Curation We largely invest in consumer web services with a large number of engaged users where the users create the content. Services like this can become messy and hard to navigate. There is always a signal to noise issue. I'm a big fan of curation in these services. Recently Kickstarter launched their own version of curation called Curated Pages. Here are some of my favorite Curated Pages: The Magnum Foundation Emergency Fund – The Magnum Foundation Emergency Fund provides grants to photographers who are documenting social and political issues around the world. NYU's ITP Program – NYC's "media lab" and one of the most impactful and important pieces of NYC's tech community. Creative Commons – The Creative Commons organization evangelizes for technology and legal frameworks that facilitate sharing and creativity. The Sundance Institute – A curated page promoting Kickstarter projects from Sundance supported artists.

Curation Can Create A Snapshot Of Our Digital Lives Posted by Tom Foremski - March 17, 2011 As our lives become increasingly digital curation tools can provide a good way to document our activities, capturing a snapshot of key events and moments. For example, the South by South West Interactive conference that is winding down in Austin, Texas attracted a lot of people, sharing lots of ideas, conversations, product launches, and more. Take at look at MobyNow's real-time aggregation of all the social media at SXSW and you'll see what I mean, the masses of tweets, photos, etc. But aggregation isn't that great at documenting a unique experience of an event such as SXSW in digital form. Curation can help to create a specific snapshot. For example: In the future, kids might ask "What did grandpa do at SXSW in 2011?" However, if grandpa had curated his time at SXSW using some of the many digital curation tools available, the answer would be much richer and much more interesting.

10 European Startups To Watch in 2011 When you hear Silicon Valley discuss the European startup scene it’s often negatively. Some say that the investors aren’t brave enough, some say the entrepreneurs aren’t bold enough. Whether there’s any truth in these accusations or not, the fact is that there are startups across Europe that are brimming with original ideas and creativity. Following on from our 10 Exciting European Startups from 2010, here are 10 startups to look out for in 2011.

Data mining Data mining is the process of discovering patterns in large data sets involving methods at the intersection of machine learning, statistics, and database systems.[1] Data mining is an interdisciplinary subfield of computer science with an overall goal to extract information (with intelligent methods) from a data set and transform the information into a comprehensible structure for further use.[1][2][3][4] Data mining is the analysis step of the "knowledge discovery in databases" process, or KDD.[5] Aside from the raw analysis step, it also involves database and data management aspects, data pre-processing, model and inference considerations, interestingness metrics, complexity considerations, post-processing of discovered structures, visualization, and online updating.[1] Etymology[edit] In the 1960s, statisticians and economists used terms like data fishing or data dredging to refer to what they considered the bad practice of analyzing data without an a-priori hypothesis.

9 content curation tools that better organise the web. Content curation is a huge deal on the web today. As content on the web grows exponentially, our ability to make sense of it is inversely proportional. In other words, we are fast sinking under the sheer amount of content pouring onto the web every day. The social web hasn’t made life any easier on content production either – in fact its lowered the barrier to entry. According to Facebook, 30 billion pieces of content (web links, news blogs etc) are shared each month on the social network, with no sign of slowing.

Welcome - INA : L’info fouillée au corpus Marie-Luce Viaud fait des fouilles. Pas avec un pinceau, à genoux dans le sable, mais devant son ordinateur, dans un bureau de l’INA Expert, le département recherche de l’Institut national de l’audiovisuel, à Bry-sur-Marne (Val-de-Marne). La chercheuse s’est spécialisée dans la fouille de données. Soit «l’extraction d’un savoir à partir de grandes quantités de données, par des méthodes automatiques ou semi-automatiques» , selon la définition de Wikipédia à laquelle elle nous renvoie. Depuis octobre 2010, elle coordonne une quinzaine de chercheurs qui collaborent à un discret mais ambitieux projet : l’ Observatoire transmédia (OTMedia), une plateforme pour analyser les flux médiatiques à l’aide de moteurs de recherche (1). L’observatoire doit permettre de «mieux appréhender les enjeux et les mutations de la sphère médiatique» , explique le site du projet . Dans le bureau de la chercheuse, des hiéroglyphes et des flèches encombrent un tableau Velleda.
