Data analytics is a service provided by the University of Newcastle’s Centre for Bioinformatics Biomarker Discovery and Information-Based Medicine (CIBM). It provides scientific, mathematically-literate, supercomputing based processes for examining large raw datasets commonly found in modern society’s deluge of information.
By drawing attention to the relevant characteristics of data it can assist organisations in making better decisions, or in proving or disproving existing theories and assumed working hypotheses. CIBM provides world-class expertise and customisable solutions based on state-of-the-art optimisation techniques linked together with innovative data mining and machine intelligence methodologies.
CIBM’s state-of-the-art high performance computing facilities amount to an aggregated processing power of approximately 10 Tera FLOPS in 176 cores, 7168 GPU cores, 848 Gb RAM, 10 Tb disk space in two clusters of machines.
Data analytics encompasses several activities including:
Professor Pablo Moscato, CIBM Co-Director
Dr. Regina Berretta, CIBM Member, Head of Discipline, Computer Science and Software Engineering
All organisations that store information on their normal operations can use Data Analytics to better understand their operational models, business environment, and to assist in decision making. A comprehensive Data Analytics procedure should be implemented to guarantee the quality of the data and its usefulness for later stage investigation.
CIBM is a solution provider actively pursuing industry engagement for the purpose of contract research and partnerships. CIBM can offer tailored solutions which can be implemented via collaboration, contract research, government sponsored linkage grants that could help business partners to develop a common IP with our institution.
