Details:

Data visualisation is a fundamental tenet of data science, along with other aspects like statistics, high performance computing and infrastructures. However, in reality, data visualisation goes beyond conventional notions simply visualising data. By encapsulating and embedding rather rich set of operations as part of the data visualisation, it is possible to extend data visualisation to cover most of the data science. In this debate, the speakers, who are both industrialists, will discuss this in great detail.
