Solving High Dimensional Clustering Challenges in VR
In cooperation with the DataXR meetup, we're excited to invite you to an awesome event. This event will be your opportunity to try newest version of GraphXR, the VR-based Neo4j browser by Kineviz. Stick around for panel discussion with the founders of DataVizVR, Dynamoid & life sciences innovation expert Oliver Crespo. Please RSVP here: ## From medicine to manufacturing, VR is emerging as a powerful tool for the visualization of high dimensional data. One use case that is yielding early successes is cluster analysis. Join us for a discussion of the trends, challenges, and opportunities in this space. Speakers will include: LAURA LYNN GONZALEZ Laura Lynn Gonzalez has been building 3D worlds based on scientific datasets for most of her career, from her early work producing planetarium shows, to designing and developing an award-winning science app, Powers of Minus Ten. Over the last few years she has been the core developer for the VR data visualization platform, COSM, due to launch in spring 2018. Laura Lynn owns and operates a small science visualization company, Dynamoid, based in Oakland, CA.
