Neuroinformatics.nl Workshop on Predictive Neuroinformatics...
This course will focus on methods for visualizing large collections of multivariate data (numbers, symbols), textual data, and multimedia data (images, video) to reveal patterns and gain new insights into massive, dynamic, ambiguous, and sometimes conflicting data. Students will also learn to detect the expected and to discover the unexpected. Students will learn how analytical reasoning is facilitated by interactive visual interfaces with diverse applications in science and business and how the results are effectively communicated, by studying literature, by critically evaluating existing visualizations and by designing and developing their own models. Special emphasis will also be placed on techniques that are optimally geared towards the qualities and limitations of the human perceptual system.
