Devoted to her Italian roots, Giorgia represents a “Data Renaissance” where she uses data to tell human stories. She will share her work in data visualization and infographics for clients including IBM, Google, Microsoft, the Gates Foundation, the United Nations and her work is part of the permanent collection at the MoMA.

Giorgia Lupi’s presentation introduces a larger discussion on technology which will take place over the next two days at Digifest with the theme Hello Tomorrow: Our Creative Cities.
