Astronomical Medicine and Beyond: Visualization Challenges and Solutions Across Sciences

Presenter: Michelle Borkin, Harvard University
When: February 5, 2013 12PM PST

What can help enable both the treatment of heart disease and the discovery of newborn stars? Visualization. Specifically interdisciplinary data visualization, the sharing and co-development of tools and techniques across the imaging sciences. In this talk I will share sample results from my own research and experience crossing disciplines and bringing together the knowledge and experts of astrophysics, computer science, computational physics, radiology and medicine. I will present new visualization techniques and tools inspired by this work for the astronomical community including Glue, a new Python package for interactive real-time linked visualization of multi-dimensional data.
