in interactive high-performance visualization at the Geometric Modeling
and Scientific Visualization Center at KAUST. Interactive visualization
is crucial to exploring, analyzing, and understanding data, such as the
data acquired via computed tomography, electron microscopy, or seismic surveys, as well as simulated data, such as the result of fluid
simulations. However, the amount of data that is acquired or simulated
is increasing rapidly toward the petascale and further, which presents a
tremendous challenge to interactive visualization and analysis.
Our research focuses on interactive high-performance visualization
exploiting the parallel processing power of state-of-the-art GPUs
(Graphics Processing Units), which have evolved from graphics processing toward quite general, massively-parallel co-processors for a wide variety of applications. We will describe our research in this field, in the areas of neuroscience for visualization and analysis of petascale
electron microscopy data, interactive visualization and interpretation
of seismic data, and the visualization of very complex general grids
from computational fluid dynamics.
Research Seminar Announcement
In the course of the Visual Computing research seminar Dr. Evgeny Gladilin from the Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research (IPK) Gatersleben will give a talk with subsequent discussion about the topic Aufgaben der Bildanalyse in quantitativer Pflanzenforschung.
We would like to invite everyone interested to join us. The research seminar will take place in on Friday 21.04.2017, 13:00 c.t. in G29-R335.
