In this lecture, Lev Manovich, discusses the field of cultural analytics, which takes cultural data sets, and through a given method of visualization and automatic image analysis, provides a new type of interface for media exploration. Manovich argues that, these new, digital modes of cultural analytics allow us to deal with the exponential growth of culture and its products.
