Work in progress

 

I’ve been working on some research containing complex network graphs, derived from my lab’s research tool Media Cloud - an open platform platform for media analysis. I was working on a link map that looked something like this:

While people who understand network graphs well can make something out of this information, I’ve been looking for ways to make the information fun and interactive. Naturally, I figured that VR would be an interesting way to explore 3 Vector network graphs. I wanted the experience to be the following:

  • Imaginative

  • Immersive

  • Interactive

  • Informative

While still a work in progress, I was fortunate enough to present the work at the Fall 2018 Media Lab member meeting. I got to Demo the work to lab members from Google, Pepsi, Boston Consulting Group, Salesforce, Intuit and Ideo!

 

Stay tuned for more…
