Ben Shneiderman Distinguished Lecture
Monday, 11 June 2012 at 16:00 (BST)
Swansea, United Kingdom
Information Visualization for Knowledge Discovery
4pm, Monday 11th June, 2012 – Taliesin Theatre, Swansea University
Ben Shneiderman, Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Founding Director (1983-2000) of the Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory at the University of Maryland, discusses Information Visualisation for Knowledge Discovery.
Interactive information visualization tools provide researchers with remarkable capabilities to support discovery. These telescopes for high-dimensional data combine powerful statistical methods with user-controlled interfaces. Users can begin with an overview, zoom in on areas of interest, filter out unwanted items, and then click for details-on-demand. With careful design and efficient algorithms, the dynamic queries approach to data exploration can provide 100msec updates even for million-item visualizations that can represent billion-record databases.
This talk reviews the growing commercial success stories such as spotfire.tibco.com, and smartmoney.com/map-of-the-market, plus emerging products such as hivegroup.com and centrifugesystems.com will be covered.
The central theme is the integration of statistics with visualization as applied for time series data such as cs.umd.edu/hcil/timesearcher, temporal event sequences such as electronic health records (cs.umd.edu/hcil/lifelines2 and cs.umd.edu/hcil/lifeflow), and social network data (cs.umd.edu/hcil/socialaction and codeplex.com/nodexl).
The event is free to attend and open to all. Refreshments will be served after the lecture.
