UMD Research Team Developing Powerful Data Visualization Tool with Support from Oracle

The University of Maryland's Human-Computer Interaction Lab has garnered the support of the Oracle Health Sciences Institute for its research that is helping medical professionals analyze millions of patient records by developing a powerful data visualization tool called EventFlow. EventFlow is allowing medical professionals to uncover the relationships between treatment protocols and adverse events. This technology is based upon temporal event sequences so it can be applied to many fields beyond medicine. Many other fields have begun to implement this tool.

"Part of the thrill of discovering through information visualization is to be able to see patterns that you did not expect to see. Visualization is not about pictures, it is about insight" says Ben Shneiderman, a professor of computer science at the University of Maryland.

Schneiderman, along with Catherine Plaisant, a senior research scientist and Jennifer Golbeck, director of the Human-Computer Interaction Lab, discuss their research and the development of EventFlow in the following video:
