On our very first Analytics on Fire interview, we’re excited to be speaking to one of the top experts in the data visualization field, Alberto Cairo. Alberto is the Knight Chair at the University of Miami and the author of one of the most impactful books to date in the data visualization field, The Functional Art: An Introduction to Information Graphics and Visualization.
We invited Alberto to discuss some of the concepts laid out in The Functional Art and share his insights into what makes today’s visualization effective. In this engaging conversation, we cover an array of topics such as the common challenges when creating graphics, complexity vs. depth, using narrative in visualizations, and how to teach others to think visually. You won’t want to miss Alberto’s game-changing tips and strategies laid out in this episode!
As a special thanks, Alberto Cairo wanted to give a special gift to our AoF community – the first 40 pages of his new book coming out on March 3rd, 2016, The Truthful Art. Click here to get the first 40 pages of The Truthful Art by Alberto Cairo.
