Coffee & Viz — Enhancing Visualization of Storm Surge Guidance

October 19 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am
Teaching and Visualization lab, James B. Hunt Library, 1070 Partners Way
Raleigh, NC 27606 United States
+ Google Map

Coastal emergency managers use storm surge model forecasts as a critical tool for planning and decision making during storm events. These models must be both accurate and fast to provide reliable information in a timely manner as a storm moves toward the coast. Casey Dietrich, assistant professor in the Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering, will discuss the development of an enhanced storm surge modeling process that incorporates high-resolution datasets and visualization techniques to produce more accurate storm surge…

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

October 30 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Biltmore Conference Room, 100 Europa Drive, Suite 540
Chapel Hill, NC 27517 United States
+ Google Map

Abstract: 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…

Coffee & Viz — Modeling the Chemical Space

November 16 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am
Teaching and Visualization lab, James B. Hunt Library, 1070 Partners Way
Raleigh, NC 27606 United States
+ Google Map

There are as many potential drug-like chemicals as stars in the whole universe. Synthesizing and testing all those compounds experimentally is impossible. Denis Fourches, assistant professor of Chemistry in NC State’s College of Sciences, will discuss the rise of cheminformatics and artificial intelligence to model, visualize, and virtually screen those chemicals for various applications in drug discovery, chemical risk assessment, and green chemistry.
