AEDO: Making data meaningful
Aedo symbolizes the effort to develop a system that produces self-explanatory data visualizations, focused not on the repre-sentation of numbers but on their meaning. Via random selections of datasets, the application can build tales based on the data, uncovering in a visual and narrative way the stories behind the numbers, and giving a solid context to understand their meaning.
