We are very happy to announce Roy Ruddle as our next guest speaker. Roy is a Reader in Interactive Systems, and a member of the Visualization and Virtual Reality research group at the University of Leeds.
WHEN: June 18th, 14h00
WHERE: M203 (the function room next to Murray’s restaurant), Wellcome Trust Genome Campus, Hinxton
TITLE: Navigation in information spaces, and using giga-pixel displays to visualize biological data
ABSTRACT: This talk will be in three parts: (1) Summarising what we know about how people navigate in a familiar information space (an organisation’s intranet), (2) Explaining current research which is applying “giga-pixel” (large, ultra-high resolution) displays for the visualization of microscope slides (e.g., for the diagnosis of cancer funded by the NHS, and EPSRC/Wellcome), and (3) Outlining how giga-pixel displays could bring major benefits when bioinformatics data are being analysed.
ABOUT: Roy Ruddle has a PhD in psychology, is professionally a computer scientist and is a Reader in Interactive Systems in the School of Computing at the University of Leeds. He has been researching navigation and interactive visualization for 15 years, and currently focuses on Powerwall (“gigapixel”) displays and navigation in information spaces.
