Akai Kaeru LLC, founded in 2016, delivers an innovative interactive multivariate visualization framework to assist users in the understanding of complex phenomena and help with decision making in the presence of multiple factors or criteria. It embodies a map-like visual rendition of the high-dimensional data space which naturally appeals to a mainstream user’s innate visual literacy, making it easy to learn and use. Backed by a powerful machine learning and data analytics engine, and through a variety of interaction facilities, users can define areas on the map that indicate parameter values of their interest. This then enables them to make informed decisions within a single visual interface and balance among the diverse impacts the various factors have on the decisions. Given the massive growth in the availability of multivariate data, the unique capabilities the framework provides are bound to have a strong impact on society, in many application domains and at many different levels, personal, business, finance, scientific, medicine, and so on.
