Gastkommentar zu Big Data: Die Erkenntnis von nichts - NZZ.ch Manfred Schneider 2013-12-30 - 1 views

  •  
    "... Big Data sind vor allem Massen von Informationen, die wie ein digitales Biotop Heerscharen von Propheten hervorbringen, deren Augen bereits in das Morgenrot einer neuen Menschheitsepoche vordringen. Was allerdings auffällt, wenn man sich ein wenig durch den wachsenden Bücher- und Artikelberg zum Thema arbeitet, ist, dass sich die Beispiele für neuartige und spektakuläre Big-Data-Analysen wiederholen. Ganz vorneweg läuft ein Artikel in der Zeitschrift «Nature» aus dem Jahr 2009, der über die Zusammenarbeit von staatlichen Epidemiologen und Google-Mitarbeitern berichtete, die zwischen 2003 und 2008 ein Verfahren zur möglichen Prävention von Grippe-Epidemien entwickelt haben. Sie korrelierten einschlägige Suchmaschinen-Nachfragen nach Grippe-Symptomen, Medikamenten, Antibiotika in bestimmten Regionen mit der Frequenz von Arztbesuchen und stellten damit ein prognostisches Modell für den Verlauf einer Epidemie auf. Zuvor wurden aus mehreren hundert Milliarden Google-Anfragen rund 50 Millionen ausgefiltert, deren Stichworte dem Grippe-Thema zugewiesen werden konnten. Jetzt erlauben es avancierte Rechenverfahren, die Entwicklung einer Seuche beinahe in Echtzeit zu verfolgen und dabei Vorbeugemassnahmen zu treffen. Das Beispiel ist schlagend, vor allem darum, weil es sich unmittelbar ins Reich des Menschheitsheils fügt. Wer will künftig seine Google-Anfragen noch unter Datenschutz stellen, wenn es doch - das oberste Pathosregister ist hier am Platze - um das Leben von Tausenden geht? Die übrigen Beispiele, die die Big-Data-Literatur zur Verfügung stellt, fallen eher in das Feld des smarten Kommerzes. Dass Jeff Bezos, der Gründer von Amazon, seine Bücher nicht von Kritikern anpreisen lässt, sondern den Kunden immer wieder Bücher empfiehlt, die sie eigentlich bereits gelesen haben, ist eine solche smarte Big-Data-Idee. Wer ein Buch über Hühner bestellt, bekommt kurz darauf eines über Hähne empfohlen. Im Prinzip geht es darum, Real-Time-Informa

'A MOOC? What's a MOOC?' Now You Can Look It Up - The Chronicle of Higher Education - S... - 1 views

  •  
    ""A mook? What's a mook?" asks "Johnny Boy" Civello, the fast-talking gambling debtor in Martin Scorsese's 1973 film Mean Streets. For years, "mook" existed in English as an obscure slang term referring to "a foolish, insignificant, or contemptible person" (as Merriam-Webster's Online defines it). According to one Scorsese biographer, Vincent LoBrutto, the term first appeared in 1930 in the work of S.J. Perelman, the well-known writer and humorist. Since then it has occasionally resurfaced-in Mean Streets, for example; and again, around 2000, to classify an emerging class of poor, angry white kids who listen to rap metal. But that particular monosyllable was rarely at the tip of anyone's tongue. Until recently, that is, when college professors began broadcasting their courses to a worldwide audience. They called their courses "MOOCs," which stands for massive open online courses and is pronounced "mooks." Suddenly, that unfortunate syllable could be heard everywhere: in the news and the blogs, at tech conferences and faculty meetings, in legislative hearings and policy proposals. Now, it has been formally enshrined into the English language. Oxford University Press this week inducted "MOOC" into its Oxford Dictionaries Online. The definition: "A course of study made available over the Internet without charge to a very large number of people.""

ELAN description | The Language Archive - 2 views

  •  
    "ELAN is a professional tool for the creation of complex annotations on video and audio resources. With ELAN a user can add an unlimited number of annotations to audio and/or video streams. An annotation can be a sentence, word or gloss, a comment, translation or a description of any feature observed in the media. Annotations can be created on multiple layers, called tiers. Tiers can be hierarchically interconnected. An annotation can either be time-aligned to the media or it can refer to other existing annotations. The textual content of annotations is always in Unicode and the transcription is stored in an XML format. ELAN provides several different views on the annotations, each view is connected and synchronized to the media playhead. Up to 4 video files can be associated with an annotation document. Each video can be integrated in the main document window or displayed in its own resizable window. ELAN delegates media playback to an existing media framework, like Windows Media Player, QuickTime or JMF (Java Media Framework). As a result a wide variety of audio and video formats is supported and high performance media playback can be achieved. ELAN is written in the Java programming language and the sources are available for non-commercial use. It runs on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Main other features navigate through the media with different step sizes easy navigation through existing annotations waveform visualization of .wav files support for template documents input methods for a variety of script systems multi-tier regular expression search, within a single document or in a selection of annotation documents support for user definable Controlled Vocabularies import and export of Shoebox/Toolbox, CHAT, Transcriber (import only), Praat and csv/tab-delimited text files export to interlinear text, html, smil and subtitles text printing of the annotations multiple undo/redo Download ELAN"

    "EFS 693B - STANFORD UNIVERSITY Advanced Listening and Vocabulary Development (...) TED Talks Introduction Below are groups of TED Talks, curated from http://www.ted.com and organized roughly by level and topic. You should do a full group (divided across several sessions if desired) and see if the integration makes them easier to understand (especially the later ones). Be sure to interact with them--don't just watch all of them straight through. However, you can do all or parts of some more intensively than others. Use your best judgment, and return to previous class notes as needed. Note that you are provided with the following information about the talk: 1. length 2. the overall speed in words-per-minute (WPM) 3. the vocabulary profile by percent of words at set frequency levels of the British National Corpus (3K, 5K, 10K, and more than 20K (off-list=OL)) 4. Accent (US, British, etc.) 5. Comments 6. Brief description of the content (from the TED website) (...) Last modified November 12, 2013, by Phil Hubbard"

    Grazie, Fabrizio, Ho taggato con "EFS_Stanford" - tra altri tag - questo webquest e i video ivi elencati dopo un webinar con Phil Hubbard organizzato via hangout da Vance Stevens domenica scorsa (8 ottobre). Nel webinar Hubbard ha insistito sul fatto che la forma di webquest direttivo era meglio delle forme di collaborazione sociali come tagging e condivisione, perché gli consentiva, da esperto, di dare informazioni coerenti. Allora taggare queste sue risorse TED su Diigo è anche un modo di esprimere il mio dissenso ;-) In effetti a proposito di http://www.ted.com/talks/gel_gotta_share.html , elencato in questo webquest, dice di non poter indicare le parole per minuto "perché non c'è trascrizione". Invece c'è, se si va alla pagina YT originale del video embeddato. Ora se invece di un webquest statico avesse condiviso questa risorsa con i suoi studenti in un gruppo come questo, c'è da scommettere che almeno uno di loro avrebbe rimediato all'errore in un commento - come d'altronde ho fatto in https://groups.diigo.com/group/ltis13/content/tag/EFS_Stanford%20GelConference ...
