2012 MassTLC Big Data Panel: Is Visualization Art or Science? (Slides)

Monday, July 29, 2013   (0 Comments)

Enterprises are waking up to the deluge of opportunities to collect and analyze data on every aspect of their business. However, bigger, faster, and more complicated data doesn’t necessarily mean more clarity for the end users…in fact, often it means just the opposite. Extracting big value from big data requires an equal focus on the front-end visualization and user experience as well as the underlying data analytics and infrastructure.

The panel kicked off with an overview by moderator Richard Dale, where he defined big data, identified where data comes from, reviewed ways in which to cull meaning from it.

In discussion the question, "Is Visualization Art or Science?" the panelists agreed that visualization is more than just providing the customer or end-user with a chart or graph explaining the data. Rather, visualization provides a tool to get people to act on the data, making decisions and implementing processes, giving them a sense of ownership of what otherwise is just a lot of information that would have been useless.

The panelists: Irene Greif of IBM, Martin Leach of The Broad Institute, and Andrew Pandre of Sears Holdings Corporation
