Data Visualization in the Age of Mobile and Wearables


It's no surprise that our digital world is increasing in complexity: our devices continue to pump out exponentially increasing amount of data and digital content. With the increase in complexity, the appetite for making sense of our digital world is also increasing, driving up the demand for serious data visualizations for improved understanding and faster and better decision-making. Standing on the shoulders of giants like Edward Tufte, Stephen Few and John Tukey and grounded in fundamental IA principles, this session will explore major trends and exciting opportunities in modern data visualization afforded by the availability of near real-time multi-dimensional data. First, we will examine at the role rich graphics play in creating premium experiences offered by mobile platforms: Apple Watch, Android Wear, iOS and Android. Next we will trace the evolution of data-dense graphics like sparklines, box plots, bullet graphs, maps (and more) in consumer and in the emerging "semi-professional" infographics space. Lastly, we will explore how the lessons learned in mobile and wearable space can enhance a variety of web and desktop applications such as search, ecommerce, dashboards and business workflows.​
