The second annual symposium of the Alan Turing Institute Visualization Interest Group (#VizTIG) was held virtually on the 8th September 2020. The fields of data science and artificial intelligence are generating outputs that are too complex for humans to understand in traditional ways. This symposium focused on ways that visualisation with data analysis can help users gain better insights into their data.
Professor Roberts spoke on “The data visualisation iceberg – a reflection on data visualisation”. In his presentation he featured the ColloCaid project, discussing how the project is like an iceberg, with a large carefully curated database, that underpins the visual editor. The dynamic data visualisations appear as the user types different words.
