Our next SoCal People Analytics meetup is about a skill we all use daily in our analytics profession, data visualization. Our guest Cindy Xiong from Northwestern University's Visual Thinking Lab discusses perceptual and cognitive biases in Visual Data Communication.
Cindy's research combines visual perception, cognition, and data visualization. By investigating how humans perceive, interpret, and make decisions from visualized data, she answers questions such as "what are the underlying perceptual and cognitive processes when people make sense of data visualizations?", and "how can we design an effective visualization or tell a good story with data?"
