People might have already been aware about Google Trends, so I am going to shed some more light on other facets of how we can get Search Engine Data. Microsoft has been doing good work in this field allowing one to predict a website's user age, gender, demographic information, classification of website in a certain category depending on the contents of a website, tons of analysis related to search keywords like Google trends and it allows keyword clustering, keyword forecast and keywords expansion. It detects the commercial intent of visitors for any ...
Machine learning use in iPhone:
Professor Tony Jebara's talk on "Learning networks of people and places from mobile phone location data".
idea connecting virtual people - MySpace, etc.
To build a network of real places and a network of real people but it's hard to get. To do this we can exploit GPS as we are collecting offline data (from taxis [starttime, startend, latitude, longitude], IPhone, GPS, carriers (AT&T, Verizon,etc.)) This is called Sense Networks (Analysis, Citysense, Networks of places & people)

At EdLab's Development & Research meeting this past Tuesday, I presented how I gathered interesting user statistics for most popular and least popular articles on the Teachers College Record website and how we can extend this to other websites such as PocketKnowledge and Gottesman Library.

I hope you have all gone through the blog postings of the course at Columbia University on the iPhone and Android application development. I stumbled on a link which has the video lectures of the class for those who are interested. Enjoy!!!
I feel people might be interested in attending the session on The Art of Ballistic Programming conducted by Larry Wall, creator of Perl and author of "Programming Perl." The session will be held on

28-year-old Pranav Mistry has developed a digital prototype called the “sixth sense“, a wearable hi-tech device that can turn anything into a touchscreen. The wrist can become a watch and palm as a phone.
The device is a combination of a wearable camera, a projector and a mirror where the camera recognizes the movements of the fingers of your hand and translates those into commands.
For instance, when you pick up a product at a grocery store, the device can wirelessly search for comparative prices, degrees of recyclability, etc. You pick up a book at a store and the device can search a...

Experience & Design in the Mobile World
Nathan Freitas, Oliver+Coady
With a mobile device the developer must take care of the world around the user. (Like Compass in a GPS)
Waiting for the time to load for an application is not the right way for developing applications.
Possible User Input Sources for a Mobile Device:
Click Tap via Touch
Wheel or Trackball
GPS or Network Location
Accelerometer Motion - used to find out whether the iPhone is down or facing up or lying sideways so that different behavior c...
I was going through the website of a Machine Learning book author who is also a scientist in Microsoft Research, Christopher Bishop. There, I came across this website and found it relatively simple to use with many technical things explained through the use of flash games. I found that concept quite intuitive and thus wanted to share it with everyone.
I hope we can also build something like this in EdLab. Hope this helps.
If you have typed in Google recently and saw the attached image, you might have thought there is no google written in it as it usually does.
So I got a little curious myself and thought of finding out why it has been put on google's webpage. I stumbled upon the website, http://www.jacksonpollock.org, the creator of that image and found it amusing so I thought about sharing it with the EdLab and beyond.
