About - The Pudding The Pudding explains ideas debated in culture with visual essays. By wielding original datasets, primary research, and interactivity, we try to thoroughly explore complex topics. Visual essays are an emerging form of journalism. At The Pudding, our goal is to advance public discourse and avoid media echo chambers. Frequently Asked Questions Here at The Pudding, we get asked our fair share of questions. How we do it We're six full-time journalist-engineers who operate as a collective rather than hierarchical team. Much of our work is done autonomously, with individuals choosing their essays and owning the whole story, from research to code. One luxury that separates us from traditional newsrooms is our approach to publishing urgency. So we experiment, a lot. We're also trying to advance the craft. Keeping the lights on The Pudding is financially viable, bootstrapped, and profitable (intentionally). There are no ads. Want a full rundown of the relationship between The Pudding and Polygraph?

The Cathedral of Computation Algorithms are everywhere, supposedly. We are living in an “algorithmic culture,” to use the author and communication scholar Ted Striphas’s name for it. Google’s search algorithms determine how we access information. Facebook’s News Feed algorithms determine how we socialize. Netflix’s and Amazon’s collaborative filtering algorithms choose products and media for us. You hear it everywhere. Here’s an exercise: The next time you hear someone talking about algorithms, replace the term with “God” and ask yourself if the meaning changes. It’s part of a larger trend. The worship of the algorithm is hardly the only example of the theological reversal of the Enlightenment—for another sign, just look at the surfeit of nonfiction books promising insights into “The Science of…” anything, from laughter to marijuana. In fact, our purported efforts to enlighten ourselves about algorithms’ role in our culture sometimes offer an unexpected view into our zealous devotion to them. Take the machine.

Sept conseils pour ne pas se faire avoir par les représentations graphiques Peut-on avoir confiance dans un « camembert » ? Un axe vertical doit-il forcément commencer à zéro ? A quel point une carte peut-elle être trompeuse ? LE MONDE | • Mis à jour le | Par Mathilde Damgé La grève des employés de la SNCF est aussi une bataille de communication, dans laquelle chaque élément compte. 1. Ces bâtons, qu’on appelle aussi histogrammes, sont censés représenter des rapports de grandeur. Il aurait fallu privilégier une représentation s’appuyant sur un axe des ordonnées à zéro, comme ici : Ce n’est par ailleurs pas la première fois que le service de communication de la SNCF joue avec la notion d’échelle pour minimiser le taux de participation des grévistes : un communiqué de presse diffusé le 4 avril utilisait les mêmes méthodes aux mêmes fins. Lire aussi cet autre exemple : Air France : pourquoi il faut se méfier des graphiques 2. Sauf que l’axe des ordonnées ne commence pas à zéro, ce qui donne à la « pente » une courbe beaucoup plus forte qu’elle ne l’est en réalité.

Event Processing Why store data to find out what happened or what could have been when you can act on events as they occur? TIBCO's event-driven solutions allow you to capture, aggregate, and analyze real-time and historical data of any variety, volume, and velocity to gain contextual awareness and act preemptively. Anticipate Monitor and leverage fast-moving, real-time event streams from devices, logs, and applications to gain contextual awareness and seize opportunities or reduce risks the moment you sense them. Make better decisions faster Combine awareness with data you can trust to make informed decisions. Improve outcomes You can apply rules to trigger action while the opportunity still exists; for instance, prevent fraud by spotting and correlating irregularities or increase the size of an order by making offers based on what is in the shopper's cart. With TIBCO event-driven solutions, you can prevent, rather than react to risk and create opportunities rather than chase them.

Série graphique Ce kit pédagogique propose aux professeurs de collège de sensibiliser leurs élèves aux créations de design graphique. Il permet de découvrir l’influence du design graphique sur l’environnement visuel et propose une sensibilisation à la typographie, à la mise en page ou aux relations sémantiques entre mots et images.Souvent confrontés à des choix graphiques lors de la mise en page de leurs travaux scolaires, du choix d'un caractère typographique, d'une image ou d'une couleur, les élèves approchent et utilisent les notions clés du design graphique souvent sans en avoir conscience. Le kit contient des éléments inducteurs de manipulations et des éléments de connaissances, notamment sur l’évolution du design graphique ou sur les problématiques soulevées par l’accumulation des signes. Les élèves peuvent, grâce à diverses fiches, outils et autres dispositifs, découvrir et s’essayer à la création d’une typographie, d’un visuel et d’éléments faisant appel au design graphique.

Big Data Conference - Strata + Hadoop World, February 17 - 20, 2015, San Jose, CA What previous attendees have said I learned more about big data in just three days attending Strata than in one year doing research on my own. One of the most valuable events to advance my career. This is probably the pinnacle of Big Data conferences to attend for networking and getting the latest updates on ground breaking new technologies in the Big Data space. See the Agenda Strata + Hadoop World brings together the best minds in strategy, science, and industry for the defining event of the data industry. The depth and breadth of what's covered requires 10 different tracks just to organize it all. Other events at Strata + Hadoop World include: The future belongs to those who know how to use data. Don't miss it.

Carte des déploiements fibre (FttH) Cette carte est publiée par l’Arcep dans le but d’améliorer l’information du grand public et des professionnels sur les déploiements des réseaux de fibre optique jusqu’à l’abonné. Établie tant à la maille de la commune qu’à la maille technique (généralement infracommunale), elle fait partie de l’observatoire du haut et du très haut débit fixe mis en place par l’Autorité et s’accompagne de la publication des données sous-jacentes en open data. Les locaux raccordables au réseau FttH correspondent aux logements ou locaux à usage professionnel raccordables à un réseau de communications à très haut débit en fibre optique par l’intermédiaire d’un point de mutualisation. Les opérateurs transmettent à l’Arcep des données détaillées sur leur déploiement de réseaux en fibre optique. Le taux de couverture FttH d’une commune évalue la proportion des logements ou locaux à usage professionnel raccordables à un ou plusieurs réseaux FttH. Le mode avancé propose quatre vues supplémentaires : Programmé :

Data analysis and commentary: O'Reilly Radar An alternate perspective on data-driven decision making The O'Reilly Radar Podcast: Tricia Wang on "thick data," purpose-driven problem solving, and building the ideal team. In this week’s Radar Podcast episode, O’Reilly’s Roger Magoulas chatted with Tricia Wang, a global tech ethnographer and co-founder of PL Data, about how qualitative and quantitative data need to work together, reframing “data-driven decision making,” and building the ideal team. Purpose-driven problem solving Wang stressed that quantitative and qualitative need to work together. “It’s been kind of a detriment to our field that there’s this phrase ‘data-driven decision making.’ Signals from Strata + Hadoop World in San Jose, CA, 2015 From data-driven government to our age of intelligence, here are key insights from Strata + Hadoop World in San Jose, CA, 2015. Experts from across the big data world came together for Strata + Hadoop World in San Jose, CA, 2015. U.S. chief data scientist Read more…

Math with Bad Drawings – Page 3 – Lover of math. Bad at drawing. Treating an inequality like an equation? That's like treating a bird as a wingless schmo. A strange, true tale from 1915. A cute little math problem (that grows into a monster). We see fractals in clouds, coastlines, tree branches, and... literature? Paper wasn't supposed to be cool. I demand a MEAN function. Three geometric treats from your favorite puzzler.
