Big Data to Big Art with Henry Trae Winter | CfA

source: Harvard University    2016年2月19日
We currently live in the Information Age, where terms like "Big Data" and the "Internet of Things" are ingrained into the public consciousness. This massive compilation of data is useless without tools to aid us in comprehending what the numbers mean. These tools are almost always visual in nature and creating them requires not only a knowledge of math and science, but also an understanding of how human beings interpret and interact with the world around them. We will explore a few large datasets and the tools developed to visualize them, and see that the boundaries between art and science are very often blurred. Speaker: Dr. Henry “Trae” Winter
