Recent innovations in text analysis methods now allow us to measure and track people's opinions. This can be particularly interesting for Universities who aim to encourage gift giving while deflecting bad press when their scandals are reported in the media. I will discuss a project I completed for the University of Illinois - Urbana Champaign in which I used data visualization to explore and describe changes in media coverage and news sentiment for the University over time.

The Visualization Friday Forum is an informal meeting for faculty, staff and students from across the university to share their research involving the development and/or application of visualization methodologies. Each week, a speaker is invited to prepare a 35-minute informal presentation for a 50-minute time slot. The presentation is centered on a scientific problem or visualization technique. Participants in the audience are encouraged to engage in a discussion with the speaker. The goal of the weekly meetings is to build an interdisciplinary community whose combined knowledge can facilitate research and promote innovation. For weekly updates about the Visualization Friday Forum, please visit our website (http://vis.duke.edu/FridayForum) or subscribe to our listserv (https://lists.duke.edu/sympa/subscribe/visualization)

Film Screening: "A True Believer" (Liu Xiaolei, 2015, 80 min, China, in Chinese w/English subtitles, Color, Digital) / "A True Believer" is Liu Xiaolei's inquiry into old but ever more important ethical dilemmas of good and evil, and the individual's fate, as well as a filmmaker's relation to the camera that could be many different things, like a detective device that could be used to "capture and punish," something for the filmmaker to "hide behind," or a medium to "experience the hurt" of those being filmed. "A True Believer," a documentary that "took five years or so to make," looks into the ethics and economics of pick-pocketing focusing on the self-righteous members of Falcon, "an anti-pickpocketing organization," and the pick-pockets they chase. There is also an "Uyghur boy" that "appears" in the filmmaker's life and changes many things, including his relation to his film./ About the Filmmaker: Xiaolei Liu, born in 1984 in Dalian city, graduated in TV editing and directing from Liaoning University. He worked in DDATV for one year, established a culture and media company for three years, and then engaged in producing advertisement, documentaries, and feature films as a freelance. He participated in the Memory Project 2014 and completed his documentary A True Believer in 2015. / Presented by Duke University Libraries.
