Presentations here discuss the origins, strategy, capabilities, and evolution of LIVE envirnoments.
What can LIVE tools do now?
In this JupyterCon keynote talk, Harvard's Alyssa Goodman presented the need for high-dimensional visualization. She focused on how the open-source community has reached the point where tools are repurposable and reconfigurable enough to provide software useful along a spectrum of sophistication--ranging from novice learners and educators to code-oriented researchers.
The specific glue-enabled science projects highlighted included discoveries of The Radcliffe Wave and the nature of the Local Bubble around the Sun, as well as the publication of the first augmented reality figure in an American astronomy journal. All of these discoveries are now part of the MilkyWay3D.org effort serving as the Astronomy demonstrator for LIVE.
What makes it much easier to create LIVE today than in the recent past?
As Solara creator and Widgetti founder Maarten Breddels explains in this talk, while there are many Python web frameworks out there, most are designed for small data apps or use paradigms unproven for larger scale. Code organization, reusability, and state tend to suffer as apps grow in complexity, resulting in either spaghetti code or offloading to a React application.
What about designing a purely JupyterLab interface?
AAS 224 IN NEW ORLEANS: Data-Sharing in Astronomy Special Session (1/11/24)
In January 2024, the leadershp of the American Astronomical Society gaterhed together represenatives of astronomical data archives around the world. LIVE PI Alyssa Goodman was asked to speak there about how LIVE could be used in the near-term future as a way to facilitiate Seamless, interconnected, data-rich, exploration and visualization environments for astronomers. Slides are available in Keynote and PDF formats at Goodman's Talks page, and shown as a slides-only video here.
AAS 224 IN NEW ORLEANS: Visualization Workshop (1/7/24)
The LIVE Astro talk Google Slideshow here was delivered by Jackie Faherty at the AAS Visualization Workshop on 1/7/24 in New Orleans, on behalf of Alyssa Goodman If you've reached this site on or soon after 1/7, please note that it's so new that it's only "almost" ready for primetime, so "pardon our dust" on unfinished sections!
