In this latest Data Science Central webinar, Dr. Spotfire Representative Neil Kanungo is joined by TIBCO Chief Analytics Officer Michael O’Connell for a discussion on visual design best practices and the science behind visual perception. They discuss the importance of accuracy and cognitive speed in human perception, and how to design visual applications to avoid subjective bias and illusion.

You will come away with a greater understanding of visual analytics communication and tips to improve your own work. Michael will draw from his extensive work in this area and his book on visual analytics best practices, “A Picture is Worth a Thousand Tables.” Follow along using the TIBCO Spotfire® visual data science application at https://www.tibco.com/covid19 and read this blog post for context https://community.tibco.com/blog.
