High-resolution mapping of the human brain involves managing and interpreting a colossal amount of data. Shoaib Mufti, the head of data and technology at the Allen Institute for Brain Science, described the organization’s approach to these challenges in a recent interview. The project uses artificial intelligence to analyze millions of data points from brain imaging and genetic data, akin to the Human Genome Project.

Allen Institute’s AI-driven brain decoding

Mufti’s team at the Allen Institute is aiming to map the human brain at a cellular level. Their work has led to the creation of a genome-scale Allen Mouse Brain Atlas, a comprehensive, freely accessible online resource for neuroscience research, housing over 20,000 genes and more than 650,000 images.

The Allen Institute uses several AWS Cloud services to manage and analyze the vast amounts of data. They use Amaz…
