Neat - history of NASA visualizations (fluids, air, etc). 

What's really amazing is that we've gone from one GPU core to NVIDIA Tesla Kepler K20X with 2688 CUDA Cores at 3.95 Tflops! Perfect for Seismic processing, CFD, CAE, Financial computing, Computational chemistry and Physics, Data analytics, Satellite imaging, Weather modeling.

Powering the Cell: Mitochondria

Together Harvard University and XVIVO developed this 3D animation journey for Harvard's undergraduate Molecular and Cellular Biology students about the micro... (Call me a g33z0r, but this is friggin' beautiful!
ComplexInsight's insight:

As a  huge fan of the XVIVO scientific animation team - this was a delight. My only wish was that they would do two versions - one with labels for key parts and processes. However its wonderful seeing subcellular processes visualized like this to help explain how complex these processes are and what is occuring inside cellular organelles. Worth watching.

Data Visualizations, Challenges, Community

Data Visualizations, Challenges, Community | Complex Insight  - Understanding our world | Scoop.it

We use a lot of visualisation tools as part of our workflows - ranging from gephi which is interegrated into our analytics tools and workflow engine, d3.js (and a bunch of others) in our web reporting frameworks thoguht to realtime interactive 3D. As a result sites like Visualizing.org a community of creative people making sense of complex issues through data and design are great sources of information, knowledge and inspiration. If you are interested in information presentation and data visualization -its a site worth visting regularly. Click on the image ot title to learn more...

New Modeling Approach Transforms Imaging Technologies

New Modeling Approach Transforms Imaging Technologies | Complex Insight  - Understanding our world | Scoop.it
Researchers are improving the performance of technologies ranging from medical CT scanners to digital cameras using a system of models to extract specific information from huge collections of data and then reconstructing images like a jigsaw puzzle...
ComplexInsight's insight:

Traditionally, imaging sensors and software are designed to detect and measure a particular property. The new approach does the inverse, collecting huge quantities of data and later culling specific information from this pool of information using specialized models and algorithms. The approach aims to capture as many measurements we possible with given sensors and then use models to extract and reconstruct features.  The new approach is called model-based iterative reconstruction, or MBIR and echoes how humans solve problems by trial and error, assessing probability and discarding extraneous data and is applicable to both scientific and consumer data processing problems such as image recognition. Great article and very interesting tech. Click on image or title to learn more.

@ Ars Electronica: The Big Picture

@ Ars Electronica: The Big Picture | Complex Insight  - Understanding our world | Scoop.it

Leading on from the piece posted on visualizing.org. These are the winners of the Seed media and Ars Electronica: The Big Picture competition for data visualisation and info communication. Some great pieces of design. Worth reading if you are looking for inspiration (will have to add a new inspiration tag me thinks). Click on the image or the title to learn more.
