Big Data: Data Visualisation

  • Imagine you’re a scientist in a lab, investigating a new strain of bacteria that’s extremely harmful and potentially deadly.
  • As a scientist you’re naturally curious, however there’s no way you would want to get too close to the bacteria and risk being contaminated.
  • In this course we offer a unique insight into different visual techniques for analysing Big Data.
  • We help you understand some different tools for creating effective visualisations, and show you examples where visualisations have been incredibly effective - such as the bacteria example.
  • We’ve created this course to share with you the multi-lensed approach we use at ACEMS that enables us to create new insights and ways of thinking around the Big Data space.
