BOOKS

Why Information Grows (2015)

What is economic growth? And why, historically, has it occurred in only a few places? Previous efforts to answer these questions have focused on institutions, geography, finances, and psychology. MIT's César Hidalgo, however, took a step back and focused on the evolution of information, and on the ability of people to generate it.

Reviews:

The Economist: "Mr Hidalgo succeeds brilliantly in bringing his complex subject to life. His book is full of nuggets, from memorable phrases to interesting metaphors." 

The Financial Times: "Hidalgo has made a bold attempt to synthesise a large body of cutting-edge work into a readable, slender volume. This is the future of growth theory and his thought-provoking book deserves to be widely read." (Full Review)

Paul Romer: "Anybody interested in the future of mathematical theory in economics should read Cesar Hidalgo’s book Why Information Grows."

Steven Pinker: "The concept of information is necessary to make sense of anything that is not a boring featureless mass, including life, mind, society, and value. Why Information Grows lucidly explains the foundations of this essential concept, while creatively applying it in exciting new ways. It is filled with interesting ideas, and a pleasure to read."

Projects

DataUSA (2016)

DataUSA is the most comprehensive site visualizing public data for the United States. Through interactive profiles, DataUSA makes available data from a variety of public sources, including the American Community Survey, the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, the Department of Education (IPEDS), and the county health records from the University of Wisconsin in Maddison.

DataUSA was created in a collaboration between DataWheel, Deloitte, and The Macro Connections Group at The MIT Media Lab.  

Shout (2016)

Can I borrow your network? Shout! is a marketplace for retweets that allows people to exchange micro-contracts for future retweets. Shout! facilitates the coordination of social media diffusion efforts by groups.

Shout! was created together with Ambika Krishnamachar as part of her requirement for a Master's of Engineering.

Streetscore (2014)

Streetscore is a computer vision algorithm that estimates people's perception of urban environments. We have used Streetscore to create high resolution maps of urban perception with the goal of studying the social impact of urban perception, and also, to study urban change.

Streetscore was created together with Nikhil Naik. The Streetscore website was created together with Nikhil Naik and Jade Philipoom.

Pantheon (2014)

Pantheon is an effort to map our species collective memory by focusing on globally famous biographies.

Pantheon was developed by Amy Yu, in collaboration with Kevin Hu and Shahar Ronen. 

DataViva (2013)

DataViva made available data for the entire economy of Brazil, including exports and imports for each municipality and product, and occupation data for every municipality, industry, and occupation. 

DataViva was created in a collaboration between FapeMIG, DataWheel, and the Macro Connections group at the MIT Media Lab.

Immersion (2013)

The current interface of emails is designed around time, and messages, pushing people to focus on what is more recent rather than important. Immersion is a design experiment that centers the email interface on people and the networks that people form. 

Immersion was developed by Daniel Smilkov and Deepak Jagdish as part of their requirement for a Masters in Media, Arts, and Sciences.

Participie (2012)

Participie was a design experiment on direct participation for constrained choices (like budgets). 

Participie was developed by Ali Almossawi.

The Observatory of Economic Complexity (OEC) (2011)

The Observatory of Economic Complexity (OEC) makes more than fifty years of international trade data available through tens of millions of interactive visualizations.

The OEC was developed by Alexander Simoes as part of his requirement to complete his Masters in Media, Arts, and Sciences.

Place Pulse(2011)

Place Pulse is a crowdsourcing effort to map urban perception. By asking users to select images from a pair, Place Pulse collects the data needed to evaluate people's perceptions of urban environments. This data is also the data used to train Streetscore.

Place Pulse was developed by Phil Salesses as part of his requirement to complete his master thesis. The present version of Place Pulse was re-engineered by Daniel Smilkov and Deepak Jagdish.
