Stephen V. Cantrill - Computers in Patient Care: The Promise and the Challenge
Information technology has the potential to radically transform health care. Why has progress been so slow?

Samantha Kleinberg, Bud Mishra - Metamorphosis: the Coming Transformation of Translational Systems Biology
In the future computers will mine patient data to deliver faster, cheaper healthcare, but how will we design them to give informative causal explanations? Ideas from philosophy, model checking, and statistical testing can pave the way for the needed translational systems biology.

James C Phillips, John E. Stone - Probing Biomolecular Machines with Graphics Processors
The evolution of GPU processors and programming tools is making advanced simulation and analysis techniques accessible to a growing community of biomedical scientists.

Matthew T. Dougherty, Michael J. Folk, Erez Zadok, Herbert J. Bernstein, Frances C. Bernstein, Kevin W. Eliceiri, Werner Benger, Christoph Best - Unifying Biological Image Formats with HDF5
The biosciences need an image format capable of high performance and long-term maintenance. Is HDF5 the answer?

I had the honor to look look at Anton and speak with the engineering team in some detail. IMHO: Anton is an amazing piece of technology, made by brilliant people. The system architecture and development path are more than well throughout out. The prospects for substantial improvements is mostly an engineering exercise and there is still significant room for algorithmic improvements. Given all this and new technologies, there are likely additional paradigm shifts in performance, convenience and capacity to be expiated.

How is Anton doing in the filed?

What progress is there on Anton II?
