CS Tea Talk with Eric Alexander

Thursday, April 8th, 2021
4:00 – 4:45 pm / Zoom

Professor Eric Alexander will speak about "Perceptual and cognitive biases reading word cloud visualizations."  Eric conducts interesting interdisciplinary work in data visualization, and this is a great chance to learn about some of that work. You've probably seen a word cloud at some point and may have wondered "is this really a good way to get a sense of a text?"  Eric's talk will help us to understand what we might be gaining or missing when we look at these visualizations! This talk promises to give insight into the human side of making sense of visualizations.

CS Tea is taking place via Zoom this term. Sign up for the cs-interest mailing list to get the weekly link and join us via Zoom.
