Visual Scientific Exploration at Blue Brain, and Beyond
DescriptionScientific exploration relies on building software that combines data integration, analysis and interactive visualization to build, modify and navigate through large scientific datasets. For this, Blue Brain built and open-sourced the Blue Brain BioExplorer. The Blue Brain BioExplorer was originally developed to answer key scientific questions related to the Coronavirus as a use case and to deliver a visualization tool. Today, the BioExplorer allows reconstructing, visualizing, exploring and describing in detail the structure and function of highly-detailed biological structures such as molecular systems, neurons, astrocytes, blood vessels, and more. The BioExplorer is built as an extension of Brayns, the official underlying and generic rendering platform that was designed to easily adapt to all fields of science. In this very visual talk, we will present EPFL's Blue Brain Project, and explain how we could architecture and build the application that is now being used to produce high quality and high fidelity media, as well as interactive and immersive experiences of the digital reconstruction of the mouse brain. I will finally discuss the impact of using real raw data for science communication and dissemination.
