Our society is based on “stories” that are the basis for the way we communicate, live and dream. In the introduction to the lecture, a short section of technology development will be elaborated with a special focus on EDU / government / business (learning by doing) and data science, as well as advanced visualization. We will describe and conduct a characteristic data science project and show some techniques related to the big data infrastructure, and the way we use mathematical rules for various activities in the phases of these projects. In the lecture, through a practical view, we plan to show how to use data and advanced visualization tools combined with large data sets to gain content and the way we can tell the story with the help of this content.
