Using the CrowdSignals Data
Vidya will use the CrowdSignals data as new source for work on semantic visualization.
"This project will be extremely valuable to a lot of people whether it's small scale - single users, or a company.
[...] It would be extremely valuable if the entire data can be collected from a community and then shared, given back to
the community - and coming up with those clever ways of empowering the user with his information."
- Vidya Setlur, Research Scientist, Tableau Software
