Image data is a tool for studying brain science. How to generate, display, analyze, share these data is very interesting but also very challenging cutting-edge research. This report discusses a series of international large-scale brain image data problems and projects as well as Vaa3D, image data visualization and analysis platform software.
Brief Intro of the speaker：
Professor Hanchuan Peng (http://penglab.com/) who graduated from Southeast University, leads a group of computational neuroanatomy and smart imaging at the Allen Institute for Brain Science. He also served as an adjunct professor with University of Washington, University of Georgia, etc. Peng is the inventor of a number of algorithms and software/hardware systems, including Vaa3D, Brain Aligner, Neuron Tracers, Smart Scope, m RMR, 3D Virtual Finger, Smart ACT, Tera Fly, etc. He is also the lead for a major international collaboration project “Big Neuron” (http://bigneuron.org) and the editor of two international academic journals, Brain Informatics and BMC Bioinformatics (Imaging & Visualization section). He did a large number of cutting-edge work in the biomedical big data, computational neuroscience, bioinformatics, data mining and computer vision, three-dimensional visualization and other areas.
