'Data in the Wild: Capturing, wrangling, and visualising data' by Professor Annika Hinze

Almost all aspects of a person's life now include digital elements, through smart watches, smart homes and mobile phones. Cultural practices are captured on video and even historic documents are being scanned and made available for digital consumption. With the information gathered from digital devices, we can identify patterns for diverse uses, from preventing accidents in hazardous workplaces to delivering cultural information relevant to a person's location.

In this lecture, Professor Annika Hinze talks about the challenges of leaving the lab and its well-structured data, and engaging with real-world issues such as processing and visualising data 'in the wild'.

Annika Hinze is a Professor in the School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences. Her area of expertise is in detecting patterns in data collected from body-worn sensors and the environment, mobile data, as well as content in digital libraries.

This 45-minute public lecture will be held at the Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts at the University of Waikato in Hamilton, starting at 5.45pm. Opus Bar will be open from 5pm.

Free parking is available on campus via Gate 2B, Knighton Road, Hamilton from 4.30pm.
