Exceptional tools for information visualization are becoming more widely
used to gain competitive advantages, but the best is yet to come. The
next generation of interactive tools will enable communities of users to
make 
successful business decisions even more rapidly. Advances to look for
include:

1) systematic strategies for discovery that incorporate the increasingly
powerful statistical tools and data mining methods, while accommodating
missing and uncertain data.
2) increasingly diverse data types such as time series, patient
histories, maps, and social networks, so users can handle a wider array
of problems.
3) tighter integration into organizational workflows that amplify
individual creativity with the catalytic benefits of social creativity.

These ambitious aspirations are already motivating researchers and
inspiring developers. This webcast tours current efforts and proposes
grand challenges.
