We have Steve Haroz on the show to talk about visual perception in visualization. Steve is a research scientist at Saclay, France near Paris (AVIZ) where he studies how “the brain perceives and understands visually displayed information like charts and graphs.”
Steve is also a very active figure on Twitter, where he is frequently asked to comment on visual perception problems in visualization.
On the show, we talk about what vision science is, practical examples of the use of vision science in data visualization, and how to use visual science to make predictive decisions about our data visualization designs.
Enjoy the show!
