Princeton, Intel, Yale and Penn Medicine Receive Award for Cloud-Based Brain Mapping Project

Thursday, Dec 13, 2018

Congratulations to researchers from the Princeton Neuroscience Institute; Princeton Computer Science Department; Yale University; Intel; and Penn Medicine on a Fierce Innovation Award recognizing the Real-Time Attention Study.

The goal of this research is to provide a new avenue for depression treatment by using a cloud-based, real-time image analysis system. The cloud-based project deployed at Penn Medicine originated with work begun by Princeton neuroscientists and computer scientists to develop fast fMRI data analysis methods and software.

Intel has been a long-time and critical corporate collaborator, joining the project in its early days at Princeton and continuing through to the cloud deployment at Penn.

This collaboration stands as a superb example of an effort that pulls together the capabilities and insights of researchers across disciplines and campus; across institutions; and from industry.
