Description
West investigates the new worlds of visual thinking, insight, and creativity made possible by computer graphics and information visualisation techlogies. He argues that, with the rapid spread of inexpensive and powerful computers, we are w at the beginning of a major transition, moving from an old world based mainly on words and numbers to a new world where high level work in all fields will eventually involve insights based on the display and manipulation of complex information using moving computer images.

Title: Thinking Like Einstein: Returning To Our Visual Roots With The Emerging Revolution In Computer Information Visualization
Author: Thomas G. West

Publisher:Prometheus Books
Publication Date:Nov-01-2004
Pages:222
Binding:Hardcover
Edition:first
Dimensions (inches):6.25 (W) x 9.25 (H) x 0.25 (D)

Subject:Science / General

Description: With the advent of the computer age, visualization technology will radically change the way we work and even think, as demonstrated in an exciting look at the world of problem-solving, images, and visual thinking. 15,000 first printing.

Most of the chapters were adapted from West's Images and Reversals column for Computer Graphics magazine. Current education, he says, is stuck on the skills of medieval clerks--reading and writing--while a new world is emerging based on images that are rich in content and information. He discusses visual thinking, visual technologies, visual brains, and visual people. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR () -- Book News
