Electronic Beats: This Fascinating Site Visualizes Random Techno Mixes In Real Time. “The internet is bursting with an overwhelming amount of amazing techno mixes, podcasts and radio channels. But for all their musical promise, online platforms are still lagging when it comes to visual accompaniment. A new website called ‘inward’ is hoping to change all that. It provides a non-stop psychedelic barrage of visuals synced in realtime to a curated selection of underground techno radio stations and Soundcloud mixes.” As you might expect, a lot of bright flashing/flickering lights on this site, so be warned.
Carnegie Mellon is developing a new tool to easily do visual analysis of large data sets. “Called Explorable Visual Analytics, or EVA, the tool uses a novel computer architecture that enables the analyst to explore raw data through dynamic visualizations with minimal time delay. It’s designed to help users make sense of ‘high-dimensional’ data — that is, data with lots of parameters.” And I mean big data sets: “To refine the design of EVA, the researchers have explored a multidimensional, 100-gigabyte database on the workforce from the U.S. Census Bureau’s Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics (LEHD) program.”
