ANU: Collaborative research and data sharing

Open source software and open sharing have become crucial tools for modern scientific research. Bigger datasets require faster algorithms to analyze them, and sharing data allows researchers to avoid siloed pipelines, as well as validate their findings more quickly. Learn how Australian National University is empowering its genome researchers by leveraging digital collaboration tools powered by Microsoft #Azure to drive faster breakthroughs.

Data-sharing is an immense enabler of scientific advancements. When researchers choose to make their data publicly available, they are allowing their work to contribute far beyond the original findings. Making research data more accessible also fosters transparency and trust in their work, enables other researchers to reproduce and validate their findings, and ultimately, contributes to the pace of scientific discovery by allowing others to reuse and build on top of the data. Fortunately, cloud technology has made it easier than ever to share data across major research institutions. Empowered by tools that include Microsoft Azure, researchers are relying more and more on digital collaboration and open source software to drive scientific breakthroughs.

Watch this video to learn how researchers at Australian National University (ANU) are using Azure to build on each other’s findings and avoid a siloed approach to data that leads to slower research pipelines.

Dow uses vision AI at the edge to boost employee safety and security with Azure

Dow is a leader in materials science, focused on delivering innovative and sustainable customer-centric solutions. An important priority for the chemical company is safety, and Microsoft Azure played a crucial role in enabling preventative leak detection with the goal of zero safety-related events at its facilities. The initial solution leverages Azure AI to analyze live video and uses an app to trigger notifications to the operator if it detects a possible leak. Azure Video Analyzer, coupled with Azure DevOps, provided a quick, low-latency, low-resource, and easily scalable solution. Machine learning ensures the model is continually refined, so it gets better with each interaction.

Best of all, this model can be leveraged for other applications, such as detecting when employees aren’t wearing proper PPE in industrial locations, and security monitoring.
