  • Data Visualization and the Future of Research

    by Joshua Greenberg, Lee Dirks, Marguerite Avery and Johan Bollen

    Data are the building blocks of information, fueling our algorithmic digital world. But with so much data being produced, how can we process it? Visualization techniques allow users to understand vast amounts of data that we can’t parse. Get up to speed on techniques of data visualization from scientific researchers and scholars working in informatics, computer science, and physics – and see how these tools can help you understand Twitter. And data analysis and visualization isn’t just for science. The digital humanities movement shows us that innovative data practices aren’t just for science anymore. See innovative digital humanities research in data mining and visualization that will have you thinking differently about literature and history. This panel focuses on developments in data visualization strategies but will also covers the basics of data, some major issues with data analysis and data visualization, and prominent theories of visualization.

    At 3:30pm to 4:30pm, Saturday 10th March
