You have a mound of data sitting in front of you and a suite of computation tools at your disposal. And yet, you’re stumped as to how to turn that data into insight. Which part of that data actually matters, and where is this insight hidden?
If you’re a data scientist who struggles to navigate the murky space between data and insight, this book will help you think about and reshape data for visual data exploration. It’s ideal for relatively new data scientists, who may be computerknowledgeable and dataknowledgeable, but do not yet know how to create effective, explorable representations of data.
With this book, you’ll learn:

Task analysis, driven by a series of leading questions that draw out the important aspects of the data to be explored

Visualization patterns, each of which take a different perspective on data and answer different questions

A taxonomy of visualizations for common data types

Techniques for gathering design requirements

When and where to make use of statistical methods



Software Testing and Analysis: Process, Principles and TechniquesThe first comprehensive book on software test and analysis
You can't “test quality into” a software product, but neither can you build a quality software product without test and analysis. Software test and analysis is increasingly recognized, in research and in industrial practice, as a core challenge in...   Binding Theory (Cambridge Textbooks in Linguistics)This study explores how different kinds of nominal expressions such as names, noun phrases and pronouns develop anaphoric relations among each another that have reference to physical elements. Providing a thorough and comprehensive introduction to modern binding theory, this book introduces a variety of nominal and, especially, pronominal...   New Computational Paradigms: Changing Conceptions of What is ComputableIn recent years, classical computability has expanded beyond its original scope to address issues related to computability and complexity in algebra, analysis, and physics. The deep interconnection between "computation" and "proof" has originated much of the most significant work in constructive mathematics and mathematical...
