Scanning laser ophthalmoscopes (SLOs) can be used for early detection of retinal diseases. With the advent of latest screening technology, the advantage of using SLO is its wide field of view, which can image a large part of the retina for better diagnosis of the retinal diseases. On the other hand, during the imaging process, artefacts such as eyelashes(More)
Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that have common traits such as, high eye pressure, damage to the Optic Nerve Head and gradual vision loss. It affects peripheral vision and eventually leads to blindness if left untreated. The current common methods of pre-diagnosis of Glaucoma include measurement of Intra-Ocular Pressure (IOP) using Tonometer,(More)
The FireGrid project aims to harness the potential of advanced forms of computation to support the response to large-scale emergencies (with an initial focus on the response to fires in the built environment). Computational models of physical phenomena are developed, and then deployed and computed on High Performance Computing resources to infer incident(More)
Modern scientific collaborations have opened up the opportunity of solving complex problems that involve multi-disciplinary expertise and large-scale computational experiments. These experiments usually involve large amounts of data that are located in distributed data repositories running various software systems, and managed by different organisations. A(More)
MOTIVATION Deciphering the regulatory and developmental mechanisms for multicellular organisms requires detailed knowledge of gene interactions and gene expressions. The availability of large datasets with both spatial and ontological annotation of the spatio-temporal patterns of gene expression in mouse embryo provides a powerful resource to discover the(More)
Performance is an open issue in data intensive applications (e.g. data mining tasks). Parallel and distributed computing systems (e.g. multicore computing, grid computing, cloud computing,etc.), along with hybrid programming models (e.g. MapReduce, MPI, etc.), is seen a sought-after solution for accelerating data-intensive applications. One of main(More)
Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness worldwide. There is no cure for glaucoma but detection at its earliest stage and subsequent treatment can aid patients to prevent blindness. Currently, optic disc and retinal imaging facilitates glaucoma detection but this method requires manual post-imaging modifications that are time-consuming and(More)
This paper presents the rationale for a new architecture to support a significant increase in the scale of data integration and data mining. It proposes the composition into one framework of (1) data mining and (2) data access and integration. We name the combined activity DMI. It supports enactment of DMI processes across heterogeneous and distributed data(More)
