Teranode Corp. will collaborate with Science
Commons, a project of the non-profit corporation Creative Commons, to
build and implement the industry's first neurology repository for the semantic Web. The project, dubbed NeuroCommons.org, will be a freely accessible neurology commons
of data, tools, and pathway knowledge to be used by public and private
researchers. Science Commons will use Teranode's award-winning
platform, TERANODE XDA, as the infrastructure for NeuroCommons.org. All
content will be available in Resource Description Framework (RDF),
allowing participating foundations to search and access a shared
repository of data and research, currently restricted by different
formats and copyright restrictions.
Life sciences represent an ideal test case for the semantic Web.
Data flows into life sciences from an astonishing diversity of sources:
brain images, robot-arrayed "gene chips," machines sorting materials
cell-by-cell, gene sequencers and massively high throughput chemical
screens. NeuroCommons.org will help harness that diversity for private
and public neurological researchers. Science Commons' contributions
will be to develop a community of users, provide access to leaders in health care and life sciences, and provide partnerships in the area of
natural language processing and content.
"NeuroCommons.org will integrate pathway knowledge, experiment data,
and tools into a unified asset simplifying access to a broader range of
resources for researchers," said John Wilbanks, executive director for
Science Commons. "The collaboration will lower unintended legal and
technical barriers to research, facilitate communication and materials
usage between scientists, and increase innovation opportunities for
accelerated research of new therapies."
NeuroCommons.org will be implemented using semantic web standards in
order to optimize information access and ensure flexible community
curation. Semantic Web standards allow data from multiple sources and
ontologies to be integrated into one information space. The resulting
integrated information space breaks down the barriers to access created
by existing siloed databases and opaque schemas. Enriched by the RDF
format, the information can be searched, analyzed, and curated to bring
new insights to a broader range of people.
10/30/2013 | Cray, DDN, Mellanox, NetApp, ScaleMP, Supermicro, Xyratex | Creating data is easy… the challenge is getting it to the right place to make use of it. This paper discusses fresh solutions that can directly increase I/O efficiency, and the applications of these solutions to current, and new technology infrastructures.
10/01/2013 | IBM | A new trend is developing in the HPC space that is also affecting enterprise computing productivity with the arrival of “ultra-dense” hyper-scale servers.
Ken Claffey, SVP and General Manager at Xyratex, presents ClusterStor at the Vendor Showdown at ISC13 in Leipzig, Germany.
Join HPCwire Editor Nicole Hemsoth and Dr. David Bader from Georgia Tech as they take center stage on opening night at Atlanta's first Big Data Kick Off Week, filmed in front of a live audience. Nicole and David look at the evolution of HPC, today's big data challenges, discuss real world solutions, and reveal their predictions. Exactly what does the future holds for HPC?
