Here at Tartan Datascapes, we love all research but we definitely have a soft spot for humanities research and exploring the many ways that data intersects with topics in the humanities!
Have you ever watched a movie and thought of it as data? Hopefully, if you are a long-term reader of this blog, you have learned that almost anything can be data, depending on how you conceptualize it and interact with it. For those who have been following Tartan Datascapes this summer, you’ve likely noticed that I’ve delved deeply into how data presents itself in popular culture, and as a result, how popular culture can allow us to learn more about data.

“I propose to consider the question, Can machines think?” This sentence opens Alan Turing’s paper, ‘"Computing Machinery and Intelligence," a landmark text in the history of computing that approaches the status of a manifesto for artificial intelligence.
As researchers from across multiple disciplines grapple with the challenges of COVID-19, the open science movement and its themes of sharing well-curated, reusable data and conducting research collaboratively and transparently appear more relevant than ever. Advocates argue that open science can accelerate discovery, enable rapid and robust peer-review, and enhance the public impact of research.
Who else here gets inordinately excited over notebooks? Any time I walk into a bookstore or stationary store, I immediately head to the notebooks. While I’m not sure I’ve ever actually filled up an entire notebook, a quick walk around my house will reveal dozens of notebooks with drawings, poems, meeting notes, photographs glued to the pages, recipe clippings, and a variety of other things. Paper notebooks are wonderful! But, the focus of today’s Tartan Datascapes post is on a situation where paper notebooks may not be the best thing for you: in your research environments.
As instructors prepare for hybrid instruction this fall, the University Libraries continue to support remote learning with a new unlimited license for The Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE), a suite of resources that can be used to teach scientific methods and concepts for lab and lecture courses.
