World Wide Weather Guy [Related: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chernoff_face]
"The World Wide Weather Guy (WWW Guy) is a weather nut. He always has The Weather Channel® on and is constantly checking weather conditions around the world on the web. As a matter of fact, he is so interested in the weather that his appearance changes depending on the weather conditions in the location he's thinking about! Talk about empathy.

His face color changes depending on the temperature.
His ear color changes depending on the dew point.
His nose size changes depending on barometric pressure.
His eyes look in the direction of the wind.
His hair waves around at a speed that is dependent on the wind speed.
He has a little perspiration problem that varies depending on the humidity.
If the visibility is below 1 mile he gets a little hard to see.
The background color changes to indicate day (pink) or night (blue)."

Matt Webb – What comes after mobile « Mobile Monday Amsterdam
"Matt Webb talks about how slightly smart things have invaded our lives over the past years. People have been talking about artificial intelligence for years but the promise has never really come through. Matt shows how the AI promise has transformed and now seems to be coming to us in the form of simple toys instead of complex machines. But this talks is about much more then AI, Matt also introduces chatty interfaces & hard math for trivial things."

Chernoff Faces Applet
"Chernoff Faces are a way of graphing multivariate data in a way which is easily discerned by humans, due to their ability to perceive minute differences in facial characteristics. This method of graphing multivariate data was first proposed in 1973 by Herman Chernoff, in "The use of faces to represent points in k-dimensional space graphically", Journal of the American Statistical Association, 68:361-367.

This applet was written way back in the Dark Ages (c. 1994) as a fun side project to learn the Java applet environment, and yet it still seems to work. I did repackage the files into a single .jar file, but that hardly counts for much as modification. Over the years, it has been one of the things that continually draws people to my site, mostly college computer science students following links from their online syllabi, so I've taken a little time to clean up the site and hopefully bring it up to date with 21st century markup, styles, and a bit of filthy lucre."

Humanising data: introducing “Chernoff Schools” for Ashdown
Chernoff Faces are algorithmically generated faces to display complex statistics. BERG are have been playing with idea of "Chernoff Schools" for the Ashdown project. Clever.

Humanising data: introducing “Chernoff Schools” for Ashdown – Blog – BERG
"In one of our brainstorms, where we were discussing ways to visualise a school’s performance – Webb blurted “Chernoff Schools!!!” – and we all looked at each other with a grin.

Chernoff Schools!!! Awesome.

Matt Brown immediately started producing some really lovely sketches based on the rough concept…"

"In one of our brainstorms, where we were discussing ways to visualise a school’s performance – Webb blurted “Chernoff Schools!!!” – and we all looked at each other with a grin. Chernoff Schools!!! Awesome. Matt Brown immediately started producing some really lovely sketches based on the rough concept… And imagining how an array of schools with different performance attributes might look like… Whether they could appear in isometric 3D on maps or other contexts… And how they might be practically used in some kind of comparison table… Since then Tom and Matt Brown have been playing with the data set and some elementary processing code – to give the us the first interactive, data-driven sketches of Chernoff Schools."
