SXSW 2016

Once a year the worlds of tech and music converge in a celebration of all things cool  hip  and innovative. South by Southwest is one of the most important tech events in the United States. Last year  this popular festival received more than 3 500 entries - making panel selection a really competitive process.

It is with great pleasure that CartoDB announces our three submitted panels for SXSW Interactive PanelPicker!

Our co-founder  Segio Alvarez along with Nicolas Belmonte from Uber  Eliot Van Buskirk from Spotify and Jer Thorp from The Office for Creative Research  will be discussing big data and its impact on the human psyche in the proposed panel  The Effect of Big Data on Human Behavior.

Andrew Hill presents an impressive disccusion on how data design and analytics are shaping our world in the suggested panel: How Your Data Can And Will Transform The World.

CartoDB’s Aurelia Moser will explore how time sensitive maps can provide insights into our past and future in the proposed session Mapping Spacetime: Time Travel via Timeless Maps.
