COMSOL Expands in Shanghai
News Dec 19, 2015
COMSOL has announced the expansion of its office in Shanghai, China. A larger facility enables continued expansion and recruitment of technical and sales staff to keep pace with the growing COMSOL® software user base in China and increasing demand for COMSOL Multiphysics® and COMSOL Server™ products. Services in Shanghai include sales, technical support, training sessions, and on-site workshops and customer visits.
“We are very excited to expand our office in Shanghai,” said Lei Chen, Managing Director of COMSOL Co., Ltd. in Shanghai. “Training sessions in areas such as multiphysics, mechanical, electrical, chemical and fluid flow will be offered in our new in-house educational facility to teach customers new to COMSOL Multiphysics and COMSOL Server products. More office space also allows us to expand our technical support team to better assist our customers in China. Additionally, we are expanding our localization team to provide more technical material (documentation, model examples) in Chinese.”
The Shanghai office expansion coincides with the latest release of COMSOL Multiphysics® with a more powerful Application Builder and COMSOL Server™. The new version provides simulation experts with a cutting edge user experience in simulation app design and app sharing by integrating highly productive model building, app design, and deployment tools that allow their simulation applications to be shared with users everywhere.
With the Application Builder, companies can communicate across multiple departments, knowing that the simulation specialist is able to maintain control, enforce quality standards, and ensure that the results can be trusted.
“Expansion of COMSOL Shanghai office allows us to increase our high quality technical team to support the fast-growing COMSOL community in China,” said Gang (Martin) Wang, Technical Director of COMSOL Co., Ltd. in Shanghai. “Our applications team is dedicated to helping our users learn how to use COMSOL Multiphysics and COMSOL Server and build a wide array of easy-to-use yet powerful simulation apps.”
Algorithm Speeds Up Medical Image Analysis 1000 TimesNews
Medical image registration is a common technique that involves overlaying two images, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, to compare and analyze anatomical differences in great detail. Researchers have described a machine-learning algorithm that can register brain scans and other 3-D images more than 1,000 times more quickly using novel learning techniques.
Antarctic Worm and Machine Learning Help Identify Cerebral Palsy EarlierNews
A research team has released a study in the peer-reviewed journal BMC Bioinformatics showing that DNA methylation patterns in circulating blood cells can be used to help identify spastic cerebral palsy (CP) patients. The technique which makes use of machine learning, data science and even analysis of Antarctic worms, raises hopes for earlier targeted CP therapies.
Towards Personalized Medicine: One Type of Data is Not EnoughNews
To understand the biology of diseased organs researchers use different types of molecular data. One of the biggest computational challenges at the moment is integrating these multiple data types. A new computational method jointly analyses different types of molecular data and disentangles the sources of disease variability to guide personalized treatment.READ MORE
