In the research field of Key Technologies, scientists predominantly work on generic technologies with their promise of new methods and innovative solutions as regards the great challenges our society faces. The projects itself are very heterogeneous in a broad spectrum of scientific disciplines with extraordinary high demands in data management and data processing.
The Data Life Cycle Lab Key Technologies supports a variety of data intensive projects in Karlsruhe, Heidelberg, Dresden and Mannheim.
It aims to provide
- Data life cycle optimization
- Data intensive computing & analysis
- Data management services
Nearly all supported projects use large-scale imaging data requiring extensive image processing and storage capacities:
- Ultra fast X-ray tomography to reveal the anatomy of small organisms
- Data analysis for ultra fast X-ray tomography
- Data management at ANKA
- Fast analysis of image stacks in optical nanoscopy
- Light sheet microscope (LSM)
- Advanced cutting-edge biological research with a high-throughput workflow
- DARIAH – a european research infrastructure
- eCodicology – algorithms for automatic tagging of medieval manuscripts
A detailed description of all subprojects is in the KIT publication Data Life Cycle Lab. Key Technologies. Status 2013. Big Data in Science.
