You know this workflow all to well: you do your experiments, you gather your data, you run your analyses, and then you either find what you are looking for or you don’t. But how do you find the insights in your data that you weren’t looking for? How do you make surprise discoveries? I mean, you can hardly run a statistical test or a database query for what you can’t even imagine to be in your data in the first place... This is where data visualization comes into picture. In this webinar, I will introduce you to the chances and challenges posed by interactive data visualization to not only see what you expect in your data, but also to discover the unexpected in it.
