Liz Marai is an associate professor of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Her research interests go from visual-system related problems that can be robustly solved through automation, to problems that require human experts in the computational loop, and the principles behind this work. Marai's research has been recognized by multiple prestigious awards, including: a Test of Time award from the International Society for Computational Biology, and several Outstanding Paper awards, along with her students; an NSF CAREER Award and multiple NSF awards; and several multi-site NIH R01 awards as a lead investigator. She has co-authored scientific open-source software adopted by thousands of users, and she is a patent co-author, whose algorithms have been embedded in a medical device.
"Immersive Analytics Lessons from the Electronic Visualization Laboratory"
The Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL) at the University of Illinois Chicago has been at the forefront of virtual reality research since 1992, when it introduced the CAVE automatic virtual environment, the first projection based virtual reality system in the world. Since then, the laboratory has developed a wide range of immersive systems and technologies to be used for visualization and visual analysis tasks. These technologies have paved the way for the resurgence in virtual reality in the past few years, and for the emergence of immersive analytics, which investigates how new interaction and display technologies can be used to support analytical reasoning by immersing the users in data. In this talk, I will describe our lab’s endeavors to address immersive analytics challenges related to limited image resolution and the lack of VR integration with a client’s typical analysis workflow. I will summarize the challenges and the lessons learned from recent EVL projects, as well as some of the opportunities ahead for the field of immersive analytics. This is joint work with Andrew Johnson and Jason Leigh.
