General information

The Simulation and Data Lab Health and Medicine (SimDataLab HM) aims to shed light on novel data analysis approaches in the medical field with extra focus on the application of High Performance Computing (HPC) architectures in the processing of patient medical data, as well as diagnosis and treatment assistance. The SimDataLab HM works in cooperation with the Juelich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) of Forschungszentrum Juelich (FZJ) – Juelich, Germany as part of the SMITH consortium’s Algorithmic Surveillance of ICU Patients (ASIC) use case.
