Speaker: Mikhail Shubin, PhD Student
Everybody loves visualization! It is used to search the data for new discoveries and to communicate these discoveries to fellow scientists.
But are we doing it right? Could we do it better? Is it possible we were lost in a hype?
I will try to give a brief overview of scientific visualization from the point of graphic design. I will use keywords like “information/noise ratio”, “human visual cognition”, “fashion”, “colour blindness” and “everybody is doing it wrong”. But I would prefer having a discussion instead of a lecture; I will bring a number of examples which (I hope) we can talk about together.
About me: My name is Mikhail, I have a masters degree in CS and bioinformatics. Now I’m spending my last months as a PhD student in Statistics. I have a blog about scientific visualization https://ctg2pi.wordpress.com.
