Data analysis is a complex process with frequent shifts among data formats, tools and models, as well as between symbolic and visual thinking. How might the design of improved tools accelerate people's exploration and understanding of data? Covering both interactive demos and principles from academic research, this session will examine how to craft a careful balance of interactive and automated methods, combining concepts from data visualization, machine learning, and computer systems to design novel interactive analysis tools. Participants should expect to learn about current trends in visual data analysis tools and gain new insights applicable to their own work.
