Explore and Understand your Data and Algorithms with Interactive 3D and 2D Jupyter Widgets

November 6, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


The Jupyter Notebook has transformed data science with a browser
interface that combines live code, equations, visualizations, and
descriptive text. In this talk, a cutting-edge tool is presented,
itk-jupyter-widgets, to interactively explore your data and the
behavior of your algorithms. By leveraging the high-performance
rendering capabilities of modern web browsers, cross-platform 3D
visualization, without software installation, is possible. Novel
techniques will be described that enable interactive visualization of
remotely hosted big data.

Presenter Bio

Matthew McCormick, PhD, is a research software engineer who helps
scientists perform computational image analysis for reproducible
research. Currently, Dr. McCormick is a Principal Engineer at Kitware,
where he curates the Insight Toolkit (ITK). ITK began in 1999 to
support analysis of The National Institute of Health (NIH) Visible
Human Project. The toolkit forms the basis for numerous commercial
products and university image analysis courses taught in the United
States and around the world, studied by students who seek to apply
computational and mathematical methods to advance open science.
