Congratulations to Hamish on receiving IEEE Vis’ Test of Time award last week. It was awarded for this 2004 paper Simplifying Flexible Isosurfaces Using local Geometric Measures (alt). The IEEE VIS Test of Time Award is an accolade given to recognize articles published at previous conferences whose contents are still vibrant and useful today and have had…
The group submitted a successful NVIDIA Data Science GPU grant and received a Titan V card today. Tom plans on using it for an upcoming project into ML texture synthesis for urban environments (and only occasionally use it for gaming).
The Alan Turing Institute (ATI) Visualization interest group (VizTIG) had their 1st Annual Symposium last Friday (13th Sep). The programme was packed full of interesting talks, including one on Topological analysis of data (Hamish Carr) and another on Visualizing data profiles and analysis pipelines (Roy Ruddle).
A full house from industry and academia spent 3 hours engrossed in the intricacies of analysing car parking fines, on this CPD course that was organised and delivered by Roy Ruddle, in collaboration with Tableau. The training was part of the 1st Annual Symposium of the Alan Turing Institute’s Visualization interest group (VizTIG).
it was our pleasure to welcome future students to our open days last week. VCG put in a strong showing with student projects, research demos, and a our of faculty on had to discuss our HPG courses! Photos follow.
We are excited to be part of the launch of a new initiative across the university to spearhead research into the use of immersive technologies – CIT. Immersive technologies is an umbrella term for virtual reality, augment reality, simulators, video games, and everything in between. Our very own Prof. Roy was on hand to introduce us…
