Working At The Boundaries Of Aesthetics And Inference

Data visualization is increasingly consumed on readily-accessible web devices through highly responsive and interactive interfaces. This is a huge boon for consumers of such data but much of the current energy around visualization is centered on new tools and methods for creating more engaging presentations, with little focus on aiding decision making. In this talk I’ll cover how data visualization is used at Activision and offer a set of guiding principles we strive to follow in the pursuit of combining intuitive, engaging data visualization with statistical information needed for sound reasoning.
