Learning to See Data 

New York Times

“It’s about frameworks of recognition; how you choose to look, rather than what you’re trying to see. “

How do we make sense of a large amount of data – quickly?

How do we decipher news and constantly changing updates of information – sensibly?

It’s not about using algo or more powerful computer, it’s about – training our perceptive brain, virtual thinking, learning to read large amount of data instinctually.

Doctors are trained to do so as well.
