The Importance of Data Visualization
Lecturer Associate Professor Seiichiro Aoki

With the significant increase in computer processing power, it has become possible to handle diverse and large amounts of data, known as big data. Generative AI, which has been used in various fields in recent years, for example, in the field of language, large-scale language models generated by learning large amounts of text data are being utilized. Currently, as such tools become more better, the processing content is becoming more and more like a black box. While users can utilize data without necessarily understanding its characteristics, data analysis specialists, called data scientists, are required to extract valuable information from data and use it for business purposes, and visualization. For example, spatial distribution can be understood from images, and time-series changes can be understood from videos. In this mini lecture, I will talk about the importance of data visualization, including videos made by students in our master project.
