There are so many different ways to consume information now, which is the best way for you? Ravi Mistry explores how information visualisation has changed over time, and how it could be one of the most important aspects of the modern day.
We are surrounded by data and there are multiple ways to consume information now.
• What should information consumers be aware of?
• What should information designers bear in mind?
• How can we apply knowledge to the world of data?

The important of analysing written documents is growing rapidly. Join Mark Wilcock as he tell us about his experiences in text mining with examples from financial documents!
The analysis of written documents is rapidly growing in importance - not just of social media but also for legal, academic and financial documents. Many of us, including myself, are familiar with analysing and visualising quantitative tabular data but not text. This session presents a case study which is my first foray into text mining. We'll analyse a few financial documents then visualise the results in a variety of tools; R, Tableau and Power BI.
Mark Wilcock is a lazy data scientist. He likes talking with clients, understanding the business issues and exploring the data but gets bored with data munging. So all the tools he uses are practical and easy to master. Mark runs London Business Analytics Group, a popular, active meetup. He has an MA In Natural Science from Cambridge University and a MBA from Imperial College, London and is a Microsoft MVP on the Data Platform.
