Can Gerrymandering Be Ended via Machine Learning?

Gerrymandering has long been a problem in the process of choosing elected officials globally, but it is especially a problem in the United States, where political redistricting occurs every two years in response to changes in population distribution and density. The term itself arose in 1820 in Massachusetts as the…

Network Graph Visualizations with DOT

Network graphs play a large part in both computing and data science, and they are essential for working with (and visualizing) both semantic graphs and property graphs. Nearly thirty years ago, AT&T produced a set of libraries called graphviz which were designed to generate various types of printed output. Over the years, the library has been adapted for different platforms and roles, and today is still one of the most widely used network graph visualization tools around.

One of…

How Taxonomies Differ From Ontologies

Over the years, I've had people ask me how a taxonomy differs from an ontology. The answer (or at least a reasonably simple answer) is that "a taxonomy is a tree shaped ontology".

It is worth digging  bit deeper to understand what that means, however:

Way back in the early 18th century, a Swedish biologist by the name of Carl Linnaeus…

Weekly Digest, Tuesday, 3 November 2020

From The Editor's Desk

This version of the DSC Weekly Digest is running a bit late, in part because the editor (me), as a data junkie, has been a bit preoccupied watching the always engaging and occasionally horrifying sport known as the US Election.
