• Reference Materials
The electronic version of this book is available from the Eurographics Digital Library at http://diglib.eg.org
• Selected papers from the literature on
– Algorithmic Analytics, Visualization and Computer Human Interaction.
– Data Ethics, Privacy, Security, Sharing, Provenance
Students in this class will become proficient with the major techniques and systems for algorithmic data analysis, exploration, visualization, interaction and summarization. A competitive group project will be completed that incorporates all the major facets of computer-human interface development.
Objective: Expose and train students in all the facets of computer-user interface development
Guiding evaluation principles will be: the “value” of the extracted information from a variety of data sets at different scales, the methods and models used, interface interactivity, and the final application usefulness.
