This project’s objective is to enable extreme-scale, data-centric pipelines for brain science. The scalable workflows, focused on analysis and visualization of experimental data, will help researchers gain invaluable knowledge about disease models, such as Alzheimer’s, autism spectrum disorder, and many others. Additionally, the insights gleaned will enable transformative advances in neuromorphic computing.
