The big talk in technology these days is big data. And a University of Utah professor has some ideas about how to make the flood of data now available into useful visual images.
Miriah Meyer, an assistant professor in the School of Computing at the University of Utah and a faculty member in the Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute, will deliver a lecture Wednesday on the visualization of data.
The 19th Annual William R. and Erlyn J. Gould Distinguished Lecture on Technology and the Quality of Life is set for noon at J. Willard Marriott Library, Gould Auditorium on the first level.
The talk will discuss how to design interactive visualizations and how scientists can use those tools to glean insight from complex data.
The event is free and open to the public. Parking is available at the visitor lot west of the library. For directions, see: http://www.lib.utah.edu/info/directions.php.
