”Perceptualization” is a word that we made up. It describes the translation of signals and information to modalities that appeal to the human senses. As such, it generalizes visualization and sonification to include all other senses. We study such perceptualizations, with particular focus on how properties of a perception systems can be used to optimally convey information.

In this course, theory, practice, history and examples of information perceptualization are studied and discussed. Lectures are combined with reading homework, student presentations and a student project. Full attendance is compulsory. For more information, see the course webpage at Perceptualization website

The student will gain insight into perceptualization of information via theory, discussion and examples.
