Ever since human beings first started collecting information, we've been overwhelmed by how to make sense of the deluge of data. In today's digital age, the challenge is even more crushing. Information is being created faster than even our fastest supercomputers can process, and the human impact of how we interpret and use data -- as well as who makes crucial decisions -- could be both miraculous and disastrous.
Join the discussion with The Leonardo and special guest Miriah Meyer, USTAR researcher at the University of Utah's Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute, who uses data visualization to help researchers see things they never imagined. Meyer is a rising tech star, who's received kudos from places like Fast Company, Technology Review and Microsoft.
