Data+visual London is back to hold another incredible event – this time at SHACK15.


Emily Chen is a Consulting Analyst with The Information Lab. She also co-organizes the London Data Plus Women group and is a newly minted Tableau Ambassador. Her favorite chart type – the bar chart!

Talk: I’m doing a talk on how some NBA players are better than others on taking advantage of bad calls by refs. I’ll be covering my process in finding insight in a domain sphere that I don’t know very well – sports!

Here are some techniques I’ll be covering:

• synthesizing which pieces of criteria together have larger implications (i.e. do the bad calls turn games)

• thinking about the problem I wanted to solve and how the data has to be reshaped to fit it

• developing very strong knowledge of at least 1 player

• watching the bad calls/fouls to understand the scenario in which it occurred
