Making quick and accurate decisions is vital in certain environments. However, often the visualized data is based on antiquated presentation paradigms leading to user frustration, inaccuracy in interpretation and the potential for life-threatening mistakes. This lecture will explore this topic through the lens of different work environments, and provide some examples of how the design of data can make the situation better.
The lecture is open to PolyU's staff and students. Event registration is required.
