DOE’s SciDAC Visualization and Analytics Center for Enabling Technologies -

Even though the datasets involved are way beyond my day-to-day (clinical) work in mental health and an understanding of the techniques involved, I'm a sucker for the images and knowledge that scientific visualization opens up.

At Cyberinfrastructure Technology Watch the article -

DOE’s SciDAC Visualization and Analytics Center for Enabling Technologies - Strategy for Petascale Visual Data Analysis Success

For quite a while I've been thinking about individual health and social care and the point at which things become complex. You come to realise the role scalability plays in these things. And when you do - complexity is never far away. Just how far away are these esoteric datasets?

At VACET the body behind this work it speaks volumes that 'visualization' is not alone. It's not just about (and never was I'm sure!) pretty pictures: ANALYSIS figures large too (great to see enabling in there too!).
