Make Data More Human
In this talk, Jer will share with the audience how adding meaning and narrative to huge amounts of data can help people take control of the information that surrounds them, and revolutionize the way we utilize data.
“Jer uses cutting-edge visualization techniques that make large volumes of data more accessible and allow data professionals to tell better stories. Jer’s work intersects research, technology, science, art and design and we are very excited that he has agreed to be our keynote speaker.” ~ Jen Stirrup, PASS Board of Directors, Business Analytics Portfolio
