Experts from the fields of technology, design, energy and more have been exploring the value of harnessing big data to reveal key insights in their fields. At SXSW Eco, big data is a theme that resonates throughout all of our tracks. Experts in policy and activism, technology, design, energy and more will lead thought provoking panels and straight-to-the-point discussions on the power of big data. Check out just a few examples:
How do you inform, educate and empower not just specialists but ordinary citizens too? Can visualizing carbon emissions in engaging, yet accurate ways be helpful? This panel will explore global movements by organizations such as the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), and C40, who last year release a dynamic infographic showcasing data from cities around the world.
This straight to the point in our design track will feature George Oates, Art Director for Stamen Design. George will explore and demonstrate some key projects in the area of scientific and environmental data visualization and raise challenges that organizations face in revealing their data.
