Below you will find a brief discussion about, and a link to more details for, noteworthy projects that students have completed recently. I find them very interesting and I trust you will too.
I expect that most of the projects that appear on this page will be developed as part of the course work for CSE775 - Distributed Objects or independent study projects that I occasionally supervise.
Interactive Social Network Visualization
CSE775 - Distributed Objects
This work creates an interactive graph of social connections from twitter feeds starting from a root user. The relationship engine works in real time to build a friends of friends of friends ... network, displayed in an iMac application window, which can be manipulated with mouse inputs.The students Lu, Zilong, and Zhi used technologies that were new to them:
These students, as part of their CSE775 - Distributed Objects class obligations, made three presentations: a survey of the technologies they intend to use, a set of probing examples that illustrate how the technologies work, and a final presentation of their results.
The performance of their analysis processing is noteworthy. They're able to handle thousands of nodes in real time; selecting a new root person for example, to see a revised network, is impressive. I thought their ideas and results were excellent - I've been inspired to add Cinder and Redis to my "ToDo" list.
