New Immersive Visualization Studio

Demonstrations of the new Immersive Visualization Studio in EERC 510 were held on Feb 1. The new facility is part of the of the Paul & Susan Williams Center for Computer Systems Research directed by Professor Saeid Nooshabadi (ECE/CS). Displays of two current research projects were shown. The social event was cosponsored by the Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Computer Science at Michigan Technological University. The facility can be used to analyze tremendous amount of data, study the fluid dynamics of Lake Superior, simulate volcanic eruptions, and look at weather patterns. One student opportunity: developing applications within the Husky Games Enterprise. Professor Saeid Nooshabadi directs this computing center. He envisions interdisciplinary teams addressing new problems, sharing camaraderie and a purpose, and engaging in a “cross-pollination” of ideas. His focus: “make it practical and useful.”
