SPEAKERS: Russ Burtner & Nick Cramer
Through LAS’ new and emerging collaborative partnership with PNNL, we are excited to welcome Russ Burtner (PNNL Technical Group Manager – Visual Analytics Group) and Nick Cramer (PNNL Lead for Immersive Analytics) to LAS on Wednesday, February 21 to present some of their research and thoughts on the current state and future of VR/AR analytics and information visualization.
The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) has a long history of information visualization research leading to high-impact tools for its customers. The success of PNNL’s information visualization software and publications in top visualization journals and conference proceedings are the results of PNNL researchers’ dedication to helping people make sense of massive amounts of complex data.
Visual analytics draws from information visualization and scientific visualization with a focus on analytical reasoning facilitated by interactive visual interfaces. PNNL’s visual analytics team makes big, complex data useful through skillful visual design, compelling interaction, sound analytic methods, and solid engineering. This team of researchers, user experience specialists, software developers, and subject matter experts invents new visual metaphors, creates analysis algorithms, and delivers software products that put powerful visual analytics capabilities into users’ hands. The team collaborates with experts across the laboratory and around the world—including statisticians, machine vision experts, modelers, and domain scientists—to solve its customers’ hardest analysis challenges.
As we continue to explore opportunities for engagement with PNNL researchers, scientists, and engineers, this WRM will provide an open forum to discuss an emerging field of interest across our partner community. We look forward to seeing you there!
