MR Data Analysis - reality
1. Perform quality control
• Too much work to look at all images. I’m sure it’s perfect.
2. Develop a reproducible pipeline
• Limited to tools I know, reproducibility too difficult.
3. Run the pipeline
• Let’s skip running FreeSurfer, takes too much time on my laptop.
4. Share the data
• So what do I gain from this?

What is OpenNeuro?
• Science as a Service platform
• Similar to CBRAIN, MRI Cloud, Mint, and Flywheel
• Evolution of OpenfMRI.org
• Upload, manage, and share your data
• Based on Brain Imaging Data Structure
• Immutable dataset snapshots

Incentive for sharing data

OpenNeuro is free to use by anyone


under the agreement that the data will be made
publicly available after 18 months.

Future direction
• Running apps on outputs of other apps
• Higher level analyses
• More computational backend
• CBRAIN
• OSG
• XSEDE
