Biography: Holding a Ph.D. in Computational Neuroscience from The Technical University in Berlin, Dr. Hauke Bartsch has been responsible for software developments in the areas of diffusion tensor imaging, brain perfusion, whole slice image processing and reconstruction, brain mapping and atlas generation, deformable shape models, shape analysis and general numerical simulations. Currently working as a Programmer Analyst in the Department of Radiology at the University of California, San Diego, Dr. Bartsch plays a key role in the development of the data exploration and hypothesis testing portal (Data Portal) used, for example, in the Pediatric Imaging Neurocognition and Genetics (PING) study, the Alzheimer's Disease Research Center (ADRC) project, and in the Pediatric Longitudinal Imagine Neurocognition and Genetics (PLING) study. Recently the system was also adapted for the Human Connectome Project (HCP).
Synopsis: The Red Queen said to Alice, "If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!”. In the age of big data science, data collection, study observation and data sharing have to change their ways to keep up with ever increasing numbers of study participants, time points and the shortening of intervals of data sharing. Dr. Hauke Bartsch will present some key features of the ABCD studies collection of biological and behavioral brain phenotypes with a special focus on data visualization. During the presentation we will see how one of a kind research studies benefit from best practices of software development and how transparency, interactivity and gamification can be used to improve data quality by increasing the acceptance and utilization of our computer systems by all users.
