ENAiBLE Series: Enhancing Decision-Making through Interactive Data Visualization

Monday, September 27, 2021 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm
This event will be held virtually.

Please join us for a conversation with Dominik Moritz, Senior Project Scientist in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute, and Paul Pangaro, Professor of Practice in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute in the School of Computer Science.

The size and complexity of the datasets we use to make decisions have far outpaced the tools we have today. Artificial Intelligence methods to analyze data and automate processes promise to enhance decision-making but they depend on people to define their goals, check for errors, and ultimately derive value from the results. In this conversation, Dominik will show how data visualizations facilitate human involvement in machine-assisted decision-making. Data visualizations help us understand data, suggest further analysis steps, and communicate insights.

We will discuss how interactive visualizations, in particular, enable analysts, leadership, and frontline employees alike to look at data from different angles. Ultimately, when the story the data is telling becomes clear, better decisions result in enhancing the customer experience. Our conversation will conclude with Dominik showing interactive visualizations tools he and his lab have developed that make it easy to analyze and present data. These tools help everyone become better data analysts and data communicators.

Q&A with the audience will follow.
