Data visualization from clay tablets to the industrial metaverse by Jim Bennett
What do clay tablets from the Minoan civilization and the industrial metaverse have in common? Despite being from completely different ends of the technology spectrum, they essentially do the same job – visualizing data. From recording sales transactions 11,000 years ago to monitoring some of our most sophisticated technological marvels today, data visualization has been an important part of civilization. It has grown in sophistication as we have needed to visualize and manage growing amounts of data that change at an ever-increasing rate. This session takes you on a journey over that 11,000-year period, showing how we as humans have thought of data and needed to visualize it. From tables in clay to maps and charts, and onwards to structures so complex that the metaverse becomes the perfect tool for visualizing live data that updates sometimes many times a second. We’ll look at the tools and technologies that tame this data and provide the building blocks for the industrial metaverse, discuss the problems of visualizing large amounts of data, and then get hands-on with a demo showing how the industrial metaverse can visualize data from the international space station in near-real-time.
