From smart phones to fitness trackers to sensor enabled buildings, data is currently being collected at an unprecedented rate. In this talk, we will explore how visualization
can be leveraged to help us entertain fun and unique questions in the data deluge. By thinking about fun questions for datasets, we will demonstrate how visual computing
can help build cross-domain collaborations, paving the way to discover new insights and challenges.
