What role can visualization play in understanding and managing climate change? Data analytics experts Fernanda Viégas and Martin Wattenberg will discuss a series of projects that visualize and portray climate and weather, and explore issues that these projects have raised.

Viégas and Wattenberg are long-time collaborators who led IBM’s Visual Communication Lab and co-founded Flowing Media, Inc., a visualization studio focused on media and consumer-oriented projects. Before joining the Harvard faculty, they also co-founded and led the “Big Picture” team at Google and Google Research’s PAIR (People + AI Research) initiative, which researches and designs AI systems that improve human-AI interactions. The systems Viégas, Wattenberg, and their teams have created are used daily by millions of people. With the goal of democratizing AI technology and visualization, their work engages with important societal questions, expectations, and values, including those related to climate change.
