Catherine Griffiths on Visualizing Algorithms

Applied Computer Science Lecture Series

The Applied Computer Science Lecture Series features practitioners from a wide range of creative and scientific fields, all of whom incorporate applied computer science and technology at the core of their professional inquiry. Open to the entire Woodbury community, the lectures aim to foster dialogue around the increasing role of technology in society, its application across a diverse range of professional practices, the resulting explosion of creative and expressive modes of production, and the ethical and moral dilemmas that have emerged as technology has evolved.

On September 5, 2018, the lecture series welcomed Catherine Griffiths, a PhD candidate in Media Arts + Practice at the University of Southern California, School of Cinematic Arts. Catherine’s lecture entitled Visualizing Algorithms presented her research at the intersection of design, computation and critical studies, for the visualization of algorithms in the context of machine learning and the ethics of algorithms debate.

Catherine is the principal at Isohale, a design studio working with new technologies and creative code to develop cinematic visualizations of scientific data and environmental processes. Previously, she worked for architecture and engineering firms on design visualization and pilot studies for coastal technology projects. She has a bachelor’s degree in Fine Art from the University of the Arts London, and a master’s degree in Architecture from The Bartlett, University College London.
