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.
