             Synthetic Worlds
• Otherwise known as massive multiplayer interactive
• Over 5 million “inhabitants” today
   • Doubling every 18 months
   • About 2% of the Internet-connected population age 14-28
     spend more time in the synthetic world than in the real world
• Linked to the real world
   • Physical artifacts like playing cards
   • Ebay auctions for “money” and resources
      • Real people make real money
             PIC Simulation and Dose

• PIC Simulations to study proton acceleration using laser induced
   • Collaborating with JAERI and NTT of Japan who provide
     computational facilities, FCCC provides the clinical application
     of this research
   • Data transfer requirements of up to 10 Gb
   • Goal to provide theoretical basis for laser accelerated proton
     beam radiotherapy
• Monte Carlo Studies
   • Accurate dose calculation and treatment validation for
   • Typical data package for remote dose computation is about
     100-500 Mb
   • Goal is to establish network based treatment planning and dose
     verification for radiotherapy
            Remote Pathology

 • Using DVTS (Digital Video Transport
   System) at 30 Mbps, Multicast
 • Pathology faculty across four regional
   hospitals can conduct regular virtual
   consults with superior high quality images
   and minimal delay in transmitted slide
