Source Came second place is an “information is beautiful” awards competition. These discs detail the visual deconstruction of the space odyssey.
Source Another visualization of deep learning. These are actual pixels being used instead of nodes. The clusters are based on how they have been related via the algorithm.
Source A polarizing cloud of the things people love/hate. This graph could be normally represented as a simple bar chart, however, by aggregating all elements into one “column” it somehow looks more interesting.
Source I’ve always been fascinated by blueprints and their ability to convey real world objects in such a structured way. Everything is measured, indexed, and sorted into quick and easily identifiable tokens for pieces that are repeated.
Just some doodles I did in class the other day. If you ask Dianna, she’ll say I have an affinity for old men faces.
Source Although this doesn’t actually represent any numerical data such as word count, it does paint an interesting picture both symbolically, as well as etymologically. These are the last words of a few chosen individuals.
Source Another look at graphs and how to represent them with large data. In this graph, the use of colour, as well as spatial partitioning combine to give a relative sense as to what you’re looking at.
Source A walk generated using the primes. Every digit was used to decide the direction of the path. For larger numbers, a larger scale was used for each step.
Source Another approach at visualizing pi. Due to the possible transcendental nature of pi, we’re not even sure if a pattern exists. It’s still fun and interesting though to visualize.
Source This company essentially works with processors and developing them for use in machine learning applications. This graph representation has around 3mil nodes. I like the organic feeling it has to it, and the perception of an almost primitive life form.
Source A 2D visualization of a radix sort. This is unique in that most visualizations for sorting are done technically one dimensional. If you watch the video this is pulled from, these are some really amazing visualizations
Source A more abstract take on biological inspiration. Jarbas Agnelli used the position of birds on a wire to create a piece of music. Give it a listen as it is quite melodic.
Source (Slide 51) A Venn diagram labeling the types of grammar that require different parser implementations to parse. Grammars are a very difficult thing to understand and even simple visualizations like this make the area easier to work with.

source A funny comic by famous web-comic: xkcd. I thought this was an interesting recursive look at visualization. It’s a visualization that visualizes itself!
