Challenge: Understanding big and complex data. Task: Finding patterns in voluminous amounts of information. Method: Representing and transforming big data visually and aurally. Advantage: Scientists and engineers working with data perceptually—as artists and composers do—using the same right-brain/left-brain creative processes that artists employ when creating a work of art. Action: Interactive visual and auditory representations of data, allowing researchers to experiment and to experience simulations in real time. Platform: The AlloSphere—one of the largest multi-dimensional display devices in the world for multi-modal data representation.
