Introduction

Starting to work with a new tool may not be easy, especially when that “tool” means a new programming language. At the same time, there might be an opportunity to build upon something already known and so make the transition smoother and less painful.

In my case, it was the transition from R to Python. …


Introduction

Generative art represents the involvement of a human-independent system (such as an algorithm) in a creative process. Such a system is a key element within the creative process, including its outputs.

Unsurprisingly, there are many “tools” you can use if you want to delve into generative art. In case you want to have “hands-on” experience in R, there are two basic directions you can go.

If you are a person proficient working with code, you may write your code straight away. …


My name is Vit Gabrhel, and I am a data enthusiast.

I started my data journey as a researcher in the mobility field, but nowadays, I envision myself on the road of becoming a “full-stack data scientist”.

I believe that data could serve not only as a way to understand the world but also to appreciate its beauty. Just take a look at the following example of the generative art located bellow. It is based solely on a data simulation, a k-d tree algorithm.

Also, I am convinced that insights from data can be transformed into action and so benefit many. May it be an evidence-based policy in public health, or an application like mobility manager making lives easier. For that to be possible, data must be available; data must flow. …
