We are launching an effort to gather medical imaging studies performed in a clinical setting and make all of the data within the study, along with the physician conclusions, searchable through a public web interface.
I'm really more of a technology guy although I have been involved in imaging and healthcare for some years. This is my first Big Data project.
Hi Don, I met you at the BDKC event and the Hackathon ... as a reference and pointer only, had the honor to take a picture with you and the pro tem mayor as a first placed team at the Hackathon on city data.
Hello KC Big Data Group. This online event might be of interest to some of you. Sorry for late notice as this is tomorrow.
R + Hadoop: Ask Bigger (and New) Questions and Get Better, Faster Answers

As it turns out, Hadoop runs on the Java Virtual Machine but can be programmed in languages other than Java. Lots of good things run on the JVM. Clojure, Jython and JRuby included. Saw MapReduce demonstrated on Riak DBMS at a Ruby meetup once. Riak was implemented mostly in Erlang. I hope to keep informed about what those Cloudera guys are doing with the new startup WibiData.
I met you at the Internet Marketing and Social Media Networks group. This looks like an extremely interesting topic. I believe I heard you say that the big challenge may be getting to all those silos of archived, isolated datasets. Personally, I am interested in learning some advanced programming skills and software technologies that would be applicable to this problem domain.
