The Lead

Techniques known as dimensionality reduction can help find patterns in the recorded activity of thousands of neurons. Rather than look at all responses at once, these methods find a smaller set of dimensions — in this case three — that capture as much str

New Platform Enables Large-Scale Neuroscience

July 28, 2014 2:23 pm | by Howard Hughes Medical Institute | News | Comments

In an age of “big data,” a single computer cannot always find the solution a user wants. Computational tasks must instead be distributed across a cluster of computers that analyze a massive data set together. It's how Facebook and Google mine your Web history to present you with targeted ads, and how Amazon and Netflix recommend your next favorite book or movie. But big data is about more than just marketing.
