VISUAL COMPUTATION: Images and Visualization

Computer vision and digital imaging have a fundamental role in the research envisaged for the USP-e-Science Network: i) digital images retain information covering an array of phenomena in various disciplines; ii) data visualization is one of the most influential tools promoting multidisciplinary interaction for data interpretation by team specialists in

Modern science is interdisciplinary and data-intensive. For instance, in the 1000 Genomes Project (, the comparative study of 629 individuals has already generated 7.3 TB of data. Analogous situations exist in fields such as astronomy, agriculture, social sciences, etc. Ten years ago, the problem was how to obtain data. Today, the bottleneck is the need for new computational strategies and tools so that scientists can manage these massive volumes of heterogeneous, distributed, data, so that they can generate new knowledge from the processing, analysis and visualization of the data. This launched the basis of the so-called eScience: the combination of advanced research in computer science and mathematical modeling to allow and accelerate research in other knowledge domains. National programs in eScience have been created in the US, GB, Australia and other countries, that recognized the importance of this theme for the advancement of science. The main goal of this project is the design and construction of a collaborative network for research in eScience, in a partnership that involves computer science . . .
