Drop by anytime between 1:00- 3:00pm

Huang Engineering Center, room 050


The HIVE features a 10-foot-tall by 24-feet-wide display with 13440x5400 resolution and 72 million total active pixels.  Come see how the HIVE helps researchers to visualize various aspects of data analysis and simulation, and to zoom-in to discover detail and nuance at previously unheard-of-levels. 


This event features collaborative visualization and research projects already taking place in the HIVE

1:00pm - Stanford's PBL Lab will show their research on how distributed settings affect individuals’ cognitive performance and learning
1:30pm - Stace Maples, of the Stanford Geospatial Center, will provide a brief demonstration of Google Earth Engine, which combines a multi-petabyte catalog of satellite imagery and geospatial datasets with planetary-scale analysis capabilities
2:00pm - A researcher with Professor Alison Marsden's Lab will show results from patient-specific cardiovascular blood flow simulations
2:30pm - Johnny Kuo of Global Business Services will present on Stanford's international projects, illustrating the University's activities in over 150 countries

No R.S.V.P. is needed; light refreshments will be served


About the HIVE

The HANA Immersive Visualization Environment (HIVE), was built in partnership between the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering (ICME), the Army High Performance Computing Research Center (AHPCRC), and with the generous support of SAP.  Located in Huang 050, the HIVE may be reserved by Stanford faculty, students, and staff, free of charge, for research visualization projects and courses.

The HIVE features a 10-foot-tall by 24-feet-wide display with 13440x5400 resolution and 72 million total active pixels.  Researchers may use multiple displays simultaneously to investigate various aspects of data collection, simulation, and visualization and to zoom in to see detail at previously unheard-of-levels.
