Abstract

As data sets, both acquired from scanners and those generated from complex simulations, grow in size and complexity, researchers continue to push the boundaries of the amount of data that can be viewed, processed and analyzed interactively. It soon becomes clear that today's algorithms and systems must be scaled through the use of parallelism in order to create viable and cost effective solutions. But for parallelism to be most effective, it must be conceived and designed for efficiency through-out every individual component of the processing and computational pipeline. In fact, a parallel architecture must be preserved throughout the whole process in order to avoid single pipeline bottlenecks.
