In a world awash with data there is an increasing need for effective methods of gaining insight into associated and underlying information. We need methods for visualizing information to support rapid learning and accurate decision making. The talk will emphasize on various aspects of information visualization using real world examples besides life sciences and medical applications of computer generated interactive information visualization methods. Information visualization deals with the representation and presentation of concepts and data in a meaningful way. Depending on the medium used, information can be visualized in either traditional static form or more recent and powerful interactive and dynamic using virtual reality technology.
