Title Innovative information visualization techniques for representing pairs of people in a face-to-face dating relationship, generated from speculated data sets
Author(s) Zhang, F

Abstract As we move further into the information age, increasing amounts of data are being collected by computers to help people deal with various tasks in their daily lives. Over the years in order to better cope with this growing load of information, a lot of information visualization techniques have been developed as a bridge between abstract complex data and human cognition. With the increase in affective wearable computers we are becoming more capable of recording continuous streams of human physiological data. Coupled with the developing science of mapping human emotion to physiological information, it is possible to see we are not far from being able to continuously record human emotions across long periods of time. This masters project seeks to speculate on the convergence of these new developments and through visualization techniques explore how the resultant information might be effectively represented. Specifically, this project will focus on possible data from couples in a face-to-face dating relationship, and the various ways their dating experience can be visualized. It also looks at how the process of romance might be represented, and whether this visualization can be used to provide answers to various concerns on relationship development and management and highlight growing needs.
