With all the discussion circulating about data (and it’s power to transform industry practices and disrupt behavior in digital), there's a surprising lack of discussion on data in UX.

Huge’s Jessica L’Esperance moderates a panel featuring Method's Catherine Nygaard, Stamen Design’s George Oates, Facebook’s Matt Gallivan and AnswerLab’s John Cheng, as they provide their distinct perspectives on how they use data, both big and small, to make decisions about design.
