TiCC Colloquium: Benjamin Bach

What: Data Comics for Data-driven Storytelling
Where: WZ 104
When: Wednesday, 26 September 2018, 12:45 - 13:45 hours


Abstract

This talk investigates the potential of data comics as a medium for communicating about data through comics and visualizations (http://datacomics.net). While infographics are the very common for communication, comics are becoming increasingly popular to explain complicated concepts in science and beyond. In this talk, I will introduce data comics as a way to learn from comics how to effectively communicate complex findings in data. I will present our recent research in designing examples and investigating this medium, including data comics for networks, design patterns, and future research questions.
