Duke University to use Microsoft s Cloud technology for research
New York July 10 (IANS) Duke University has announced a new collaboration with Microsoft in several areas including research and cognitive services using Microsoft Azure -- a cloud computing platform.
To support the effort Microsoft is committed to building a dedicated "Innovation Hub" in the Chesterfield building in downtown Durham where it will be near researchers from Duke s schools of medicine and engineering and the Duke Clinical Research Institute the university said in a statement on Monday.
Duke already uses Microsoft cloud technology but the new collaboration will accelerate the use of Azure to advance healthcare research educational programs and university operations.
"We can leverage all of the work they have done and we can build on it. For example Microsoft s efforts to improve radiology with data science can be built upon and advanced by Duke radiologists and data scientists " said Lawrence Carin from Duke University.
Azure has in place the data protections needed to maintain health records privacy Carin said. Azure cognitive services would include speech-to-text natural language processing and machine vision.
Cloud computing offers several advantages for the researchers and staff. It has essentially limitless data storage and processing power along with the flexibility to apply the right computing resources to any given problem.
"With Microsoft s support we will also enable graduate students in research labs to access the rich set of Microsoft Azure services. The computational power that this will bring to our research endeavour is immense " Carin added.
