EPIC Lecture: Painting with Code and Immersive Virtual Measurement & Analytics
Next meetup will feature creative live coding (presented by Tomasz) and invited lecture by Wes Griffin from NIST, USA After talks, we all will move to Expended Perception and Interaction Centre, for small nibbles and HPC Visualisation demos.
Make sure to RSVP, and invite your friends to join our meetup.
Title: Painting with Code
Abstract: Creative live coding.
Title: Application Creation for an Immersive Virtual Measurement and Analysis Laboratory
Abstract: Content creation for realtime interactive systems is a difficult problem. In game development, content creation pipelines are a major portion of the code base and content creation is a major portion of the budget. In research environments, the choice of rendering and simulation systems is frequently driven by the need for easy to use content authoring tools. In visualization, this problem is compounded by the widely varying types of data that users desire to visualize. We present a content creation framework incorporated into our visualization system that enables measurement and quantitative analysis tasks in both desktop and immersive environments on diverse input data sets.
Bio: Wesley Griffin is a Computer Scientist in the High Performance Computing and Visualization Group of the Applied and Computational Mathematics Division of the Information Technology Laboratory at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). He currently works on realtime interactive systems both at the infrastructure level and at visualization creation of scientific data produced at NIST. He earned his PhD in Computer Science from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County in 2016.
