Dr. Tom Torsney-Weir, Swansea University
Visualizing multi-dimensional spaces
October 30th, 2019, 3:30 p.m. CET
Room: Science Park Building 3, Room 063
I will discuss work on visualization techniques for understanding machine learning models, numerical simulations, multi-objective optimization, and function spaces. This diverse set of application areas can be abstracted under the name "multi-dimensional spaces." These are spaces typically between 4 and 20 dimensions where the dimensions have specific semantic meaning. In this talk I will discuss the available challenges and recent solutions to visually understanding these multi-dimensional spaces on a 2D screen.
About the Speaker:
Tom is currently a Lecturer at Swansea University. His research interests are in visualizing multi-dimensional continuous spaces. He completed his PhD at the University of Vienna, MS in computer science from Simon Fraser University in 2012, and his BS in computer science from Georgetown University in 2002. His other projects include interactive visualization systems for understanding complex computer simulations and programming language design.
