The Big Data Lab in NTNU, in collaboration with local industries, is developing a new visual analytics framework, covering data processing, decision support, and visualization. We have projects on several domains in the context of (midwest) Norway, including marine operations and ship design, water engineering, and cancer research. We intend to follow the approach of design thinking in developing our Big Data/IIoT technologies. In this talk, I will present a brief overview of our framework and some recent works.
