|Cultural Analytics (MIT Press)|
|Friday, 30 October 2020|
What analytical methods can we bring to bear on the astonishing scale of digital culture--the billions of photographs shared on social media every day, the hundreds of millions of songs created by twenty million musicians on Soundcloud, the content of four billion Pinterest boards? In this book, Lev Manovich presents concepts and methods for computational analysis of cultural data.
Drawing on a decade of research and projects from his own lab, Manovich offers a gentle, nontechnical introduction to the core ideas of data analytics and discusses the ways that our society uses data and algorithms.
