Visualization is a weak link in big data tools: shoving 1MM rows into standard charts breaks their visual design and kills interactivity. In our mission to scale charts, we built the Superconductor language. It automatically compiles declarative visualizations into GPU code (WebCL+WebGL). This talk will explore how we're redesigning and optimizing core charts like heat maps and line graphs. Read more.

Interested in how to leverage new browser APIs and scale data visualization? Meet with Leo to discuss using WebGL/WebCL, OpenGL/OpenCL/CUDA, and Superconductor with GPUs. Or how to work with multicore processors, using web workers, RiverTrail/ParallelJS, ASMJS/NaCL, and compiler tricks. He’ll also explore visualization design in theory and practice. Read more.
