"Natural Language, Ask Data, and Other Tableau Stories" by Vidya Setlur (Tableau Software)

Natural language processing has garnered interest in helping people interact with computer systems to make sense and meaning of the world. In the area of visual analytics, natural language has proven to help improve the overall cognition of a visualization task to the user. In this talk, with a sampling of research and engineering projects at Tableau, I will discuss how natural language can be leveraged in various aspects of the analytical workflow ranging from smarter data transformations, visual encodings to asking questions of one's data.
