        • AndersYnnerman, Demo: Uniview - Scaling the Universe


          from SCI Institute Added

          The Uniview software originates from a collaboration between the American Museum of Natural History in New York and Linköping University in Sweden. Uniview presents a consistent view of the universe at multiple scales and renders images of curated measured astronomical data from multiple sources. It is possible to travel from the surface of the earth, visit the International Space Station, fly by planets and moons (even land on Mars) and continue out into the milky way and other galaxies and continue all the way to the origin of the universe. In this presentation we will be using the remote steering capability of Uniview and the pilots will be located in Norrköping, Sweden. After more than 10 years of software and data development Uniview is used in hundreds of planetariums worldwide to support interactive shows as well as serving as a tool for rendering of playback shows. Uniview is licensed by the Swedish company Sciss AB.

              • Presentation for the Engineering Scholars Program


                from SCI Institute Added

                November 15, 2011 Introduction to the SCI Institute - Rob Macleod (15 min) The Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute is a permanent research institute at the University of Utah. Directed by Professor Chris Johnson, the Institute is now home to over 165 faculty, students, and staff. The faculty, drawn primarily from the School of Computing and the Department of Bioengineering, is noted for its breadth of collaborations both nationally and internationally. Overview of Biophysical Electrocardiography - Dafang Wang (10 min) Electrocardiology studies the electrical activities of the heart, and is the fundamental basis of the diagnosis and treatment of heart problems. The growing computing power has significantly promoted the detection and understanding of the mechanism of the heart for medical scientists. This talk will give an overview of this interdisciplinary research, which involves medicine, physics, mathematics and computer science. I will describe the research pipeline of electrocardiology, including clinical experiments, modeling and simulation, data visualization, and validation/interpretation of the results. The integration of these steps represents the cutting-edge progress in cardiac studies. Computing and Visualizing the Electric Fields of the Heart - Darrell Swenson (10 min) Computer models and visualizations have the ability to help doctors diagnose and treat heart disease. Software tools here at the SCI institute are currently being used to treat and research various heart disorders ranging from defibrillation in children to diagnosing early stages of ischemia. Scientific Insight with SCIRun - Kedar Aras (10 min) SCIRun is a Problem Solving Environment (PSE), for modeling, simulation and visualization of scientific problems. SCIRun is a freely available open source software package used to enable solutions to problems affecting various aspects of human life in the disciplines of biomedicine, geophysics, combustion, molecular dynamics, fluid dynamics, and atmospheric dispersion. Overview of ImageVis3D - Tom Fogal (10 min) The goal of the ImageVis3D development is to visualize three-dimensional rasterized data. The program provides users with streamlined access to the extensive volume visualization capabilities available from tools developed within the SCI Institute. The main design goals of ImageVis3D are: simplicity, scalability, interactivity, and unprecedented levels of flexibility. The Golden Age of Supercomputing Movie (5 min) Chris Johnson takes you on a visionary journey through the exciting territory of High Performance Computing, Science and Visualization. He reveals how Visualization tools are opening new worlds to scientists, and illustrates how top Computer Scientists, Neurosurgeons and Physicists are working together to solve problems that could not have been solved before.

                    from SCI Institute Added

                    In this talk I will summaries some of our previous and current activities in big data visualization. I will talk about the visualization of space-time fields, physical quantities that are structured in space and evolve in time, with a focus on techniques that enable interactive visual exploration of such fields. Key to interactivity is the use of regular grid structures, in combination with level-of-detail representations, data compression, and GPU volume ray-casting. I will demonstrate the power of this combination in various applications, ranging from scientific visualization to previewing systems for visual effects. For fields that are not structured on regular grids but on scattered point sets or triangle meshes, I will discuss possibilities for restructuring.
