Data Humanism
How can data visualization design can make a difference and make data more meaningful for people’s lives? 
How can we make a real difference now that the ways we relate to information are evolving more rapidly than we realize? 
Now that we are past what we can call “peak infographics” and we are left with a general audience that understands much more of what we’re doing in our profession: an audience that is ready to welcome a second wave of more meaningful and thoughtful visualizations. Giorgia will discuss how to see this moment as an opportunity to jumpstart a new renaissance, where we can question the impersonality of a merely technical approach to data, where we are ready to reconnect numbers to what they really stand for: which are more and more our lives.
