Presentation

Overview

The ability to collect, store, and manage data is increasing quickly, but our ability to understand it remains constant. In an attempt to gain better understanding of data, fields such as information visualization, data mining and graphic design are employed, each solving an isolated part of the specific problem, but failing in a broader sense: there are too many unsolved problems in the visualization of complex data. As a solution, this talk proposes that the individual fields be brought together as part of a singular process titled Computational Information Design, using examples from several years of work, including more recent research in understanding the human genome. The experiments are developed using Processing, a programming language and environment built for the electronic arts and visual design communities.
