Data Visualization: A New Frontier in Analytics


Visual analytics builds on our natural ability to absorb a greater volume of information in visual, rather than in numeric and textual form and to perceive certain patterns, shapes and shades more easily than others. The scope of analytics integrates visualization, data analysis and human factors by deploying statistics, machine vision, analytical algorithm science and technology. IBM researchers, user experience experts and software engineers make big, complex data actionable through skillful visual design, compelling interaction, sound analytic methods, and solid engineering.

In this seminar, you will have an opportunity to hear from some of researchers, project managers and engineers on how they have experimented with visual analytics, innovated solutions and developed products.

IBM is poised to be a leader in visual analytics. It has invested in research centers, developed visual analytics products and implemented visual analytics techniques across all IBM solutions.
