Information is Beautiful: How Data Visualization Will Save the World

Wes O\'Donnell

Everyday, our attention is being fought for. We’re drowning in data from work, from home, friends and family, social media and leisure; even our cars talk to us now! But because of the way our brains absorb visual information, making information “beautiful” may be the key to living healthier and wealthier and just maybe, save the world.

The audience will leave with:

A solid understanding of how data visualization is a form of “knowledge compression” and immediately grasp its importance in both business settings and social roles.

This program is a high-level view from 30,000 feet of data visualization and avoids heavy technical, granular details in favor of concepts that are easily digestible.

Wes recently spoke on this program at TEDx in November 2015.
