Data visualization is often overlooked by people working with data and/or modeling but can in fact reveal very useful insight into problems at hand. R is an open-source programming language for statistical computing and graphics with increasing popularity among practitioners in data science and machine learning in recent years. The "ggplot2" package in R, in particular, provides very powerful, intuitive and versatile tools for data visualization. An overview of these tools will be presented in this talk accompanied by a live demo.
