Recorded along the lovely Boston Harbor (enjoy the outdoor sounds), in this week’s episode of The PolicyViz Podcast, I chat with Lane Harrison, Assistant Professor in the Computer Science Department at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. We not only talk about Lane’s interesting research in data visualization–including how emotions affect our perception of graphs and content–but also the current state of the field, Github, and Amazon’s Mechanical Turk.
Thanks again for tuning in and supporting the show. The show is now available on Google Play, so if you’re an Android user, please check it out! And please help others learn about it by reviewing the show on iTunes or your favorite podcast provider.
