Abstract
RESEARCH INTO VISUALIZATION TECHNIQUES FOR HEURISTIC PROCESSES IS PROPOSED, INCLUDING THE DESIGN OF A SOFTWARE SYSTEM IN WHICH THESE TECHNIQUES ARE IMPLEMENTED. IN ADDITION TO THE SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURE,THE SYSTEM DESIGN WILL INCLUDE A DESCRIPTION OF USER INTERFACE FUNCTIONS AND A STRATEGY FOR INTERFACING WITH EXISTING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE APPLICATIONS. EXISTING WORK IN ALGORITHM ANIMATION AND IN THE TAXONOMIC CLASSIFICATION OF HEURISTIC PROCESSES WILL SUPPORT THE VISUALIZATION RESEARCH. THE RESULTING PRESENTATION METHODOLOGY WILL BE GENERALIZABLE, SUCH THAT A SET OF GUIDELINES FOR THE DISPLAY OF OTHER NON-QUANTITATIVE MODELS MAY BE PRODUCED. THE PROPOSED EFFORT INCLUDES AN EVALUATION OF HEURISTIC PROCESSING TAXONOMIES, A REVIEW OF METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR ALGORITHM ANIMATION, DEVELOPMENT OF HEURISTIC PROCESS VISUALIZATION METHODS, AND GENERATION OF A DESIGN FOR A SOFTWARE SYSTEM INCORPORATING THE ABOVE RESULTS.
