This is the talk I given at the data+visual meeting in London in Aug 2016
The paper is accepted by the VAST 2016 conference!
The paper introduced a new tool called SenseMap that help users with online sensemaking for daily tasks such as find a camera, book a holiday, etc.
This is a very large project funded by the European Commission, with about 20 partners and 100 personnel in many EU countries. The goal is to develop the next generation visual analytics system to address the Big Data challenges in the policing and criminal intelligence analysis.
A data visualisation project to address the data quality and lineage issues in sensemaking using provenance, using the TimeSet technique.
This year, the Visual Analytics challenge organised by the IEEE VAST (Visual Analytics Science & Technology) conference again had a mini-challenge on Twitter data, and it is (near) real-time this time. The task is to monitor the Twitter feed and provide (near) real-time updates on important events that are happening and find information related to a suspected kidnapping.
Our entry won a ‘Honorable Mention for Effective Support for Analytic Sensemaking’, a step away from getting an award. You can see the system working in the demo video below (best in full screen with sound on).
