The military has a clear picture of the force it would like to field in the coming decades and this image has a single prevailing theme: the integration of manned and unmanned units. The addition of unmanned units will decrease the danger soldiers face in direct combat, and the DoD (Department of Defense) road map calls for an immediate and sustained increase in the use of unmanned units, starting with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) (2002).

Graphics technology has extended medical imaging tools to the hands of surgeons and doctors, far beyond the radiology suite. However, a common issue in most medical imaging software is the complexity for non-radiologists to access the patient’s information. Therefore, the Isis project was started to research the area of building medical imaging software for non-radiologists. Click here to read more
- Self Organizing Map
Today’s mechanical design industry is becoming increasingly complex due to many factors including, but not limited to budget cuts and higher performance expectations. When attempting to design for new objectives, designers must first understand the scope of the problem, and understand the design from an analytical standpoint.
However, often problems are becoming so complex that this is not possible without the assistance of computer simulation and modeling. Due to human visual capabilities, data visualization has become a commonly used technique to forgo some of the problems introduced by this growing data complexity.
SOMViz (Self-Organizing Map Visualization) is an application giving designers and engineers the ability to extract characteristics and trends of high-dimensional data using a directly interpretable 2D visualization of what would otherwise be impossible for a human to cognitively make sense of.
