Complex data can be difficult to visualize and analyze. Working in cross-functional teams also adds a layer of complexity to making decisions from big data analysis. The CAVE Lab uses interactive visualization to improve data visibility, data analysis, and decision making for supply chain and logistics challenges.
Together with MIT CTL’s corporate partners, the lab can be leveraged as an interactive decision-making space. By co-developing interactive visual analytics applications addressing specific, data-driven decision problems of our partners and presenting them in a way that optimally leverages human perception and cognition, we aim to promote the effective future use of data and analytics by corporate decision-makers at all levels.
Corporate engagement with the lab can be based on dedicated research and development projects and may entail interactive decision making and data analytics workshops with employees, customers, suppliers, or peers of the sponsoring partner at the lab.
