Brain Images of Normal Subjects (BRAINS) bank and atlases are being developed with >1000 normal subjects from across the lifespan, to be expanded in the future to include subjects with disease. The images have been collected in centres across Scotland and are in a range of magnetic resonance (MR) sequences, including T1, T2, T2*, and fluid attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR). When BRAINS is released these will be searchable by a wide range of metadata, e.g. blood pressure<140/90; age=85; MMSE>26.
Unlike earthquakes, most volcanic eruptions are preceded by clear episodes of unrest. These precursory signals are the main basis for forecasting eruptive activity, yet the quality of such forecasts are unknown. I will describe physical and empirical models for eruption forecasting and our efforts to quantify their performance. This work includes a project to test models in real-time, using data from multiple experimental facilities and volcano observatories.

Open Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) have growing popularity and are predicted to have many applications in near future, as large scale distributed systems such as clouds become more widespread. However, A major practical limitation to open MAS is security.
Modern seismologists are presented with increasing amounts of data that may help them better understand the Earth’s structure and systems. However:
- they have to access these data from globally distributed sites via different transfer protocols and security mechanisms;
- to analyse these data they need to access remote powerful computing facilities;
- their experiments result in yet more data that need to be shared with scientific communities around the world.
