How Imperial College London uses NVIDIA GPUs to spot brain damage
30 Mar 2016 London - On the NVIDIA blog it is explained how researchers at Imperial College London are deploying sophisticated image analysis tools, powered by GPUs and deep learning, to help diagnose damage to our most complex organ, the brain. The blog reports that computational methods are at the core of work by a team led by Ben Glocker, a lecturer at Imperial's computing department. Taking advantage of the rich data in biomedical scans, their system provides automated, image-based assessments of traumatic brain injuries at speeds other systems can't match. The work has placed Glocker and his team among five finalists for NVIDIA's 2016 Global Impact Award. The annual grant of $150,000 is given to researchers using NVIDIA technology for groundbreaking work that addresses social, humanitarian and environmental problems.
