Gianfranco Doretto will be Co-PI of a $1.1M grant awarded by the NSF as part of the MRI program. The goal of the project is to build “Dolly Sods,” a HPC platform based on GPUs that will pave the way for cutting-edge research in Deep Learning that will enable diagnostic imaging of tumors, screening of small molecule drug design, detection of interstellar phenomena, design and optimization of data algorithms used in space flight, computer vision of medical images and information processing of business-based managerial decisions.
