Data Visualization for Scientists and Engineers

Sep

23

1:00 - 2:30 p.m. ET

Make breakthrough discoveries. Transcend communication barriers. Fully embrace data-driven decision making. 

That’s the power of good data visualizations, backed by statistics and best practices.

Join us for a discussion with analytics leaders on how to use best practices in data visualization to democratize data access and analysis, and to increase data literacy and graphicacy at your organization. We’ll also talk about why visualizing data and sharing insights as they emerge should be an integral part of the discovery process – enabling data exploration and informing the next analyses we pursue.

Featured Keynote

Amoolya Singh, Statistically Speaking

Amoolya Singh

Head of Discovery Technologies, Calico

Amoolya leads the use of advanced computing capabilities, including data science and machine learning, to accelerate Calico’s ability to make new scientific discoveries. Prior to joining Calico, Amoolya was Vice President of Research and Development at Amyris, where she led a 30-person bioinformatics and software engineering group whose work included innovations in genotype representation and data visualization; building mathematical and statistical models to analyze high-throughput, multivariate genotype and phenotype data; and more.

Panel Discussion

Savvy organizations establish a shared organizational language and platform for understanding data and making discoveries. This grows the impact of data and results, leads to richer collaboration, and speeds strategic decision making across business areas. Hear examples from innovative organizations during a discussion with:

  • Amoolya Singh, Calico
  • Kathleen M. Schneider, Lundbeck
  • Scott Wise, SAS

 

Meet the Speakers

What will you learn?

In today’s world, good visual design is as important as good grammar. A well-designed graph helps you construct a narrative and interactively share findings in ways colleagues and decision makers can readily understand and act upon. Understanding data visualization best practices can help you gain momentum for your ideas and communicate about data in an accessible, influential way. When designing graphs for others, we must carefully construct thoughtful graphs to help our audiences consume the information with ease.  

You'll gain a better understanding of:

 

  • How to design graphs that speak to people with varying data skill sets.
  • How to gain momentum for your ideas with shared data visualizations.
  • Ways to improve graphicacy and data savvy at your organization.
  • The power of giving people the chance to see complex relationships in the data and interact with it themselves.
  • Mapping the right graph to the right problem.
