Virtual File System Will Save Vast Computer Storage Space by Processing Images on the Fly

Researchers analyzing complex multidimensional images may be able to save hundreds of terabytes of disk space, a team from PSC reported at the XSEDE16 supercomputing conference in Miami today. Their “virtual file system” software now in development will carry out image processing on the fly, for any viewing software, saving vast data storage by making it unnecessary to maintain multiple...

Teaching the Machine to See Blacklight "Trains" Video Search System for Competition Victory

A good example that we live in the era of Big Data is that, as we’ve moved from super-8-film home movies to ever-present smartphones, we’ve all begun to generate so much visual imagery that we seldom look at a given video more than once. Worse, when we do want to find a video clip, it’s lost among thousands of others. Machine intelligence researchers Shoou-I Yu and Lu Jiang, working with...
