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 visualisation so deeply satisfying. Why does a collection of bars, lines, colours, 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 visualisation explain why history have converged at this moment, and why interactive data visualisation has brought us to the verge of an exciting new revolution.
In the second part of the session, students will have the chance to see and get trained on a data visualisation tool, Tableau Software. Tableau Software is today a leader in Business Intelligence and Analytics platform (source: Gartner) and is definitely becoming a skill worth acquiring.
According to a recent LinkedIn study, statistical analysis and data mining is ranked among the top 5 skills to get you hired in 2016.
“Today’s workplace is one where data analytics skills are no longer a nice to have, but a must. The sheer amount of data available today means that the ability to quickly draw valuable insights is absolutely critical for business success. It is certainly a skill that will present a key advantage to recent graduates over their peers.” said Paul Chapman, Business Intelligence CoE Manager at easyJet and Tableau user.
The session is presented by Thierry Driver of Tableau Software.
