As we approach the end of the year, it seems an appropriate time to look back and reflect on the journey. In that spirit, I wanted to share a recording of a talk that I gave at the Bio-IT World conference in 2020.
After my STAT News article on visualizing the clinical research enterprise came out in 2019, I was invited to speak at the next Bio-IT World conference as a part of their “data visualization tools” session.
This conference ended up getting bumped back and eventually went virtual due to the pandemic. And my presentation ended up being pre-recorded. While I have pretty mixed feelings about virtual conferences in general, pre-recording a talk does have the nice side-effect of preserving it so that it can be shared later.
So without further ado: Here is a version of that 20 minute talk! The focus is on the ways that data visualization can help to advance the virtues of ethics, efficiency, and transparency in clinical research. I think this argument is interesting (and sound) in its own right, but for regular readers of Prism Academy, it may also be interesting to see how our current work has grown and evolved from these ideas.
I hope you enjoy!
