The aim of the course is to provide a broad overview over different aspects regarding visualizing information.
Thematically the course is divided in 3 parts:
- Basic elements and core principles of visualization.
- Human perception and its relation to visualization.
- Algorithms for visualizing complex data such as networks and high-dimensional data
This course replaces the old information visualization course, T-61.5010.
The first two parts have no prerequisites. For the third part, you should be comfortable with optimization techniques such as gradient descent, as well as linear algebra.
