ABSTRACT The Synaesthetic Media Lab (Synlab.ca ) at Georgia Tech and Ryerson University explores emerging modalities in new media. Our research focuses on tangible and embodied interaction technologies that support creative practices that bridge the physical and digital worlds. Applications range across media arts, computational sciences, entertainment, and educational domains.
BIO – Dr. Ali Mazalek's research provides us with new ways to interact with large and complex data sets that are generated by biomedical research, social networks, transportation networks and other sources. These tools enable researchers to find hidden patterns and relationships in the data and support the construction of models that can help us better understand how these systems work and how they can be modified.
