Dataviz and methodviz of the year, 2018
This article is originally published at https://robertgrantstats.wordpress.com
Dataviz of the year goes to Nadieh Bremer, Shirley Wu and journalist collaborators for “Bussed Out“, a Guardian US article on cities’ policies of getting rid of homeless people by giving them one-way tickets to anywhere else. It’s a masterpiece of scrollytelling with dataviz backing up and expanding on the text. Include video, interviews and photography and you have a well-nigh perfect piece of contemporary journalism.
Special mention for Gwilym Lockwood:
Methodviz of the year goes to John Zech for “What are radiological deep learning models actually learning,” an investigation into what one particular deep learning model did when it was charged with predicting respiratory diseases by looking at chest X-rays. If you are excited about deep learning, AI and such in the medical world, stop! and read this. There’s a helluva punch line; I’ll leave it to John.
