Session Description:
Once considered the realm of scientists, these days artists, designers, journalists and others are using new data technologies, architectures and tools as part of exploring “big data” and other data-driven initiatives that build on the recent advances in computing. Yet there is wide scope beyond simple one-way informing for collaborations between these disciplines. New ways to visualize, explore, and understand data can lead to novel ways to inform, communicate, and promote scientific or practice-based insights. Ultimately, this will help transfer understanding and insight from one realm to the other, with the overall benefit of improved understanding and communication. In this session, we invite contributions from scientists, educators, artists, designers, and other professionals whose focus is on cross-disciplinary collaboration. We particularly welcome contributions from colleagues with expertise on big data or data-driven expertise as well as those who have measured, assessed, and demonstrated the impact (or lack thereof) of their activities.
