Finding correlations in complex datasets   5 comments

It is now almost three years since I moved to Boston to start working at Fathom Information Design and the Sabeti Lab at Harvard. As I noted back then, one of the goals of this work was to create new tools for exploring complex datasets -mainly of epidemiological and health data- which could potentially contain up to thousands of different variables. After a process that went from researching visual metaphors suitable to explore these kind of datasets interactively, learning statistical techniques that can be used to quantify general correlations (not necessarily linear or between numerical quantities), and going over several iterations of internal prototypes, we finally released the 1.0 version of a tool called “Mirador” (spanish word for lookout), which attempts to bridge the space between raw data and statistical modeling. Please jump to the Mirador’s homepage to access the software and its user manual, and continue reading below for some more details about the development and design process.

Moving towards Processing 2.0   5 comments

A few weeks ago, the Processing project started the transition to the 2.0 branch with the release of the first alpha package. Today, the second alpha is out (2.0a2), and available from the downloads section in the Google code page of the project, for the Linux, Mac and Windows platforms. The most important changes for this alpha release consist in several improvements in the new video library, and better support for 64 bits within the Processing environment and in exported applications. Follow this link for more detailed release notes, and keep reading below for some additional information about the video library included in Processing 2.0.

GLGraphics 0.9.4   24 comments

The version 0.9.4 of the GLGraphics library is available for download. This release is very significant because it incorporates a number of improvements and fixes suggested over the last few months by users of the library (enhanced Cg and GLSL shader support is one of such improvements), and also because this is the last release before the integration with the ongoing work I’m doing in the 3D renderer for Processing Android. For a full list of changes, fixes and issues please take a look at the release notes.
