Statistical Aspects of Data Mining (Stats 202) Day 2

Google Tech Talks
June 29, 2007

ABSTRACT

This is the Google campus version of Stats 202 which is being taught at Stanford this summer. I will follow the material from the Stanford class very closely. That material can be found at www.stats202.com. The main topics are exploring and visualizing data, association analysis, classification, and clustering. The textbook is Introduction to Data Mining by Tan, Steinbach and Kumar. Googlers are welcome to attend any classes which they think might be of interest to them. Credits: Speaker:David Mease

Lev Manovich. Data Visualization. 2009. 1/3

http://www.egs.edu/ Lev Manovich speaking at the European Graduate School in Saas-Fee, Switzerland on data visualization, information design, visual analeptics, software studies, the internet, creativity, and media theory. Public open lecture for the students and faculty of the European Graduate School EGS Media and Communication Studies department program Saas-Fee Switzerland. Lev Manovich 2009
Lev Manovich is one of the most significant voices in internet criticism today. Working as an artist and net theorist as well as a professor in the Visual Arts Department at the University of California at San Diego, he also directs the Software Studies Initiative at the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology. As well, he is a visiting research professor at both Goldsmiths College, London, and De Montfort College as well as the College of Fine Arts at the University of New South Wales in Sydney.
Manovichs most well known book, The Language of New Media, has influenced scores of students, artists and activists since it was published in 2001. In The Language of New Media, Manovich offer a detailed and rigorous theory of new media. Placing new media within the histories of visual and media culture, Manovich examines its reliance on the conventional apparatuses of old media. Manovich uses film theory, art history, literary theory and computer science to develop new theoretical constructs such as cultural interface and spatial montage. Lev Manovichs latest book, Software Takes Command, was released in 2008 under a Creative Commons license and will be available from MIT Press in 2010. Software Takes Command deals with the rise of software as the dominant force in society and culture. Manovich proposes a new system of study—the system of software studies—to investigate both the role software has in forming society, and the cultural, social and economic forces that shape software itself.
Lev Manovichs creative projects include Soft Cinema (2002-03) which is a dynamic computer-driven media installation. The viewer is presented with an infinite number of narrative films constructed at random using custom software. The computer selects clips of both audio and visual works from a database to create and original and unique random narrative. At UCSD, Manovich founded the Software Studies Initiative which seeks to create effective tools for the study of software society. Viewing software as a layer which permeates contemporary society, the Software Studies Initiative seeks to understand contemporary techniques of control, communication, decision making, memory, vision and writing.
Lev Manovichs books include The Engineering of Vision (1993), The Language of New Media (2001), and Software Takes Command (2008) which available for download through a Creative Commons license. Lev Manovich currently blogs at databeautiful.

Google I/O 2008 – Visualize your Data: Visualization API

Visualize your Data: Google Visualization API
The new Google Visualization API lets you access multiple sources of structured data that you can display, choosing from a large selection of visualizations. It also provides a platform that can be used to create, share and reuse visualizations written by the developer community at large. Several of the key benefits include:

* Embed visualizations directly into your website
* Write, share and reuse visualization apps
* Create extensions to Google products, such as Google Docs.
* Use many data sources, one API
* The Visualization API is AJAX-based and includes Gadget extensions so you can easily wrap your applications as Gadgets

This session is a practical introduction to building visual applications using the Google Visualization API. We’ll walk through building an application and a Gadget that uses the API, using that application as the basis for discussing the various facets of the API.
