Data Visualization: Communication & Creativity

Data Visualization: Communication & Creativity | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

Visual communication skills are alien to some in the research industry, but they needn’t be. Data visualisation can become part of the research process through smart hiring, skills training and expert partnerships.

 

Data visualisation should not be regarded as an end in itself; the real point to data visualisation - the value that it brings to research buyers and suppliers - is as an aid to storytelling. It’s about seeing the patterns in the data that flush out a story and then help you to start telling that story. Only by doing that can you move data off the spreadsheet and out into the real world of consumer behaviour and preferences.

The best analogy and the one used frequently, is with journalism. It’s no surprise either that many great examples of data visualisation come from the publishing and media sectors. Journalists face the same challenge that we do of sifting large amounts of often conflicting data to arrive at a truth or an insight...

Kurzweil : "How to lab-test your brain with an iPhone, an iPad… | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

A new study shows that an iOS (iPhone, iPad) app yields results on a dichotic listening test that are as reliable as laboratory tests. Two years ago, psychology researcher Josef Bless was listening to music on his phone when he had an idea : “In dichotic listening, each ear is presented with a different syllable at the same time (one to the left and one to the right ear) and the listener has to say which syllable seems clearest.

 

The test indicates which side of the brain is most active during language processing” Bless explains […]. The app makes it possible to gather large volumes of data easily and inexpensively. I think we will see more and morepsychological tests coming to smartphones” he adds…

Hoon Chung and his 3D printed footwear

Hoon Chung and his 3D printed footwear | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

"For the ‘Prémonitions Sucrées‘ film I pulled from a handful of Fashion Technology graduates at London College of Fashion. One of the most iconic designers was Hoon Chung, with his 3D printed footwear supported by EOS. Selectively chosen, EOS sponsors one or two designers in the MA course to produce a collection with new materials and haptic machinery they have in development."
