“A basic scatter plot usually does the job for me …. No one wants my upsell on the idea…maybe visualization is our hope to help with machine learning interpretability/understandability…”
This episode of the data skeptic, which I found on RudderStacks’s summer reading list, I really enjoyed. I recently sat down to write up a few lessons of product management I had learned the last couple of years, and one that came up is a “visualizations first/GUIs first” approach to data product management.
Because you simply can neither touch, nor see data, the best you can do is to give people something that they can see or feel. With that in mind, I try to do the products/features I do with a draft of a GUI first, even if I don’t intend on building a GUI at all. Because the visual story matters. This episode is kind of about that, so check it out.
