M626: Exploring Hip-Hop through Data in Splash Spring 2019 (Apr. 27, 2019)
We will discuss and analyze hip-hop, America's most popular genre of music as of last year in terms of amount consumed, through data. There are many hip-hop related datasets available, including one collected by the teacher of this class! Exciting data science techniques are being applied to understand interesting properties of hip-hop through this data. For instance, in a very recent study done at Cornell, novel network-analysis techniques were applied to hip-hop collaboration data that aided in predicting future collaborations between hip-hop artists. Data science is one of the hottest fields right now, and we will be discussing fundamental techniques in data science while looking at interesting data!
