Data Stories @ Southampton Science and Engineering Festival 2019

In March, Data Stories took part in the Southampton Science and Engineering Festival 2019. This is an event at the University of Southampton that invites the public to come to campus (previous years have had over 7000 visitors) to explore and discover what the world of science and engineering has to offer, including some of our cutting-edge research.

On hand, we had four members of the research team to talk to the public about our research, including Professor Les Carr, who explained the key aims and objectives of the project. We also displayed a number of software demos, including an example of using machine learning to classify data visualisations, an experimental Data Game, and a visualisation of open-data displayed in Minecraft (which proved very popular with the younger guests!)
