Representations of data are everywhere and seem to be easily available. Data visualizations can inform people’ s understanding of the world and even affect their political engagement. We’ve brought together some panelists who work with the nuts and bolts of presenting both responsible and interesting data to the public to convene a discussion about data, people and how the two work together to broaden worldviews.
Our panelists include: Eric Buth, architect of TPM’s Polltracker and current member of the New York Times graphics team, and Ky Harlin, from Buzzfeed’s data team.
Join us for an afternoon of chatting about data and people.
