Join the ASU Library’s Researcher Support team for an informal conversation about the Year of Open Science! 2023 has been designated by the White House and federal funding agencies as the year to promote policies, practices and resources to catalyze a shift to open. We’ll talk about the U.S. Office of Science and Technology's definition of open science and their current activities, followed by an open conversation about resources and tools that are available or needed to help shift the research culture at ASU.
This virtual workshop aims to unveil the diverse applications of machine learning techniques in domains such as social sciences, digital humanities and beyond. We will start with a quick overview of p-value statistical significance test approach and then move to demonstrate huge potential of machine learning algorithms to provide us with important predictions and advance social science and digital humanities research as an alternative to the p-value approach.
In the follow-up Visualization 2 virtual workshop, we will venture into ggplot's advanced features, equipping participants with visualization techniques to resolve complex challenges. We will first explore how to create informative animated visualizations. Attendees will then have the opportunity to uncover the power of coordinates and maps, illuminating how data can be spatially represented for deeper insights. We will explore various maps and geospatial data using the Leaflet package.
Visualization 1 serves as an insightful introduction to the power of ggplot. The virtual workshop will guide participants through the art of crafting compelling visualizations that convey complex insights and stories. We will start by explaining why we should care about visualizations. By understanding the "why" behind visualization, we can gain an appreciation for its pivotal role in modern data analysis. The workshop will then dive into the core concepts of visual relationships between variables, unraveling the diverse forms of visual illustrations.

Jules Massenet was the leading French opera composer from the latter part of the 19th century into the first decade of the 20th century. His 24 operas represent a diverse palette of thematic material including works based on historical, mythological, religious, fictional and magical settings. Massenet's affinity for art forms beyond music such as dance, prose and visual arts is readily apparent in many of these masterful scores.
“De-Construction: by Popular Demand” is an exhibit on display Aug. 28 until Dec. 8 at the Vault Gallery inside the Downtown Phoenix campus Library. This exhibit highlights Mexican and Chican@ visual representations of de-constructivism and culturalism linked by popular parodies found both in Mexico and in the U.S.
