Presentation Transcript

  1. Randy Ellis, Ph.D. Open System Architecture for Image-Guided Therapy:Goals of this Workshop

  2. Reminder: Software is Expensive and Complex An extensive 1994 study of thousands of US industrial projects found: • 31% were abandoned before delivery • Over 57% were a minimum of 189% over budget Since then: overall, limited progress WHY?  Inherent complexity Source: The Standish Group

  3. Some Guiding Principles • Open Source: • Collaborative process • Free to commercialization • Robust: • Can utilize existing infrastructure (e.g., NAMIC/Kitware) • Automated testing of all changes • Extensible: • Expect to add new imaging modalities • Expect new interventional procedures

  4. Workshop Goals • Share our experiences in building IGT components systems • Identify engineering infrastructure pieces that are: • Missing and need to be built; or • Exist and need to be made [easily] available to the community • Identify short and long term needs that existing national centers (e.g., NCIGT and NA-MIC) can help address • Identify industry-academic partnerships that would help accelerate research without compromising the industry partner's market advantage • Raise awareness of the benefits of "Open" Source/Science/Interfaces

  5. Reminder: Human Genome Project • Competing interests: USA academics, international academics, industry • NIH: key in developing an open repository for sequences and subsequences • Journals partnered: required deposition prior to publication • Control Mechanism: “The Invisible Hand” (cf. Adam Smith, 1776)
