Advanced statistical methods for exoplanet detection - $50,000
These researchers will organize a multidisciplinary workshop of experts in order to study the application of state-of-the-art statistical decision theory to the detection of faint exoplanets. They anticipate enabling the detection of exoplanets at least an order of magnitude fainter than is currently possible.

Scalable neuroimaging initiative: Tools for sharing and analyzing neuroimaging data - $50,000
Scientific imaging data are being acquired at an enormous rate, but data sharing is typically limited to descriptions (metadata) and results selected by the original investigators. This study proposes a distributed computing framework to enable quantitative access to the experimental conditions and image data and thus accelerate multi-institutional scientific progress.

Intelligent interactive imaging: Coupling smart spatial visualization interfaces with real-time second-harmonic generation microscopy - $75,000
This project couples research in optics (second-harmonic generation microscopy) and computer science (3-D user interfaces and data visualization) to explore a new paradigm of intelligent interactive imaging. The research tightly integrates image acquisition and image analysis via a novel real-time interactive visualization environment that combines human and machine intelligence.
