Next in Data Visualization
The Next in Science series allows early-career scientists whose creative, cross-disciplinary research is thematically linked to introduce their work to one another, to fellow scientists, and to nonspecialists from Harvard and the Greater Boston area.
Innovative data visualization reveals patterns and trends otherwise unseen. The four speakers in this program represent a range of visualization expertise, from human cognition to user interaction to tool design to the use of visualizations in journalism. As data sets in science, medicine, and business become larger and more diverse, the need for—and the impact of—good visualization is growing rapidly. The presentations will highlight a wide scope of visualization’s applicability, using examples from personalized medicine, government, education, basic science, climate change, and more.
