CLT seminar: Daniel Keim - Visual Analytics: Challenges and Applications


Never before in history have data been generated and collected at such high volumes as today. As the volumes of data available to business people, scientists, and the public increase, their effective use becomes more challenging. Keeping up to date with the flood of data, using standard tools for data analysis and exploration is fraught with difficulty. The field of visual analytics seeks to provide people with better and more effective ways to understand and analyze large datasets, while enabling them to act upon their findings immediately. Visual analytics integrates the analytic capabilities of the computer and the abilities of the human analyst, allowing novel discoveries and empowering individuals to take control of the analytical process. The talk presents the challenges of visual analytics and exemplifies them with several application examples, illustrating the exiting potential of visual analysis techniques but also their limitations.
