Data-driven: at the intersection of design and analytics by Dean Malmgren

As a co-founder of Datascope Analytics, a data-driven consulting and design firm here in Chicago, Dean has learned first hand about how the modern data deluge makes statistics and design particularly valuable in today's marketplace. In this talk, he will share his experience as a consultant for a wide range of clients by walking us through a few of his engagements, from idea generation to prototype to delivery.

Great news also is that Datascope Analytics is hiring! Come hear Dean talk and then introduce yourself.

Matej Mavricek will briefly discuss Power Switch.

This is an energy think tank in Chicago focusing on effective research of the US Energy sector. He has a particular interest in creating some visualizations of the Electric Power Grid. He will discuss his objectives for a visualization and present the data that Power Switch has gathered. Anyone interested in creating visualizations of this data will be able to post them on the CDVG website and solicit feedback from other CDVG members. Matej will also offer feedback on the visualizations created and Power Switch may choose to use the visualizations in their materials. This is a great opportunity to get practice and exposure!

    Hi,
    Will the slides be made available from the presentations?

    • Dean M.

      I had to redact a few slides (more so than in the presentation) for the published version, but I posted them on slideshare http://www.slideshare...­

    Excellent - really enjoyed the opportunity to meet people and learn about datascope analytics.

    The two presentations were very different from one another, but felt the one by datascope was a great way to discuss both methodology and ways to visualize data for action

    I loved the combination of being able to react to Matej's data challenge, then to hear from Dean about how he and his colleagues have reacted to corporate data challenges in their consulting. Exciting, engaging stuff.

    What is Matej's email address?
    I want to help connect him to some contacts I have at Northeast Utilities, where I did a BI project.

    The first speaker was disappointing - Matej did not seem to understand either the business he was trying to model or the data he was trying to visualize. He was clearly asking for help, but could not effectively convey what he wanted help with. The second speaker was quite good. He whet my appetite to learn more about using the Raphaël, Backbone and Ember javascript libraries.

    Stimulating SIG, expect more to come...

    First speaker, ill prepared. Second speaker solid. (1 + 5) / 2 = 3 (assumes more stars is better)

    August 29, 2012

  • Josh D.

    There should be.

    August 28, 2012

  • Adam K.

    I signed up for two people. Is there room for the person I was going to bring?

    August 28, 2012

  • Sarah C.

    will the presentations start promptly at 6, or will there be a little "mixer" beforehand, like last time?

    August 27, 2012

    • Josh D.

      We will start at 6pm. You are welcome to show up earlier if you want. Refreshments are BYOB.

  • Sista Yaa S.

    Looking forward to learning more about the topic. Sista Yaa

    OK, I am confused. Are we drinking beer or talking about Data Visualization? If we meet at 6 PM and order a beer, are you sure we can get downtown in 20 Minutes and still consume the beer? It seems like a tight timeline unless we can take the beer on the L with us...

    August 20, 2012

    • Josh D.

      Oops. Thanks Suzanne. I was too quick with the submit button. We are no longer meeting at Lincoln Station but will meet at TechNexus. Refreshments that evening will be BYOB.
