Webinar Abstract: Most scientific computation and analyses create important transient data and preliminary results. Quick and effective assessments of these data are necessary for efficient use of researchers time and computation resources, but this process is complicated when a large collaborating team is geographically dispersed and/or some team members do not have direct access to the computation resource and output data. Current methods for sharing and assessing transient data and preliminary results are cumbersome, labor intensive, and largely unsupported by useful tools and procedures. Each research team is forced to create their own ad hoc procedures to push results from system to system, and user to user, to guide the next step in their research. The SeedMe platform provides a web-based cyberinfrastructure to enable easy sharing and streaming of transient data and preliminary results directly from computing resources to a variety of platforms, from mobile devices to workstations, and make it possible to quickly and conveniently view and assess results and provide an essential yet missing component in computing infrastructure.

About the Presenter

Amit Chourasia leads the Visualization Services group at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC). His work is focused on research, development and application of software tools and techniques for visualization. Key portion of his work is to find ways to represent data in a visual form that is clear, succinct and accurate - a challenging yet very exciting endeavor.
