  • Data Preparation For Fast Insights Right From the Start Oct 7 2015 7:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Dr. Kirk Borne, Principal Data Scientist, Strategic Innovation Group, Booz Allen Hamilton
    Data preparation is occasionally referred to as data plumbing, suggesting that it is dirty grunge work that is an unglamorous necessity. We will see how this point of view misses entirely the discovery potential, value, and “thrill of the chase” that data preparation can offer. Data prep includes the all important first step in any analytics project: “Know Thy Data” (which is one of the fundamental principles of data science). We discuss data profiling, data transformations and normalization, feature selection and engineering, and more data prep approaches that empower you to begin learning from your data right out of the “starting gate” on your analytics project. Learning from Data (i.e., data science) doesn’t begin after data prep, but right from the start.

  • The Beautiful Science of Data Visualization Jul 16 2015 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Jeff Pettiross, User Experience Designer, Tableau Software
    Seeing and understanding data is richer than creating a collection of queries, dashboards, and workbooks.You will see how visual and cognitive science explain what makes data visualization so deeply satisfying. Why does a collection of bars, lines, colors, and boxes become surprisingly powerful and meaningful? How does fluid interaction with data views multiply our intelligence? Three decades of research into the beautiful science of data visualization explain why history have converged at this moment, and why interactive data visualization has brought us to the verge of an exciting new revolution.
  • Why Visualization is Critical for Data Wrangling Jul 16 2015 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins

  • Flux and Future Narratives: Storytelling with Time, Space, and Torque Jul 16 2015 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Aurelia Moser, Map Scientist, CartoDB
    Maps provide us with some of the most intuitive ways to represent data visually, principally because they provide a way to rectify our physical locality with some digital and data-dense topography; they help us build narrative with relevant geolocation and let us tell trends with data on a geospatial-sensitive canvas. For certain types of complex data, this can translate otherwise overwhelming and obscure information to a usable interface; at [CartoDB], we've been working on building open source tools and tutorials to enable this kind of narrative craft with mashups of geospatial information and time-series data. We designed [Torque] as a library to give temporal dimension to mapped data, and we use it in partnership with [OdysseyJS] to craft geo-narrative in code. I'll be reviewing ways visualize data with maps, ways to jumble, sort and query geospatial information, and ways to customize rendering with Javascript and CartoCSS to build beautiful visualizations that compliment a narrative arc of spacetime proportions.
  • Data Visualization in Data Science Jul 16 2015 11:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Maloy Manna, Project Manager, AXA Data Innovation Lab
    Having data is not enough. Adding context to data is essential to understand the data, find patterns and engage audiences. Data visualization is a key element of data science, the interdisciplinary field which deals with finding insights from data. In this webinar, we explore the roles of data visualization at different stages of the data science process, and why it is essential. We also look at how data is encoded visually with shape, size, color and other variables and also the basic principles of visual encoding can be applied to build better visualizations. We cover narratives, types of bias and maps. Finally we look at how various tools – both open source and off-the-shelf software that’s used in data science to build effective data visualizations.
  • Building Data value in the connected economy – insights & practical examples Jul 15 2015 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Mark Skilton, Digital Leader, PA Consulting; Eric Hannell, Senior Consultant, Tableau; Derk Steemers, CMO,
    The value on data is rapidly shifting in many industries , recent high profile examples are the shift in ePayments where the micropayment transaction values are trending to fractions of cost. The value is more in what the payments provider and the banking system knows about the individual and the buying behaviour. Another is in the recent “Swift versus Apple” and Amazon tinkering with some eBook payments towards authors being “paid per number of pages read”. The issue of data and analytics is central to the sharing economy and the crowd economy that are driving new economic and monetisation business models.

    This panel session looks at the emerging tools and business models that seek to deal with the digital convergence of data, customers and companies and the disintermediation and re-intermediation of markets.

  • Generating insight in healthcare by interacting with Big Data sources Recorded: Jun 25 2015 36 mins
    Stephen Black, Senior Manager, Deloitte on behalf of Tableau Software
    One of the major barriers to improving healthcare is making sense of the large volume of data involved. We show that a combination of Google's BigQuery and Tableau allows insightful, interactive analysis of English primary care prescribing data – approximately £35bn of NHS spend, £4.5 bn prescriptions issued by 10k GP practices from about 25k drugs). Tableau can allow insights into national trends but also allow interactive drill down to analyse local prescribing patterns for narrow ranges of drugs. We show how interaction even with large datasets greatly improves the impact of analysis on behaviour.
