A textual visualization that analyzes and presents beer review data to allow users to find a beer that meets their tastes.
Shimi is a smart-phone enabled robotic musical companion that can respond to and enhance your musical experiences. Developed in collaboration with Media Innovation Lab at IDC Herzliya, Shimi is controlled by an Android phone utilizing its built in sensing and music generation capabilities. This allows easy development of additional custom mobile apps. The first application developed for Shimi, allows the robot to listen to and analyze rhythms played by humans, and respond by choosing songs similar beat and tempo from the phone music library.
Visualizations can help amplify human cognition. In an era where networks are becoming increasingly complex, the desirability of tools to compare and contrast sets, relationships, and reach is significant. Motivated by a practical need articulated by corporate decision makers, this research presents our journey in designing and implementing bicentric diagrams, a novel graph-based set visualization technique. A bicentric diagram enables simultaneous identification of sets, set relationships, and set member reach in integrated ego networks of two focal entities.
