Designed especially for neurobiologists, FluoRender is an interactive tool for multi-channel fluorescence microscopy data visualization and analysis.
Deep brain stimulation
BrainStimulator is a set of networks that are used in SCIRun to perform simulations of brain stimulation such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and magnetic transcranial stimulation (TMS).
Developing software tools for science has always been a central vision of the SCI Institute.

As machine learning (ML) becomes the centerpiece of innumerable applications with direct impact on human beings, being able to explore, understand, test and debug models has become a crucial aspect for machine learning adoption. Especially when ML is employed for critical applications that impact people's lives (e.g., medical interventions and hiring decisions) , it is essential for data scientists and domain experts to have a better sense of how a model may behave once it is deployed.

In this talk, I describe the work we are doing to support exploratory data analysis of machine learning data and models through the development of interactive data visualization. I will explain why exploratory analysis of models is necessary and what we can achieve with it. I will also describe techniques and tools we developed to support the work of data scientists and domain experts in this area. I will conclude with a discussion of open issues and hints of technologies we will need in the near future.

bio:Enrico Bertini is an Associate Professor at Northeastern University with a double appointment between Computer Science (Khoury) and Art&Design (CAMD). Before joining Northeastern he was at New York University, where has been a professor between 2012-2021. His area of research is data visualization, with a focus on data visualization for machine learning, computational guidance for data exploration and the cognitive/perceptual aspects of data visualization. Prof. Bertini is also the co-host of Data Stories, a popular podcast on the role data play in our lives.
