The new world of data exploration using virtual, augmented, and mixed reality brings powerful new capabilities and challenges for data visualization engineers, designers, and professionals. Brad Sarsfield demonstrates new input and output capabilities of holographic computing in relation to mixed-reality data visualizations with examples that are both visually beautiful and deeply practical.
Holograms let us make smarter decisions and explore ideas faster by inspecting every vantage point of our data and interacting with it in new, more personal and human ways. There are new rules for the new world. Join Brad as he explores and experiments with the possibilities of the next generation of data visualization experiences.
