The growth of digital data is tremendous. Any aspect of life and
matter is being recorded and stored on cheap disks, either in the
cloud, in businesses, or in research labs. We can now afford to
explore very complex relationships with many variables playing a
part. But for this we need powerful tools that allow us to be
creative, to sculpt this intricate insight from the raw block of data
and finally create a formal model capturing this insight. This process
of learning models from raw data typically requires a substantial
amount of user input during the model initialization
phase. High-quality visual feedback can play a decisive role here. To
this end, I will present an assistive visualization system which
greatly reduces the load on the users and makes the process of model
initialization and refinement more interactive and efficient. In
addition, I will also discuss various platforms we have developed over
the years to make the exploration of multivariate (high-dimensional)
data more intuitive and direct. Here I will discuss our recent work on
illustrative parallel coordinates, space embedding, and multivariate
