Heng Huang leads a group of multi-year projects known as Brain Big Data – a machine learning framework for data mining across multiple research sites to develop diagnostic tools for brain disorders based analyzing gene sequencing, clinical imaging, and biochemical markers together within a unified data set. Combining data formats efficiently is a challenge. Imagine meshing old videotapes and MP4s into one analyzable format – and then including scanned text from film scripts in the analysis. Huang’s team attacked the challenge using CRC resources to blend and process diverse imaging data.
