High-resolution, large-scale image data play a central role in biomedical researches, but they also pose very challenging computational problems for image processing and visualization in terms of developing suitable algorithms, coping with the ever-increasing data sizes, and maintaining interactive performance. Massively parallel computing systems, such as graphics processing units and distributed cluster systems, can be a solution for such computation-demanding tasks due to its scalable and parallel architecture. In addition, recent advances in machine learning can be another solution because the learning-based approach can accelerate computation by shifting the time-consuming computing process into the training (pre-processing) phase and reducing prediction time by performing only one-pass deployment of a feed-forward neural network. In this talk, I will introduce several examples of such research directions from our recent development on large-scale biomedical image analysis using high-performance computing and machine learning techniques, such as cellular-level connectomics image analysis and compressed sensing MRI reconstruction.
