Fundamentals of Multimedia

Many society areas use computational applications in order to manipulate different media types, in a integrated fashion or not. The information volume generated by those applications and the need for inter-media synchronization make necessary to use coding techniques as well as standards to guarantee efficiency and interoperability. The knowledge about those techniques and standards are essential for graduated students develop research in the Multimedia area. The goal of this course is to present multimedia fundamentals, approaching important issues regarding different media types and coding methods. It is also in the scope to analyze features and limitations of available tools, applications and systems. After the course we expect the student to be capable to discuss recent related research topics. Institute of Mathematical and Computer Sciences (ICMC) São Carlos campus Mutimedia definition. Introduction to digitization. Compression of different media types. Basic compression techniques. Spatial and temporal coding.Standards. Multimedia segmentation and adaptation. Multimedia authoring.

Introduction to Programming and Computational Tools for the Social Sciences

The course offers an introduction to programming logic and computational tools for the social sciences graduate students. The course focus on procedures to (1) gather (2) organize and (3) present social data. The course aims to develop programming skills for handling data with academic purposes. Notice that this is not a methods, data analysis or computational social science course. The course is divided in two parts. In the first part we focus on preparing the computational enviroment, getting used with the tools and developing programming literacy in R, Git, SQL, Markdown, and other languages required in class. In the second part we apply the skills acquired in the first part to handle big datasets, webscrapping and third party APIs, digital files management for textual analysis, graphs, maps and other topics of interest.
