Visualization Tool for Environmental Sensing and Public Health Data

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D9ScsApTaGs To assist residents affected by oil and gas development, public health professionals in a non-profit organization have collected community data, including symptoms, air quality, and personal stories. However, the organization was unable to aggregate and visualize these data computationally. We present the Environmental Health Channel, an interactive web-based tool for visualizing environmental sensing and … Continue reading Visualization Tool for Environmental Sensing and Public Health Data

Smell Pittsburgh: Community-Empowered Mobile Smell Reporting System

Featured

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aOPyPfjJhBs Urban air pollution has been linked to various human health considerations, including cardiopulmonary diseases. Communities who suffer from poor air quality often rely on experts to identify pollution sources due to the lack of accessible tools. Taking this into account, we developed Smell Pittsburgh, a system that enables community members to report odors and … Continue reading Smell Pittsburgh: Community-Empowered Mobile Smell Reporting System

Community-Empowered Air Quality Monitoring System (ACM CHI 2017 Full Paper, Top 5% Honorable Mention Award)

Featured

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JPGIyz42JY Developing information technology to democratize scientific knowledge and support citizen empowerment is a challenging task. In our case, a local community suffered from air pollution caused by industrial activity. The residents lacked the technological fluency to gather and curate diverse scientific data to advocate for regulatory change. We collaborated with the community in developing … Continue reading Community-Empowered Air Quality Monitoring System (ACM CHI 2017 Full Paper, Top 5% Honorable Mention Award)

A Web-based Large-scale Timelapse Editor for Interactive Storytelling (IEEE VIS 2015 Poster)

Featured

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3PdZK8HNmk Scientists, journalists, and photographers have used advanced camera technology to capture extremely high resolution timelapses and developed information visualization tools for data exploration and analysis. However, it takes a great deal of effort for professionals to form and tell stories after exploring data, since these tools usually provide little aids in creating visual elements. … Continue reading A Web-based Large-scale Timelapse Editor for Interactive Storytelling (IEEE VIS 2015 Poster)

SynTag: A Web-based Platform for Labeling Real-time Video (ACM CSCW 2012 Short Paper)

Featured

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k7zWjvpDYtE Real-time video streaming has been widely used in multimedia learning environments. As production of online videos is increasing exponentially, it is becoming more difficult for users to reach relevant content. In this paper, we propose SynTag, a web-based platform that enables users to label three types of tags—Good, Question, and Disagree—and to make comments … Continue reading SynTag: A Web-based Platform for Labeling Real-time Video (ACM CSCW 2012 Short Paper)

SimArch: A Multi-agent System For Human Path Simulation In Architecture Design

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6eLmFFtw-DQ Abstract Human moving path is an important feature in architecture design. By studying the path, architects know where to arrange the basic elements (e.g. structures, glasses, furniture… etc.) in the space. This paper presents SimArch, a multi-agent system for human moving path simulation. It involves a behavior model built by using a Markov Decision … Continue reading SimArch: A Multi-agent System For Human Path Simulation In Architecture Design
