Haptic Data Visualization

from: "Review of Designs for Haptic Data Visualization"

A combination of aproaches (e.g. auditory and haptic) is best for graph visualization. They assist in both faster and more accurate recognition:

Augmented Cognition Overview

Augmented cognition relates to a number of fields, including my interests in information visualization and automated software engineering. The research article Neurotechnologies for Human Cognitive Augmentation: Current State of the Art and Future Prospects shows that EEG will be very popular in 2040 for various activities such as communication, control, user selection, and training. User selection would be helpful for brushing, highlighting, etc. with visualizations, such as those displayed by smartglasses.


My favorite except from the article shows something that seems even more tangible:


Even when such systems are not directly aimed at augmenting performance, monitoring the mental state of users makes it possible to enhance their performance by adapting the interface they interact with, with so called adaptive interfaces. For instance, Wilson and Russell (2007) described a neuroadaptive system where the users’ task is to detect a target in an environment and where the mental workload is varied according to the feedback given by EEG and other physiological measures.
