Concept

Seeing Meaning is a research initiative that I lead for one year in the Cognitive Machines Group at the MIT Media Laboratory in 2004. The focus of the research was to develop transparent systems to visualize and interactive with large complex datasets of literature, sound, and video. The images above are stills from a custom Java-based software and represent a new visual reconfiguration of binary tree structures, which underly many popular search algorithms. This research led to "Wildcard" a software system currently in use in the labs of Johnson and Johnson, Inc.
