    Presentation 2.0: automatic visualization of correlated information

Abstract:


    Microsoft PowerPoint is the world’s most popular tool for presenting information and therefore controversial. In paticular, Edward Tufte claimed that PowerPoint forces people to mutilate data beyond comprehension [Tufte-2003]. For example, the low resolution of a PowerPoint slide means that it usually contains only about 40 words, or barely eight seconds of reading. PowerPoint also encourages users to rely on bulleted lists, a ”faux analytical” technique, Tufte concluded, that dodges the speaker’s responsibility to tie his or her information together.
