Event Details


Tech@State is all about data visualization September 23 in the Atrium and Foyers at the Kennedy Center.  Through visualization, we can view information in a variety of ways that will allow us to draw conclusions and convey messages that before would have been drowned in a sea of numbers.  This conference will explore fascinating and innovative visualization techniques.

Edward Tufte

Adam Bly from Seed Media Group

Jonathan Cousins

Laura Kurgan from Columbia University’s Spatial Information Lab

Aleem Walji from the World Bank Institute’s Innovation Team
