Visualizing in the Information Age Gaining Insight Against Insurmountable Odds

SESSION: Graphics and Visualization Technologies

EVENT TYPE: HPC Interconnections, Broader Engagement

TIME: 3:30PM - 4:00PM


Presenter(s):Kelly Gaither


We are living in an age in which digital information makes up 90% of all information produced. In this digital age, we are struggling to manage the deluge of data, much less derive meaning and insight from it. Visualization has become an essential tool in scientific and information research, spanning many disciplines. As complexity and data size have scaled dramatically, so have the requirements for processing, managing, and storing the enormous amounts of data needed for visualization and analysis. In this talk, I will discuss why visualization provides such a powerful medium for analyzing, understanding and communicating the vast amounts of data being generated every day. I will show examples of visualization over the years and will discuss what the future will hold with so much of our everyday lives being permeated by digital data/information.
