Press release: http://www.aalto.fi/en/current/news/2017-04-05-002/ Project page: http://userinterfaces.aalto.fi/scatterplot_optimization/ Algorithms can now exploit models and measures of human perception to generate scatterplot designs. Picture represents scatterplot of pressure and temperature variables from the Hurricane Isabel dataset. The standard design (left) loses fidelity and requires manual adjustment, but the optimized design (right) automatically adapts to the data.
In the first week of February we have two distinguished speakers visiting University of Helsinki and Aalto University: Rosalind Picard from MIT Media Lab and Hans Gellersen from University of Lancester
AMiner (aminer.org) recognized Antti as among the “Most Influential Scholar” in the field of HCI. The list is conferred in recognition of outstanding technical achievements with lasting contribution and impact to the research community.
