It's not too late to find a great summer internship at IBM Research!
We are looking for a highly motivated student to participate in an exciting project on social media visualization in collaboration with several visualization and human-computer interaction researchers across several IBM Research labs. The project involves design and development of novel real-time visualizations of status data from social networking websites to help users understand quality and quantity of the content and structure of evolving topics of discussions. The work will involve development of a scalable back-end architecture for capturing streaming data, extracting features from data and meta-data, aggregating and transforming data, defining visualizations in a declarative specification language, and possibly extending the declarative visualization language, as well as front-end graphical user interface for rendering and interacting with visualizations.
Familiarity with existing web-based visualization frameworks would be a plus.
Familiarity with AJAX and Comet server communication approaches is preferred.
Backend Development: Java (J2EE),
Experience with database design and querying from J2EE applications would be a plus.
Location can be either Cambridge, MA or San Jose, CA.
