Processing is a flexible software sketchbook and a language for learning how to code within the context of the visual arts. Since 2001, Processing has promoted software literacy within the visual arts and visual literacy within technology.
The visualizations transforming biology
Inventive graphic design and abstract models are helping researchers to make sense of a glut of data.
04 July 2016
Some of the visualizations that are currently exciting biologists were presented at a conference at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg, Germany, in March. Called Visualizing Biological Data (VIZBI), the meeting was co-organized by Seán O’Donoghue, a bioinformatician at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research in Sydney, Australia. The gathering attracts an eclectic mix of lab researchers, computer scientists and designers and is now in its seventh year.

Big Data and the Rise of Augmented Intelligence
Sean Gourley at TEDxAuckland
Dec 5, 2012
Dr. Sean Gourley is the founder and CTO of Quid. He is a Physicist by training. Sean worked at NASA on self-repairing nano-circuits and is a two-time New Zealand track and field champion. Sean is now based in San Francisco where he is building tools to augment human intelligence.
The top chess players in the world are not humans OR computers, but combinations of humans AND computers. Gourley argues that the world we are living in is too complex for any single human mind to understand and that we need to team up with machines to make better decisions.
