Goals of the project:

  • To explore Information Visualization, Exploratory Data Analys and Machine Learning methods that support human reasoning processes; to research the strengths and limitations of these methods and see how different combinations can support more in-depth reasoning processes to help users gain more insights from information and data;
  • To develop methods to support exploration and visualization of data and information.

The project is conducting a study analysing medical data from the Department of Child and Adolescent Neuropsychiatry at the Medical University of Vienna. This highly structured, time based, categorical data comes from questionnaires of girls with eating disorders (anorexia nervosa).

" Tracking and comparing psychotherapeutic data derived from questionnaires involves a number of highly structured, time-oriented parameters. Descriptive and other statistical methods are only suited for partial analysis. Therefore, we created a novel spring-based interactive Information Visualization method for analysing these data more in-depth. With our method the user is able to find new predictors for a positive or negative course of the therapy due to the combination of various visualization and interaction methods. "
