Brownbag: Mapping Historical Cultural Production

Join us for a discussion about data visualization and the challenges of mapping unwieldy data. Pantheon* is a project developed by the Macro Connections group at The MIT Media Lab that has been collecting, analyzing, and visualizing data on historical cultural popularity and production.

We're thrilled to have Cesar Hidalgo, head of the Macro Connections group, stop by our Mountain View office where he'll talk about cultural production and how it's measured, the biases and limitations of Pantheon's methodology and the challenges of visualizing these metrics.
