The Art of Mixing Art and Math!

The word, Data has generated a lot of buzz of late. There has been numerous research papers about the impact of ‘Big Data Analytics’ and how it has revolutionized the way we live and think.

Such a hype is not a surprise considering the tremendous progress we have made in machine learning. “A full 90% of all data generated in this world has been generated in the last two years”, quotes Science Daily. There is mountains of data that is accumulated over time. The challenge here is the ability to wade through such large amounts of data sets, identify those crucial data points and intelligently infer qualitative information to assist positive decision making. The complication does not stop there. How do you present those inferences to a reader in clear, comprehensible style?

The Oxford dictionary defines the word, art as, “The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power”. Art is omnipotent and has formed a significant part of human lives, all along the evolution process right from the days, mankind learnt to stand up or possibly, from even before that. ‘Art’ has the magical power to touch humans at a deeper level and connect with his inner sense of being.

The genesis of Report Bee is at the intersection of “Art” “Humanities”and “Machine Learning”. Harnessing the strength of these intersection could bring about a phenomenal change in the way we work in today’s world.

The realm of child psychology, sociology, child development and data analytics worked independently in the education sector. The visual and performing arts is just taught as a course in some school. The mathematics and computing was totally disconnected and used purely for administrative purpose.

Here at Report Bee, We have an opportunity to apply the latest learning from child development on students progress data set. We can do it as the advancement in machine learning makes it easy to do multitudinal correlation study. The results can be presented in a vibrant, rich and yet a simple format that users can interact and interpret.

The following visualization is a standing example of how complex and vast amounts of data could be presented in a reader-friendly way to assist quick decision making. This chart summarizes the performance of 150,000 students across 2,047 schools in Tamil nadu.
