Visual Computing Forum

The Visual Computing Forum, or VCF, is a series of seminars organized by the visualization group with selected talks from the fields of visualization, image processing, computer graphics, and so on. The individual seminars are arranged approximately once a month, on Fridays from 11am to 12am, and they will be interleaved with the MedViz seminars. They will be held either at the Høyteknologisenteret or at the VilVite Science Center.

Title: Visualization, story telling, and the big picture.

Speaker: Rasmus Slaattelid

Place: Room 3137, 3rd floor Høyteknologisenteret

Time: Friday Febraury 19, 2016, from 10:15am to 11:00am

At the University of Bergen, there exists several research environments that focus on visualizations. Visualizations of data, or of scientific knowledge more generally, visual cultures, diagrammatic thinking, and story-telling in visual media. If we look beyond the UoB, the picture grows even more diverse. This multitude of approaches and interests already suggests that a comprehensive understanding of visualization as a cognitive tool within one discipline is difficult, and that more collaboration across these disciplinary divides would be fruitful. The aim of my talk is to present some possible common areas of interest between different disciplines studying visualizations.

Title: What is going on at the IRIS offices in the 8th floor?

Speaker: Rodica Mihai and Geir Nævdal

Place: Room 3137, 3rd floor Høyteknologisenteret

Time: Friday January 29, 2016, from 10:15am to 11:00am

IRIS has an extensive research activity within energy, social sciences and marine biology. Main areas for IRIS Energy are drilling and well technology, reservoir technology, green technologies and research testing facilities. We will give a short introduction to our work within real time modelling of the drilling process and name some of its challenges. Products of this work are among others, an unique simulation environment called Virtual Rig as well as automated drilling solutions which have been successfully implemented offshore. In the second part of the presentation we will introduce shortly our work on ensemble based methods for large scale parameter estimation and optimizations problems, with a particular focus on flow in porous media, namely oil reservoirs. Main research area in IRIS has been so far oil related but we have currently increasing ongoing research activity to apply similar techniques within other research areas such as medicine research, i.e. blood flow modelling
