They led IBM's Visual Communication Lab and their landmark system,, was the first to put powerful visualization tools in the hands of a general audience. Their vision of democratizing visualization has empowered journalists, businesspeople, and scientists to tell stories with data.

Also speaking: Austin Gardner-Smith will talk about, a web application designed to make it easy to gather, customize, and share news and information from across the web
