The National Security Agency has launched the “Visualize This!” challenge.
The agency is looking for breakthrough visualizations that can bring order to the chaotic displays of large-scale computer networks.
In the challenge, users will be presented with a scenario of events and challenged to design a next-generation display that enables a network manager to immediately take appropriate action.
