Abstract:

Over the past decade there have been significant advances in bringing parallel computing and new database management systems to a wider audience. Through a number of efforts such as the National Strategic Computing Initiative NSCI, there has been a push to merge these Big Data and Scientific Computing communities to a single computational platform. At the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Lincoln Laboratory, we have been developing HPC and database technologies to address a number of scientific problems including biomedical processing. In this article, we briefly describe these technologies and how we have used them in the past. We are interested in learning more about the needs of clinical pathologists as we continue to develop these technologies.
