DigiCatYorks welcomes co-founder of FlyingBinary and author of Mapping the Future Jacqui Taylor for a special event around data journalism and data visualisation.

In this session Jacqui will talk about data journalism and the science behind data visualisation, illustrating the uses of data using examples such as the classified data leaks by Edward Snowden in 2013.

With the release of a new data journalism book to a global audience of 34 million citizens and 3,000 data journalists, Jacqui will tell her data story from the beginning and share some of the projects her web science company have delivered, and the impact these have had across organisations, nations and globally.

Biography:  Jacqui has 25 years’ experience of deploying technology change across the world. After implementing a banking regulatory change programme with Web 3.0 tools she co-founded FlyingBinary a web science company which changes the world with data.

An appointment as an Independent Ministerial Advisor in Cabinet Office as an Open Data domain expert recognised her as a web scientist of influence in the era of Big Data and the Internet of Things (IoT). An inclusion as a data innovator for a number of the smart city initiatives signals the next steps as her company which was recognised in 2014 with an IoT international trailblazer award.

Jacqui collaborated with data journalism thought leaders to produce her first book “Mapping the Future “which signals the changes for the industry. Published in November by the Digital Enlightenment Forum Jacqui has contributed a chapter to the 2014 Yearbook relating her vision for the web and the role Open Data will play in the making of Open Policy. She is a member of the member of the British Standards Institute team working towards ISO eStandards for Smart Cities.
