Data is at the core of all modern research activities. How well and how fast data is processed is often critical to the success of a project. The Center seeks better ways to analyze, model, and process large amounts of data to make it understandable and useable.
While modern technology has made it possible to collect huge quantities of data, data is not useful unless it can be turned into knowledge. Researchers and analysts need mechanisms to extract, process, and interpret data so that it can be used to inform decision makers. This is an issue that touches nearly every scientific discipline today, including engineering, chemistry, biology, and medicine.
The Center in Data Analysis, Simulation, Imaging, and Visualization is working to design innovative algorithms that can improve the flow and interpretation of data collected by a variety of advanced equipment, such as electron microscopes, earth remote sensing satellites, and supercomputer hydrodynamic simulations.
These algorithmic designs have the potential to be licensed for use for both fundamental and applied research within academic, government and private sectors. Start-up companies focused on processing and analyzing data within a particular field, such as DNA sequencing analysis, could also be created.
The Center focuses on specific high-priority areas, including inline data processing, multi-sensor data acquisition, tissue modeling, atomic scale imaging, and bioimaging.
