  • Orchestration of distributed image archives (Jonas De Almeida)

    Summary: Recent advances in the use of HTTP range requests to traverse bioformats*, coupled with a general move to “zero footprint” image informatics solutions, enable the creation of image archives as an exercise in governance. A particular feature of this configuration is that the images do not have to be copied or moved from their primary location. This has two interesting effects: a) the image owner remains in control of its governance; and b) training of AI classifiers can be federated across image sets that are not even shared.
