Open Government and Innovation: Experts Explore Visualization

The Open Government and Innovation event was held earlier this week in DC and featured:

Ben Shneiderman, founding director of the Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory and professor at the University of Maryland - if he’s speaking where you are, go. I guarantee you will learn something.

Andrew Turner, chief technology officer for FortiusOne/GeoCommons - he’s on the geo circuit, so you’ll likely run into him

Susan Adams, chief technology officer for Microsoft’s federal sector - new name to me

Each pointed to visualization techniques such as mashups and Photosynth, but noted there are still challenges. Shneiderman “noted the difficult computer network administrators have had finding visualization tools that help them understand the status and performance of their networks.”
