Abstract:

In academia, data visualization is traditionally used for exploration and analysis of data. In the real world, the vast majority of people see a different kind of visualization use, however: presentation. Communicating data to people effectively is a huge challenge and a huge opportunity. We are only starting to understand how the visual display of data helps with that, how well people can read visual displays, how much they are engaged by them, etc.
 
In this talk, Speaker Dr. Robert Kosara from Tableau Software will show some of his recent work on the presentation of data using visualization and talk about where the field is heading.
