Big Data Visual Analytics
Event date:  July 1, 2016 2:00 PM  to 3:00 PM

Talk Abstract:

The growth of digital data is tremendous. Any aspect of life and matter is being recorded and stored on cheap disks, either in the cloud, in businesses, or in research labs. We can now afford to explore very complex relationships with many variables playing a part. But for this we need powerful tools that allow us to be creative, to sculpt this intricate insight formulated as models from the raw block of data. High-quality visual feedback plays a decisive role here. In this talk I will discuss various platforms we have developed over the years to make the exploration of large multivariate data more intuitive and direct. These platforms were conceived in tight collaborations with domain experts in the fields of climate science, health informatics, and computer systems.
