Stats + Stories: Visualization And Reporting Goals

Oct 3, 2017

WYSO is partnering with Stats and Stories, a podcast produced at Miami University.

Alberto Cairo @albertocairo is the Knight Chair in Visual Journalism at the University of Miami. He's also director of the visualization program at UM's Center for Computational Science.

Alberto Cairo writes in his book The Truthful Art, that "an outstanding visual presentation will have five qualities: it is truthful, functional, beautiful, insightful and enlightening." Cairo, the Knight Chair in visual journalism in the School of Communication and the director of the visualization program at the Center for computational science at University of Miami in Florida, joins John Bailer, chair of the department of statistics at Miami University, and Richard Campbell, chair of the department of media journalism and film, for a Stats + Stories short on data visualization. 

Stats and Stories is a partnership between Miami University's Departments of Statistics and Media, Journalism and Film and the American Statistical Association. You can follow us on Twitter or iTunes.
