Description

As interactive technologies, such as apps, installations, and multimedia presentations become pervasive in everyday life, more and more computer scientists, engineers, and technology experts acknowledge the influence that exists beyond visual explanations.

Computational Solutions for Knowledge, Art, and Entertainment: Information Exchange Beyond Text focuses on methods for depicting knowledge-based concepts in order to assert power beyond a visual explanation of scientific and computational notions. Combining formal descriptions with graphical presentations, this video lecture encourages viewers to interact by creating visual solutions for science-related concepts and data presentation. This video is an ideal educational resource for researchers, computer scientists, and academics focusing on the integration of science, technology, computing, art, and mathematics for visual problem solving.

Topics Covered

  • Collaborative Computing
  • Communication through Art
  • Interactive Learning
  • Virtual Systems in Social Networking
  • Visual Translation
  • Visualization Techniques
