Data sonification: from deep space research to improving lives through cancer research

“Data sonification is a powerful tool that can simplify how we analyse data…This technique can have real benefits to improve our lives, for example in cancer research,” says Domenico Vicinanza, PHD, GÉANT.

“We’re working with scientists to find ways of translating features from data into pitch, loudness and tone so that when listened to it can more easily identify differences between healthy cells and cancer cells.

“In PHD research, sonification can be used to highlight patterns in brain scans helping to forecast seizures far in advance.”
