The Objective
A scientific article is chosen by the editor to be highlighted in communications and on the editor's website.
A specific graph or set of data will be redesigned to present the core message of the article. The aim is then to summarize the article's data in one image.

This article focuses on how susceptible various domestic tasks are to automation, according to experts.
The image should present the data for each domestic task: their possible automation in 5 years and in 10 years.
AI could induce an evolution of our domestic sphere through automation of specific tasks. The article presents experts' predictions in 5 years and in 10 years. For clarity, a small icon could present each activity for simplicity.
17 domestic tasks are presented and there are data for 5-years and 10-years predictions.
Data should be simple to read and values should be easy to compare between different activities.
On the editor's website, illustrations are presented with a vertical format to increase readability, especially on different types of screens (i.e. tablets and phones).
To compare these results, a vertical bar graph is appropriate, especially due to big standard deviations (elongated bars).
For this illustration, a light background is chosen to evocate something neat or clean (which seems appropriate for domestic activities such as household cleaning, laundry or dish washing).
