ODSC East 2016 | Peter Wang – “Interactive Viz of a Billion Points with Bokeh Datashader”
Abstract: Interactive visualization is the best way to explore and communicate insights about data. Whether you are dealing with geospatial, time series or tabular data, interactive graphics allow everyone on your team, from analysts to executives, to understand the patterns in your data. As data grows to include millions and billions of points, traditional visualization techniques break down. Whether you’re loading the data into limited memory or separating the signal from the noise, as data gets big, visualization gets challenging.
In this session, attendees will learn how to:
- Visualize Big Data in new *right* ways.
- Interactively visualize 100 million data points in a Jupyter Notebook.
- Visualize the famous NYC taxi ride data set at a new level of detail and interactivity.
Join us for this session and learn to visualize and explore your largest data sets in new ways with the innovative open source technology incubated by Continuum Analytics.
Bio: Peter has a B.A. in Physics from Cornell University, and has been developing commercial scientific computing and visualization software for over 15 years. He has software design and development experience across a broad variety of areas, including 3D graphics, geophysics, financial risk modeling, large data simulation and visualization, and medical imaging.Peter’s interests in the fundamentals of vector computing and interactive, large-scale visualization led him to co-founding Continuum Analytics. As CTO, Peter is the technology visionary and leads the product engineering team for the Anaconda platform as well as open source projects including Bokeh and Blaze. As a creator of the PyData conference, he also devotes time and energy to growing the Python data community by advocating, teaching, and speaking about Python at conferences worldwide.
