Design + Data is back with an event on emergent trends in data!

The field of data science is rich with opportunities. Every week, there are new ways to collect, analyze and visualize data. This Design + Data event will examine a few of these emerging practices in working with and presenting data. This month, we're featuring two main speakers and will start our evening off with a few lightning talks.

Speakers include:

Harry Brisson, Director at the Nielsen Media Lab
Harry will speak on exploratory data visualizations using VR. Harry's work at Nielsen includes doing visualization around media viewership. In this talk, he shares examples of leading edge work as well as his own research at Nielsen. This is not your typical VR talk. Harry is an incredible speaker.

Chris Willis, Chief of Design at Domo, Inc.
Chris will speak to crafting new narratives with data, including with AR. He brings more than 25 years of design leadership in web, mobile and data visualization to Domo as Chief of Design. Since Domo’s inception, Chris has brought his hyper focus to combining data, technology and emerging trends in innovative ways, which continues to make Domo an indispensable tool for customers.
