The theme of the event was ”Breaking Currents” and the ambiguous wording of the theme inspired me to the ambiguous title of my talk: Human Data for Life.
Videos from the event should be posted within a couple of weeks.
As part of the Personal Informatics Workshop at CHI2013 we presented our paper QS Spiral: Visualizing Periodic Quantified Self Data. The paper is co-authored with Andrea Cuttone and Sune Lehmann.
In the paper we propose an interactive visualization technique QS Spiral that aims to capture the periodic properties of quantified self data and let the user explore those recurring patterns. The approach is based on time-series data visualized as a spiral structure. The interactivity includes the possibility of varying the time span and the time frame shown, allowing for different levels of detail and the discoverability of repetitive patterns in the data on multiple scales.
At the recent MeeGo 2011 conference Arek Stopczynski and I gave a well received presentation on ‘Mobile Platforms in Research and Teaching’, where we gave a set of specific examples of research projects that have included prototyping on high-end smartphone/tablet devices.
The online Prezi presentation is available here.
