Blog Announcement Community ~ gsoc It’s a great news, Gephi has been accepted again for the Google Summer of Code for the 5th year! The program is the best way for students around the world to start contributing to an open-source project. Since 2009, each edition is a great success and dramatically boosted Gephi’s project development. What is Gephi?
Research - Repurposing Research Research areas - Digital culture and emergent media - Participatory networks and sharing economies - Media activism and strategies for citizen engagement - Artivism and Hacktivism - Surveillance, dataveillance and policing in the digital age My current research investigates changing notions of participation and collaboration that are mediated by information architectures, data and metadata. In particular, I am interested in understanding how artists, activists and grassroots groups use social media platforms for collaboration and advocacy, and how software and interfaces condition collaborative practices and transform political habits, and cultural and aesthetic values.
Sail Implementation · tinkerpop/blueprints Wiki OpenRDF is the creator of the Sail interface (Storage and Inference Layer). Any triple or quad-store developer can implement the Sail interfaces in order to allow third-party developer to work with different stores without having to change their code. This is very handy as different RDF-store implementations are optimized for different types of use cases. In analogy, Sail is like the JDBC of the RDF database world. The Storage And Inference Layer (Sail) API is a low level System API (SPI) for RDF stores and inferencers.
The power of small data in education By Trenton Goble On March 8, 2014 As the tech industry’s capacity for gathering and parsing big data has grown rapidly in recent years, its collective imagination is working overtime creating opportunities to put that data to work. Netflix uses deep learning to find out whether I’d prefer to watch “Bering Sea Gold” or “Cake Boss” while I fall asleep. Google looks for cues in my searches on, say, snow conditions to get ski boot ads at the top of my screen. And Amazon, according to its recent patents, is even looking into “anticipatory shipping” to have its army of drones ready to ship products before I’ve even clicked purchase. A lot of effort has gone into finding avenues for big data recently in education, as well.
Large-scale RDF Graph Visualization Tools AI3 Assembles 26 Candidate Tools The pending UMBEL subject concept “backbone” ontology will involve literally thousands of concepts. In order to manage and view such a large structure, a concerted effort to find suitable graph visualization software was mounted. Venn Templates and Venn Diagram Software - Free and no download required with Gliffy Online A Venn diagram is a simple way to represent the relationships between groups of things with a clear, visual display. Let your ideas overlap In a Venn diagram, large circles represent groups of things with a shared attribute. Areas where these circles overlap represent individuals that belong equally to both groups. For example, a Venn diagram with one circle representing things made with yeast and another representing alcoholic beverages would have an overlapping zone where you could find both beer and wine. Circles in a Venn diagram can overlap partially, overlap completely, or even be totally separate — letting the viewer see the relationship between the groups at a glance.
More About the Sandbox - the sandbox project More About the Sandbox Project Activism beyond the Interface: the sandbox project is a community art project by Alessandra Renzi and Roberta Buiani consisting of a series of production labs and collaborative interventions in different cities (Toronto, Berlin, Montreal, Sao Paolo, New York). The project invites activists, artists and techies to reflect upon the coexistence of diverse tactics, strategies and performative actions gathered under the umbrella term “activism”. Neo4J, RDF and Kevin Bacon Today, I managed to wangle my way into Off the Rails, a train hack day. I was helping friends with data mangling: OpenStreetMap, Dbpedia, RDF and Neo4J. It’s funny actually. Way back when, if I said to people that there is some data that fits quite well into graph models, they’d look at me like some kind of dangerous looney.
Apprendre automatiquement à partir des données - Stéphan Clémençon, Télécom ParisTech Big Data is an issue not only of technology, but also for society. Aware of the value of data, Institut Mines-Télécom has made it a major field of research, because a new approach is needed in order to store, share and use data to achieve optimal use. Machine Learning is one such approach. It is being researched by Stéphan Clémençon, Professor at Télécom ParisTech. Welkin What is this? Welkin is a graph-based RDF visualizer. What's New in Version 1.1 Works on Windows, Linux and MacOSX. Added support for Turtle/N3 RDF syntax.
Data Visualization Review: Gephi, Free Graph Exploration Software I do not often get to play with networks, yet I find them fascinating and full of knowledge gathering potential. The data visualization works of Moritz Stefaner, Jer Thorp, and Mark Lombardi captivate me. I am intrigued by relationships, how we perceive them, and how we can understand them.
