Finally we can go on to interpret these 4 living system principles at the overall System or Ecosystem level....etc

Oycib ::: Collective Intelligence. "Kaan". Network Visualisation.

Oycib ::: Collective Intelligence. "Kaan". Network Visualisation. | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
luiy's insight:

Beginning with the origins, Oycib means in Mayan language "the place of honey". In this projet, Oycib is an e-Research infrastructure for the Collective Intelligence Analysis.

 

With Oycib infrastructure we propose an analysis model, based in the digital practices and collaboration profiles for the development of Social Learning and the Context Awareness in the Collective Intelligence process.

 

The infrastructure design and the profiles proposed here, are based on historical studies about social organization glyphs in Mayan culture made by Montgomery (2002) and Calvin (2012).

 

Initially we worked with four collaboration profiles: the "Itzaat", the "Pitziil", the "Ayuxul" and the "Sajal" (profiles), but we can find others depending of the organization context. Thus, it's important to mention that each profile is found based on the e-Xploración model and they are the qualitative and quantitative interpretation of the collaborative practices. In this way, we propose methods based on Social Network Analysis for the learning and knowledge management.

 

Thus, the network in Oycib is called "Kaan" (sky or network in Mayan Lenguage). In the "Kaan" we present the visualization of the subjects and objects, such as persons, forums, blogs, files, groups and all the interactions among them. Additionally, each profile and their interactions is presented.

 

... you can interact with "Kaan" here.

Top-Secret NSA Report Details Russian Hacking Effort Days Before 2016 Election

Top-Secret NSA Report Details Russian Hacking Effort Days Before 2016 Election | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
The spear-phishing email contained a link directing the employees to a malicious, faux-Google website that would request their login credentials and then hand them over to the hackers. The NSA identified seven “potential victims” at the company. While malicious emails targeting three of the potential victims were rejected by an email server, at least one of the employee accounts was likely compromised, the agency concluded. The NSA notes in its report that it is “unknown whether the aforementioned spear-phishing deployment successfully compromised all the intended victims, and what potential data from the victim could have been exfiltrated.”

VR Systems declined to respond to a request for comment on the specific hacking operation outlined in the NSA document. Chief Operating Officer Ben Martin replied by email to The Intercept’s request for comment with the following statement:

Phishing and spear-phishing are not uncommon in our industry. We regularly participate in cyber alliances with state officials and members of the law enforcement community in an effort to address these types of threats. We have policies and procedures in effect to protect our customers and our company.

This interactive geoengineering map | @ETC_Group #anthropocene #cartography | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
This interactive geoengineering map, prepared by ETC Group and the Heinrich Boell Foundation, is an attempt to shed light on the worldwide state of geoengineering by showing the scope of research and experimentation. There is no complete record of weather and climate control projects so this map is necessarily partial. It builds on an earlier map of Earth Systems Experimentation published in 2012. That original map documented almost 300 projects and experiments related to the field of geoengineering. Five years later over 800 such projects can be identified. These include projects in Carbon Capture, Solar Radiation Management, Weather Modification and other approaches.

The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz (CC available) - YouTube I #History #Hackers

The film follows the story of programming prodigy and information activist Aaron Swartz. From Swartz's help in the development of the basic internet protocol RSS to his co-founding of Reddit, his fingerprints are all over the internet. But it was Swartz's groundbreaking work in social justice and political organizing combined with his aggressive approach to information access that ensnared him in a two-year legal nightmare. It was a battle that ended with the taking of his own life at the age of 26. Aaron's story touched a nerve with people far beyond the online communities in which he was a celebrity. This film is a personal story about what we lose when we are tone deaf about technology and its relationship to our civil liberties.

Network Science


ALBERT-LÁSZLÓ BARABÁSI


Networks are everywhere, from the Internet, to social networks, and the genetic networks that determine our biological existence. Illustrated throughout in full colour, this pioneering textbook, spanning a wide range of topics from physics to computer science, engineering, economics and the social sciences, introduces network science to an interdisciplinary audience. From the origins of the six degrees of separation to explaining why networks are robust to random failures, the author explores how viruses like Ebola and H1N1 spread, and why it is that our friends have more friends than we do. Using numerous real-world examples, this innovatively designed text includes clear delineation between undergraduate and graduate level material. The mathematical formulas and derivations are included within Advanced Topics sections, enabling use at a range of levels. Extensive online resources, including films and software for network analysis, make this a multifaceted companion for anyone with an interest in network science.

Data trails: “The comparative machine” (1836)

Data trails: “The comparative machine” (1836) | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
This post is part of a blog series on historical data vis titled “Data Trails. Snapshots from the history of data visualisation” and originally appeared over at my friends’ from Idalab, a Berlin-based specialist on data science and machine learning. 

There is a very basic joy in roaming through atlases and in looking at maps. Atlases are rich collections of places, and if there is one thing they can do it is making you travel around the world, to places near and far. Cartography – an age-old discipline combining science and art – has created a unique way of looking at our planet, of flying over continuous landscapes and endless oceans. The 19th century was a golden age of atlases. Beautiful pieces for the educated household were printed in many different countries. Many of them feature one very special type of map: the comparative tableau showing the longest rivers and highest mountains of the world.

Interactive flow visualization in R

Interactive flow visualization in R | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
Exploring flows between origins and destinations visually is a common task, but can be difficult to get right. In R, there are many tutorials on the web that show how to produce static flow maps (see here, here, here, and here, among others).

Over the past couple years, R developers have created an infrastructure to bridge R with JavaScript using the htmlwidgets package, allowing for the generation of interactive web visualizations straight from R. I’d like to demonstrate here a few examples for exploratory interactive flow graphics that use this infrastructure.

The visualization was constructed entirely in HTML5 and JavaScript. Four major libraries were used: 


-  Sigma.js for displaying the networks. The latest version does not contain some key functionality for dynamically and additively loading and unloading of subgraphs into the main graph, so the source code was updated with required methods. Separate article on that topic is upcoming. 


- Three.js for rotating Earth and all geographically-related work. Simile Timeline for the timeline.

#Visualizing the network of Donald #Trump - @Linkurious - Understand the connections in your data I #publicpolicy #SNA | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

On January 15, BuzzFeed released a large dataset of Donald Trump’s connections, including people, organizations and the nature of their relationships.

In their article “Help Us Map TrumpWorld”, the four authors of the investigation, John Templon, Anthony Cormier, Alex Campbell and Jeremy Singer-Vine, asked the public to help them understand and analyse the data.

Now we are asking the public to use our data to find connections we may have missed, and to give us context we don’t currently understand. We hope you will help us — and the public — learn more about TrumpWorld and how this unprecedented array of businesses might affect public policy.”


So we decided to see what it would looks like in Linkurious, our graph analysis and visualization tool.

The dataset is publicly available in a Google spreadsheet. We imported it in a Neo4j graph database using the following script inspired by Michael Hunger’s work:
