Work of Shneiderman, students featured on World Bank website

ISR-affiliated Professor Ben Shneiderman and his students are featured in a World Bank blog story about the future of "big data."

The post examines student projects from Shneiderman's Information Visualization class. Susan Moeller, the blog's author, says, "Prof. Ben Shneiderman’s students are in front of the curve in making sense of a wide range of data that is out there… and not just by applying their geek computer science skills. They are applying human insight to data--first as they consider how to sift and visualize the data, and second, as they translate their findings for all the non-geeks out there."
