The scientific controversy over the so-called Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS) (also known, with a few key differences indicated later, as Abusive Head Trauma, AHT) is a rich and highly complex multifaceted topic.
It involves a wide range of academic disciplines: pediatrics, neurology, neuropathology, hematology, evidence-based medicine, biomechanics, statistics, epidemiology, psychology, among others. There are also ramifications in epistemology, medical ethics, criminal law, sociology...
I'm excited to present the project I've been working on at the International Brain Laboratory (IBL). Datoviz is an early-stage open-source high-performance GPU scientific visualization library based on Vulkan, the Khronos cross-platform low-level graphics API, which is 5 years old today!
Datoviz aims at providing a unified, language-agnostic platform for interactive visualization in both 2D and 3D, with support for GUIs and general-purpose GPU compute.
I have joined the International Brain Laboratory, a virtual laboratory gathering 21 neuroscience teams around the world. Half of the researchers are experimentalists, collecting data in the same experimental conditions, while the other half are theoreticians, analyzing the data. I'm working on the data architecture group allowing experimenters to organize and store their data, and theoreticians to make detailed queries for their analysis.
I'm pleased to announce the release of the IPython Cookbook, Second Edition, more than three years after the first edition. All 100+ recipes have been updated to the latest versions of Python, IPython, Jupyter, and all of the scientific packages.
