Dear data friends,

Successful communication requires a common language. Unfortunately, the larger the group of people involved, the more it is questionable to what degree such a thing even exists. We are currently running an open survey that aims to answer this question specifically for the way humans perform quantification (i.e., how we label things as "high", "normal", and "low"):

http://139.59.142.94/index.html

We would appreciate a lot if you could participate as well as share this invitation. The survey is totally anonymous, requires only to fill in 6 fields, and is designed to not take more than 5 minutes.

All results will be published in openly accessible form. Don't hesitate to get in touch with us in case you are interested in a publication notification.

Thanks a lot,
Ankit Karyraa and +Mario Boley

Hi Steve.

Thanks a lot for your time and comment. Of course these cognitive issues are very important. Now, whether there is an innate context-independent human capacity for categorizing quantities or not: we would like to see to what degree the aggregated human categorization can be replicated by one of a number of pure statistical principles.

Perhaps knowing that background clarifies things a bit. In addition, I would like to point out is that you do not see the whole study design through filling out one questionnaire. There is randomization in the design in order to control for cognitive factors like anchoring. If you are interested in the paper once it is published, I will be happy to send you a copy if you provide an email address.

1001 Ebook

This book is a collection of chapters written by experts on various aspects of big data. The book aims to explain what big data is and how it is stored and used. The book starts from the fundamentals and builds up from there. It is intended to serve as a review of the state-of-the-practice in the field of big data handling. The traditional framework of relational databases can no longer provide appropriate solutions for handling big data and making it available and useful to users scattered around the globe. The study of big data covers a wide range of issues including management of heterogeneous data, big data frameworks, change management, finding patterns in data usage and evolution, data as a service, service-generated data, service management, privacy and security. All of these aspects are touched upon in this book. It also discusses big data applications in different domains. The book will prove useful to students, researchers, and practicing database and networking engineers.
