General reception of AI White Paper and EU Data Strategy: a proper confirmation of European values and European sovereign tech path, though still infused with legacy economic logic. Quite vague, has better and worse moments. Some specific thoughts below. 1/x
#DigitalEU #Data #AI
First, data strategy. Take a look at the aims here. Market, openness, infinite business access to data. And a bit of EU norms & privacy. What about digital welfare state, data to improve quality of life? Confusing AIMS with TOOLS. Market is a TOOL – and an exclusive one! 2/12
The long neoliberal shadow is visible in approach to public data. We payed for it – so business will use it for free… and then levy fees for access. Didn’t we learn with @MazzucatoM how public value leakage ends with corporate behemots (eg Apple build on public R&D)? 3/12

In my excitement on this stride from @SimShagaya and @uLessonApp, I couldn't stop thinking what if Plateau state could become that state I desire to be in.

So I decided to share some of my ideas to @PlStateGovt.

A #thread.
1. Build on the strides of @SimShagaya & @uLessonApp by laying the foundation of the second Science and Technology ecosystem in Nigeria. The first was built by Jim Nwobodo, fmr Gov of the old Anambra state. Learn from it. It was shortlived but eventful. /1
Plateau has university, polytechnics, technical and vocational schools which are fundamental to sustaining the ecosystem and train talents for a modern economy and government. /2

📢 NEW - NSxG maps 📢

Time to introduce something I've been working on lately. It's called non-shot (NS) xG maps and they look like 👇

In this thread I'll try to explain what they are, why they're useful and how they can be used!

#xG #NSxG #football #data #analytics
@EveryTeam_Mark @MarkTaylor0 @Tussendelinies @tactipedia @Tacticsplatform @joe_mulberry @DanKennett @StatmanDave @elpivoteftbl @experimental361 Why do we need NSxG maps? NSxG maps can help speeding-up and improving the proces of video analysis.

Usually analysts watch hours of video footage, in order to understand how a certain team plays: how do they create dangerous attacks? Which players are most dangerous?
@EveryTeam_Mark @MarkTaylor0 @Tussendelinies @tactipedia @Tacticsplatform @joe_mulberry @DanKennett @StatmanDave @elpivoteftbl @experimental361 But what if we let the data tell us where to look?

▶️ Enter NSxG (or similar metrics like xT or PV)

By plotting in which area of the pitch a team makes their most valuable actions (mind you, we are not talking frequencies here!), we know where they get most dangerous from

Are you a data scientist?


You most likely estimated or felt that coding in #Python
is harder than it really is


see #thread 👇🏼
Let me guess.

You may be a novice programmer,
or have no coding experience at all.

That's all right,
but it turns out you need to do #data #analysis.
Maybe you’ve been already using Excel for that.

You have a chaotic group of folders,
where you keep stacking all statistics that you've managed to complete so far.

But you can't, for the life of you, find a sheet tab
where you already plotted that pie chart you need again.

To create a new Google Sheet in that folder
Quickly freeze panes in your #GoogleSheet by hovering over the border of the sheet (just under the column letters) until you see the hand icon.

Drag down as many rows as you want to freeze.

12 things we will do @SoftcomNG in 2020
Irrespective of socio-economic status, demography and lifestyle, there are needs that are common to every human and it’s at the heart of development and growth for people and businesses.1/
These common needs are: A need to be identified and be identifiable. A need to know. A need to communicate and transact with each other. A need to make meaning out of happenings in our lives whether through juju, religion, common sense or insights from analysed data. 2/
A need to be physically well and a need to belong to something of meaning (family, religion, tribe, love, work or a cause). All these needs fuel our being, our desire for growth and our expectations from life. 3/

What would #content look like in 2050 and what should you be doing today to stay relevant in 2050.

Here is what I learnt at the #contentmarketingsummit yesterday

Thread 🧵 👇🏼 (1/n)
Content is like fashion. Recycle ♻️ the old forms of content with a twist - example: videos to holograms; AR/VR - any form of interactive content that can help people feel less lonely will help brands position themselves as leaders.
Real stories. Real emotions will always work. Better than any influencer. Why do you think The Popxo girls are so famous today? Because they portray real people and are relatable AF. ♥️

Remain United - Methodology

@thatginamiller⁩ ‘s The tactical voting site is now up and running.
Sometimes there are competing possibilities. This is how they sorted decisions on that basis.

B4B used a markedly larger cohort (associated with improved confidence intervals).

Let’s keep our eye on the results of new polling.
It has the advantage of being pretty up to date polling 1st week in Nov).

It uses MRP analysis, the Rolls Royce of constituency polling

But the polling sample, though quite large , is about 1/7th the size of @BestForBritain

Today's Applied Complexity Symposium begins with a panel on Computation and Complex Economies, feat. Rob Axtell, Joshua Epstein, @C4COMPUTATION, Blake LeBaron, John Miller, & @MelMitchell1

(Follow this thread for live coverage all day...)

#complexsystems #economics
4 Principles of Collective #Computation:

1 Ground truth (objective reality)
2 Effective ground truth (what we agree on, whether or not it is accurate)
3 #Information can be collectively encoded in #networks
4 Outputs are a product of collective dynamics

@C4COMPUTATION right now
"I think #economics really needs to adopt a generative framework with agent-based models of cognitively plausible software people...[and] we don't choose to fear."

Mikä Findata on? Tässä 10/10-ketjussa meidän vuonna 2020 alkavan toiminnan taustat ja mitä-miksi-milloin.

Pähkinänkuoressa kiireisille: Teemme sosiaali- ja terveystietojen toissijaisesta käytöstä turvallisempaa ja tehokkaampaa. 1/

Suomessa on ainutlaatuiset sosiaali- ja terveysalan rekisteriaineistot, joita on hyödynnetty esim. tutkimuksessa ja tilastoinnissa menestyksekkäästi jo vuosikymmenien ajan.

Tätä kutsutaan tietojen _toissijaiseksi_ käytöksi. 2/
Tiedot on alun perin tallennettu _ensisijaista_ käyttöä varten, jota on esim. potilaan tutkiminen ja hoitaminen tai Kelan etuuskäsittely. Aineisto on hyvin arkaluontoista: sen keräämistä, säilytystä ja käyttöä ohjaavat tiukat määräykset #tietoturva’sta ja käsittelystä. 3/

A thread about #disasters & #collaborativejournalism:

@rachelpleven wanted to understand how disasters worsening in a warming climate are affecting vulnerable people, including economically strapped folks. She worked w/ @publicintegrity's data team to crunch numbers.
2. We thought this would be a great project to work on w/ other news orgs. @rachelpleven looked for noteworthy state & local trends and reached out to several newsrooms to see if they wanted to write their own stories. @ajc, @highcountrynews, @OVReSRC & @StateImpactOK said yes.
3. Over the past 9 days, the 4 newsrooms have rolled out #OneDisasterAway stories. They're all absorbing, important reads (& listens -- five written stories, two radio pieces).

In order of publication:
