The talk will also show how medical visualization can be used in knowledge dissemination in public spaces. By combining new medical visualization techniques with interactive multi-touch table technology and intuitive user interfaces visitors to science centers and museums can interactively explore the normally invisible and learn about the inside workings of the human body, exotic animals, natural history subjects or even mummies, such as the recent installation at the British Museum.
Professor Anders Ynnerman received a Ph.D. in physics from Gothenburg University. During the early 90s he was at Oxford University, UK, and Vanderbilt University, USA. From 1997 to 2002 he directed the Swedish National Supercomputer Centre and from 2002 to 2006 he directed the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC). Since 1999 he has held a chair in scientific visualization at Link?ping University and is the director of the Norrk?ping Visualization Center ? C.
Ynnerman is a member of the Swedish Royal Academy of Engineering Sciences and a board member of the Swedish Research Council. In 2007 Ynnerman was awarded the Akzo Nobel Science award and the Golden Mouse award for Swedish IT-person of the year. In 2009 he received the Athena Award for best medical clinical research in Sweden and in 2010 he received the Swedish Knowledge Award for dissemination of scientific knowledge to the public. In 2011 he received the IVA gold medal from the King of Sweden.
