Michela Ledwidge, Founder & CEO @ Mod Grapho inventor Michela describes her vision for using graphs as a presenter. “I was inspired by Al Gore’s Climate Change film An Inconvenient Truth and asked myself, “What if I had my own virtual world instead of a slide deck?” Grapho is a developer framework for graph storytelling that is designed for Extended Reality (XR) applications, made by Sydney studio Mod and is available for licensing. Mod hopes Grapho can help folks get a handle on data that is most important to them. https://www.linkedin.com/in/michela/
