The aim of the application project IVC Multi is to research novel intelligent visual computing methods supporting decision-making in automotive industry, medicine, and life sciences based on ensembles of heterogeneous, multi-scale and/or multi-temporal data.
The aim of the project IVC Stream is to research novel visual computing solutions for simulation and measurement data.
This project aims at accelerating and automating image-based decision making with an application focus on medicine, recycling and quality assurance processes in manufacturing.
The strategic project of the area is the organizational and scientific hub for the realization of the area-wide intelligent visual computing approach for analytics and modelling based on ensembles of dense grid-based data, derived data, and digital embedding.
Within the project Larvalbrain 2.0, a dynamic multi-scale multi-level atlas and data collection of structural, molecular, physiological, and behavioral results of Drosophila melanogaster larvae will be established.
VRVis a founding member of the Austrian BioImaging/CMI, which is a professional consortium of multiple Austrian science institutions and the official Austrian Euro-BioImaging initiative.
COMULIS is an EU-funded COST Action that aims at fueling collaborations in the field of correlated multimodal imaging (CMI).
The long-term vision of this applied research project is to use available data resources to improve image-based diagnostics based on complex data in daily clinical routine.
The combination of "liquid biopsies", machine learning and data visualization aims to enable earlier and more accurate prediction of a relapse in children with cancer.
The strategic project forms the organizational and scientific hub for the realization of an area wide integrative visual computing approach. It covers joint strategic research and development on fundamental challenges in all application projects.
Understanding how the brain works is one of the biggest challenges addressed by neuroscientists today. Modern neuroscience research is extremely data-intensive and requires special software infrastructures to enable and accelerate the discovery of the complex interplay of genes, structure and function.
Complex simulation data is practically omnipresent today.
Visual computing for medicine: image processing solutions for new applications in radiology.
For centuries, neuroscientists have been mapping the brain. Until now, the step from simple maps to a generally accepted model has proved to be extremely difficult. In this project, a 4D atlas of the brain of the fruit fly larva is being built.
VRVis contributes data analytics and visualization tools tailored to support and accelerate research of the Haubensak Group at the Institute of Molecular Pathology Vienna.
Visual computing techniques for the automated detection of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis.
Software for the use of multi-modality images in external radiotherapy.
Next generation workflows for interactive knowledge generation from images and simulations.
The analysis, visualization and exploration of high-dimensional image spaces are the subject of the KAFus project.
