Event description

Description

Alberto Cairo is a leading expert on data visualization. As a professor, author, journalist, and consultant to groups including Google and the European Union, Alberto helps people organize information to enlighten and reveal. In 2017 he launched this Visual Trumpery tour, offering to waive his speaking fee to any organization that would host him for a public talk examining the misleading charts and graphs being designed across the political spectrum. He has been crisscrossing the globe discussing how to assess the reliability, truthfulness, and accuracy of graphics in this political time. Alberto is currently the Knight Chair in Visual Journalism at the School of Communication of the University of Miami. He is the author of The Functional Art: An Introduction to Information Graphics and Visualization and The Truthful Art: Data, Charts, and Maps for Communication.

This event is free, but please RSVP to reserve your spot.

Alberto’s talk starts at 4pm, and stick around after the talk to continue the conversation in The Bar.
