For the first Tech Talk of 2015, we are pleased to welcome former CRTC Board Member and 2010 TechAwards Legend's Circle honoree Dave Troy for a talk on Data Visualization.
What do the social networks look like in your city or country? Dave Troy (TED Talk: Social maps that reveal a city’s intersections — and separations) crunches data to see places not as neighborhoods, but as relationships between people. With his PeopleMaps project, he groups people by whom they follow and talk to on Twitter, then works with local collaborators to analyze what those people talk about most. The result? Fascinating non-geographic maps of a region’s interests and communities.
