Insight uses modern cloud infrastructure to enhance the practices of vascular surgeons

Submitted on Thursday, 26/10/2023

Researchers at Insight SFI Research Centre for Data Analytics at the University of Galway are using AI/ML models on modern cloud infrastructure to reduce data processing times enhancing the practices of vascular surgeons as part of the Virtual Aorta collaborative project.

This project is being supported by Open Clouds for Research Environments (OCRE) funding. Through the OCRE framework, Rackspace Technology provide Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud services to research institutions, universities and NREN members across Europe, aiming to boost cloud adoption and refine the tools available to the education and research communities.

Professor Edward Curry, Director at the Insight SFI Research Centre for Data Analytics, University of Galway, said, “Computationally modeling the aorta is resource-intensive, beyond our present compute capabilities. Our collaboration with Rackspace Technology and AWS via OCRE has granted us access to scalable cloud computing infrastructure. This increased compute capacity is a game-changer in reducing the analysis time.”

Insight at the University of Galway was delighted to work with Rackspace Technology to produce this exciting case study that highlights the power and potential of such collaborations.
