Neuronix: A Low-Cost High Performance Cluster

The Institute for Signal and Information Processing logo

The Neuronix high performance computing cluster allows us to conduct big data machine learning research. Some of our current projects being enabled by this cluster include:

  • AUTO_EEG: providing decision support to neurologists by automatically interpreting EEG signal events.
  • COHORT RETRIEVAL: identification of patients who are most similar to a target patient so that neurologists can better diagnose abnormalities in an EEG.
  • TUH_EEG: The world's largest publicly available EEG corpus representing 14 years of clinical EEGs collected at Temple University Hospital.
  • TUH_DPATH: Developing a large open-source database of pathology slides that can be used to train high performance deep learning models.

The Neuronix cluster was funded by the National Human Genome Research Institute of the NIH under award number U01HG008468ß.
