Students, Clusters, Supercomputing: Introducing data management technology without sinking the ship

NeuroHub Seminar Series
Speaker: Michael Hanke
Date: November 7, 2019

Abstract: Dr Hanke will provide a progress report on ongoing activities in the context of the development of the DataLad software. Instead of presenting polished solutions, the talk aims to provide insights into his lab’s approach to defining a development/deployment strategy, breaking the neuroimaging bubble, and working with computational infrastructure that resists being forced into compliance with one’s own needs — all within the context of a working research institute that cannot afford major service interruptions.

Bio: Dr Michael Hanke is the Principal Investigator at the Psycho­informatics Lab at Jülich. Research in this lab focuses on the interface of computer and information sciences, neuroscience, and psychology. We develop tools and strategies to employ inter-disciplinary expertise in psychological and neuroimaging research. Our projects range from tailored solutions to specific problems (e.g. PyMVPA) to versatile research platforms (e.g. NeuroDebian) and data management systems (e.g. DataLad).
