Edward Tufte is a statistician and artist, and Professor Emeritus of Political Science, Statistics, and Computer Science at Yale University. He wrote, designed, and self-published 4 classic books on data visualization. The New York Times described ET as the "Leonardo da Vinci of data," and Bloomberg as the "Galileo of graphics." He is now completing a book Meaning, Space, Models, Data, Truth, and constructing a 234-acre tree farm and sculpture park in northwest Connecticut, which will show his artworks and remain open space in perpetuity. He founded Graphics Press, ET Modern Gallery/Studio, and Hogpen Hill Farms.

A new, widely-adopted method for presentations: meetings are smarter, more effective, 20% shorter.
Fundamental design strategies for all information displays: sentences, tables, diagrams, maps, charts, images, video, data visualizations, and randomized displays for making graphical statistical inferences.
New ideas on spectatorship, consuming reports. How to assess the credibility
of a presentation and its presenter, how to detect cherry-picking, how to reason
about alternative explanations.
Standards of comparison for workaday and for cutting edge visualizations.
How to identify excellent information architectures and use them as models
and comparison sets for your own work and for the work of your contractors.
Monitoring the designs of others.
The future of information displays: 4K, 6K, 8K video maps moving in time.
Practical examples are from everywhere: science, social science, music, business, finance, sports, art, medicine, architecture, NASA, government reports.
Edward Tufte teaches the entire course.
Each student receives all four ET books on information design:
"One visionary day....the insights of this class lead to new levels of understanding both for creators and viewers of visual displays." WIRED
