We live in an era in which the creation of new data is growing exponentially such that every two days we create as much new data as we did from the beginning of mankind until the year 2003. One of the greatest scientific challenges of the 21st century is to effectively understand and make use of the vast amount of information being produced. Visual data analysis will be among our most important tools to understand such large and often complex data. In this talk at the 2014 SIAM Annual Meeting, Christopher Johnson of the University of Utah presented state-of-the-art visualization techniques, including ways to visually characterize associated error and uncertainty, applied to Big Data problems in science, engineering, and medicine.
