Data-Driven Storytelling | Nathalie Henry Riche | WiDS 2018

About This Video

Nathalie Henry Riche, Researcher at Microsoft Research, presents Data-Driven Storytelling at the WiDS 2018 Conference held at Stanford University on March 5, 2018.

Data visualization is a powerful medium to makes sense of large amounts of data and communicate insights gained from analyses to a general audience. Research in the field of information visualization aims at designing interactive visual interfaces to augment human cognition for exploring and communicating with data.

In this talk, I will present our latest research efforts in the field of information visualization and data-driven storytelling. Stories supported by facts extracted from data analysis (data-driven storytelling) proliferate in many different forms from static infographics shared on social media to dynamic and interactive applications available on leading news media outlets. I will present research shedding light on what makes visual stories compelling and share insights on how to empower people to build these experiences without programming.
