• #6 Dataviz – How to Visualize Uncertainty?

    Feedzai - Lisbon Office

    Welcome to our 6th meetup. We are back from summer break and this time with a different format: let's have a discussion! But because we want everyone to get involved we need to limit the seats to 25. Save yours asap! Agenda: 18:45 👋 Welcome 19:00 🎙 DataViz Critique session 19:15 💬 'How to visualize uncertainty' presentation and discussion by Feedzai Data Visualization team 19:45 📢 Open discussion (bring your own questions to the table!) 20:00 📊 End of Event ******* What to expect ******* The idea is to have an informal discussion around data visualization best practices, starting with a series of critiques and possible remakes of graphs and then focusing on a more specific topic: Uncertainty in Data Visualization. When we see a data point drawn as solid point, it’s easy to consider it “the truth”. Sometimes that might be appropriate, but since nearly every data set we work with has some uncertainty, we must know how to represent it in case we want to tell the entire story. That should happen more often than not. Let's keep the discussion flowing 📈 🚀. Here are some additional perspectives and resources related to this topic: ➔ https://flowingdata.com/2018/01/08/visualizing-the-uncertainty-in-data/ ➔ https://datastori.es/134-visualizing-uncertainty-with-jessica-hullman-and-matthew-kay/ ➔ https://serialmentor.com/dataviz/visualizing-uncertainty.html In the end, we will have an open discussion where we will be addressing questions on different topics. The aim is to learn with each other and ultimately create better visualizations. Free to attend! Open to anyone interested in data visualization. *********************** Big thanks to Feedzai for hosting us and sponsoring the event 💥

The place couldn't be more suitable to enjoy two very interesting talks and to participate in a panel discussion on data in journalism with 3 additional journalists. 18:30 👋 Welcome 18:40 🎙 Ana Pinto Martinho (Research Assistant, CIES-IUL) 19:10 🎙 Sebastião Miranda (Senior Software Engineer, Priberam) 19:30 🍽️ Break / Networking 19:50 💬 Panel Discussion with our two speakers and three additional journalists: Rita Costa (Público), Rui Barros (Renascença), Raquel Albuquerque (Expresso) 21:00 📊 End of Event ******* About the Panel Discussion ******* Access to qualitative and open data, communicate complex information to an audience with little numerical literacy will take part of this panel discussion as well as other topics and current strategies and challenges. Rita Costa, Público Rui Barros, Renascença Raquel Albuquerque, Expresso Moderated by Sara and Coro ******* Data Vis for Journalists: The Growing Pains ******* The Portuguese media landscape still has a long way to go in terms of data journalism. For many newsrooms it is not a priority and those who rely on it have problems finding people with the right skills. What are the biggest challenges for newsrooms and journalists working with data and data visualization? Is there a problem with data visualization? The lecture deals with the main problems and challenges in the field of data journalism, as well as access to data and its importance for journalistic work. ***About Ana Pinto Martinho *** She has been working as a journalist for more than a decade. Currently she is the editor of the portuguese EJO website and simulatneously teaches Data Journalism at ISCTE-IUL. She directed the “iGOV” and “ – Public Administration” media outlets and worked with other media such as “Diário de Notícias”, “RTP Informação”, “Sol”, “InformationWeek” and “Semana Informática”. With a degree in Social Communication (UBI) and a Master in Communication Culture and Information Technologies (ISCTE), she is currently working on her PhD in Communication Sciences at ISCTE. Her research interests include connection between big data, data and journalism. https://www.linkedin.com/in/anapintomartinho/?originalSubdomain=de ****Developing Tools and Data Visualizations for Multilingual Media Monitoring**** We'll discuss the challenges in approaching the problem of multilingual media monitoring using machine learning and data visualization techniques. Media monitoring is essential to any organization seeking to gather insight and make important strategic decisions based on what's happening in the world at a given time. Advances in AI and machine learning have enabled the development of automatic systems to facilitate this task, but critical decisions must ultimately be made by expert humans. In this context, data visualization plays the critical role of surfacing the insights present in the data and bridging the gap between machine learning and decision making. *** About Sebastião Miranda *** Sebastião works in the R&D department of Priberam, having taken leading roles in several R&D projects over the past few years. He specializes in design, development and full-stack integration of Natural Language Processing systems into applications in the Media, Legal and Healthcare industries – He is actively searching for new opportunities for transferring state-of-the-art research results into successful products. Sebastião holds an MSc. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Instituto Superior Técnico (University of Lisbon), 2014. https://www.linkedin.com/in/sebasti%C3%A3o-miranda-2b276a68/ https://www.priberam.com/ *********************** Big thanks to Público for hosting our 5th event and to Priberam as well Social Data Lab for sponsoring us.
