Transforming radiology workflows with clinical decision support powered by AWS
The healthcare technology (HealthTech) startup contextflow uses AWS to power its clinical decision support system that can help radiologists diagnose patients faster and with more accuracy. The software can search, retrieve, and compare historical diagnostic data to help guide radiologists in writing reports. It is currently being utilized to analyze lung computed tomography (CT) scans for interstitial lung diseases (ILD), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and lung cancer screenings.
Analyze terabyte-scale geospatial datasets with Dask and Jupyter on AWS
Terabytes of Earth Observation (EO) data are collected each day, quickly leading to petabyte-scale datasets. By bringing these datasets to the cloud, users can use the compute and analytics resources of the cloud to reliably scale with growing needs. In this post, we show you how to set up a Pangeo solution with Kubernetes, Dask, and Jupyter notebooks step-by-step on Amazon Web Services (AWS), to automatically scale cloud compute resources and parallelize workloads across multiple Dask worker nodes.
Elevating cloud security to address regulatory requirements for security and disaster recovery
Learn how you can build a foundation of security objectives practices, including a business continuity and disaster recovery plan, that can be adapted to meet a dynamic policy environment and support the missions of national computer security incident response teams (CSIRT), operators of essential services (OES), digital service providers (DSP), and other identified sector organizations.
How one Caribbean university digitally transformed and saved money by migrating to the cloud
Moving to AWS helped The University of the West Indies, Open Campus (UWIOC) improve performance of systems and operational efficiency while optimizing costs. Learn how UWIOC migrated more than 70 virtual machines, 10 applications, and five networks, plus their Moodle learning management system (LMS) and the UWIOC website, while saving 50 percent total cost of ownership along the way.
How Bucknell IT got 40 percent of their time back by moving ERP to the cloud
“Action cannot be completed because the system is out of date.” Every technology user understands the frustration of getting this message. When Bucknell University turned to the cloud to modernize their Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, they found unexpected gifts along the way: more cost savings, better solutions, and best of all, new “found” time to devote to high impact projects.
Empowering adults and children to make the internet a safer place

This year on Tuesday, February 9, Safer Internet Day marks their 18th year, this year focusing on the topic, “An internet we trust: Exploring reliability in the online world.”
An introduction to AWS for research IT: Getting started in the cloud
The cloud can help researchers process complex workloads, store and analyze enormous amounts of data, collaborate globally, and accelerate research and innovation. For research IT, Amazon Web Services (AWS) can help build scalable, cost-effective, and flexible environments while still maintaining the governance and guardrails for security and compliance. Following best practices, AWS allows for centralized management of resources, improved security and compliance of research workloads, and can save costs and accelerate innovation. What are some common questions from research IT customers?
How Fred Hutch unlocks siloed data with AWS and open-source software
Using AWS and open-source software, Fred Hutch built a single, user-friendly, browser-based solution, Motuz, to streamline and simplify upload of large quantities of data. Motuz helped Fred Hutch de-silo its data and make it shareable and accessible.
