Massive Cell Data sets

Analyzing organisms with minimal computing power. 

Algorithm Uses Online Learning for Massive Cell Datasets

Michigan Medicine, Kelly Malcolm, April 19, 2021

An algorithm developed by University of Michigan (U of M) researchers employs online learning to accelerate the analysis of enormous cell datasets, using the amount of memory found on a standard laptop computer. The algorithm enables new datasets to be added to existing ones without reprocessing the older datasets, and allows researchers to segment datasets into mini-batches so less memory is required for processing. U of M's Joshua Welch said, "Our technique allows anyone with a computer to perform analyses at the scale of an entire organism. That's really what the field is moving towards."
