This is a surprising collaboration. Definitely welcome, though!
Datapolis’ chief data scientist Milan Janosov Ph.D. collaborated with digital artist Flora Borsi to create a paper that merged data science with art. The two analyzed Isaac Asimov’s science fiction book series Foundation and turned the results into a unique digital artwork.
The researchers analyzed over 350,000 words to create the artwork. "We found that among the most mentioned keywords there were three different planets. If someone is familiar with Foundation they know very well that it is a journey across the galaxy and also across time, because it is set in the far future. So we started to look at the planets themselves and how their storylines unfold," Janosov explained.
