Goal of the research project
The objective of this project is to link the field of dimensionality reduction (DR) with that of information visualization (IV), in order to harness the special properties of the latter within DR frameworks. In particular, the properties of controllability and interactivity are of interest, which should make the DR outcomes significantly more understandable and tractable for the (no-necessarily-expert) user. These two properties allow the user to have freedom to select the best way for representing data. Then, in other words, it can be said that the goal of this project is to develop a DR framework that facilitates an interactive and quick visualization of data representation to make more intelligible the DR outcomes, as well as to allow users modifying the views of data according to their needs in an affordable way.
