Visual Analytics for Security

A few weeks ago Jörn Kohlhammer invited me to give a talk at the VisMaster Industry Day in Darmstadt, Germany.  It was a relaxed informal meeting where I caught up with some friends like Enrico Bertini – and I even finally got to meet one of my heroes – Jarke van Wijk – which was really exciting.

My talk was on Visual Analytics for Security.  I gave an overview of the work of  analysts in the crime and intelligence worlds and the unique challenges they face. Many of those challenges arise from the subject of their analysis: people, in all their complexity.  I hope this comes across from the slide deck.
