The Big (Imaging) Data Initiative

A team of IT professionals has developed the big data infrastructure for 4, 5 and higher multidimensional imaging. A high- performance computer cluster enables data registration and integration for all modalities. Software robots handle routine data archive in sophisticated imaging data bases which are accessible across the Internet. Four high performance GRID servers support multiple state of the art software packages for data analysis and visualization for DIIL collaborators. Contact: G Allan Johnson, PhD.
