This episode is sponsored by the CIO Innovation Insider Offense and Defense Community.

My guest this week is Scott Berinato, author of Good Charts: The HBR Guide to Making Smarter, More Persuasive Data Visualizations, and Senior Editor at Harvard Business Review.

In this interview we discuss bridging the world of data science and the art of data visualization. Scott and I focus on how we make good use of Data Visualization skills that I believe are critical for CIOs to have.

Listen to the interview to learn more on how to be a better data visualization guy and methods of being a good data storyteller.

Major Take-Aways From This Episode:

  • Why to avoid “click+vis”
  • The importance of incorporating prototyping, sketching, and charting your data visualizations
  • The key to presenting data is not the data or the perfect design, it is the design thinking process
  • Automatic output of data tools is not enough to convey your ideas
  • How to overcome obstacles with conveying ideas + concepts; How to avoid being intimidated
  • Tools Landscape: plot.ly and exploratory
  • The idea of “the power of a beautiful constraint”
  • What you barely need is data; you need to know what the data is telling you (@23:00)
  • When are you putting yourself at a disadvantage with DOT plots
  • It isn’t the slide quota that is important for your presentation, it is the amount of information on a slide that is important
  • Best Methods for Visual Storytelling:
  1. Maximum one or two ideas per slide
  2. Wrong Metric: The number of slides
  3. Correct Metric: Ideas per visual field/ slide

In this week's interview Raj shares his passion for the Security Industry and his ways of diving deep into his craft.

My guest this week is Matthew Markus, co-founder and CEO of Pembient.

We discuss digital biology, cellular agriculture, 3D printing, security of species, big visions, entrepreneurship and envisioning a world without wildlife poaching and the destruction of species.

What does it take to disrupt the illegal trade of animals and envision a world that has an increasing population of rhinos?

Pembient is leveraging advances in biotechnology to fabricate wildlife products, such as rhino horn and elephant ivory, at prices below the levels that induce poaching. Their goal is to replace the illegal wildlife trade, a $20B black market, and the fourth largest after drug, arms, and human trafficking, with sustainable commerce.

About Matthew Markus

Matthew is Co-founder and CEO of Pembient, a company biofabricating wildlife products. A serial entrepreneur, Matthew has 15 years of startup experience. His past ventures include PrivacyBank.com, an internet company that was acquired by InfoSpace (now NASDAQ: BCOR). Matthew’s passion presently lies with the emerging animal replacement industry, of which Pembient is a part. Pembient seeks to stop the poaching of, and prevent the farming of, iconic species. Chief among these is the rhinoceros, whose horn is prized as a carving material. Pembient uses the tools of biotechnology to create biofabricated horn that has the same molecular structure as horn produced by a rhinoceros. The company has been featured on CNN, TechCrunch, and The Guardian. Via Pembient, Matthew is a graduate of IndieBio, the world’s first biotech accelerator. Additionally, he holds a B.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and a Masters of Engineering Management, as well as an M.S. in Genetic Epidemiology, from Washington University in St. Louis.
