Graduate student enrollment section. Introduces students to a range of rapid prototyping techniques and methods to analyze needs, opportunities and design spaces. Students will work in teams to develop ideas for novel computational devices or applications to meet identified needs. Covers the interlinked entrepreneurial skills of identifying an unmet need, exploiting technological opportunities, exploring a design space to refine an idea, and communicating a design vision through demonstrations with prototypes and proofs of concept. This enables developers to show how their envisaged working interactive technology will be used productively in a particular real-life context. Communicating the vision of computational devices is a challenge because dynamic use in context is hard for people other than the device's developers to imagine. The ability to produce convincing, clear, powerful demonstrations even at the early stages of a project is a highly valuable entrepreneurial skill, and al

Data Science in the Humanities 65589 Tu: 10:00 - 12:50 p.m.
341 LISB Underwood
Human culture provides an ideal testbed for students exploring data science, because the interpretive challenges that lurk beneath the surface in other domains become starkly visible here. For instance, cultural materials usually come to analysts as unstructured texts, images, or sound files, forcing explicit decisions about data modeling and feature extraction. Cultural questions also highlight the importance of interpreting statistical models in relation to a social context. Last but not least: songs, poems, and stories confront us with vivid problems that are inherently fun to explore. This course will start by reviewing descriptive and inferential statistics, and build up to applications of supervised and unsupervised machine learning. We will apply those methods to a range of cultural materials ? using them to model the pace of stylistic change in popular music, for instance, and the representation of gender in fiction.

After that idea has gelled into a working concept, it is handed to Design and Installation Specialists to see what is really possible. Can we have all the art suspended from wires? Can the ceiling support a replica of a sea mine? Can we devise a secure vitrine for this priceless manuscript? Does this meet ADA restrictions? How will everything fit together? Can we get that look? This course will address how exhibitions attains a specific "look"? This is not a course on developing or curating the information, but rather a course on presenting that information in the most compelling way.
