CompBioMed e-Seminar #32

CompBioMed’s 32nd e-seminar took place on 26 October 2023, titled “Containers and Cloud-HPC for Virtual Human Twin“.

Containers are a lightweight virtualization solution that provides better performance than other virtualisation solutions. They can be used to improve reproducibility, portability, deployability, and are suitable for Cloud-HPC. These are key features for the development simulations for complex systems like digital twins and the Virtual Human Twin. In this seminar, Dr Tartarini shared his experience containerising biomedical applications and explore how these may underpin the progress towards the Virtual Human Twin (a.k.a. Human Digital Twin).

Dr Daniele Tartarini is a Senior Research Software Engineer in the Department of Computer Science and the Insigneo Institute for in silico medicine of the University of Sheffield. He has a MEng in Information Systems Engineering and PhD in interdisciplinary Sciences and technologies from the University of Salento in Italy. He is one of the authors of the FAIR4SW paper of the Research Data Alliance and he is member of the Avicenna alliance. His research interests are in methods and technologies to accelerate reliable simulations in computational biomedicine, with focus on digital twin and Software as Medical Device. He joined CompBioMed in 2020 to support the development of pFIRE a parallel framework for image registration.

This webinar series is run in collaboration with the VPH Institute
