Tetra Data & AI Workspace

🚧

IMPORTANT

Tetra Data & AI Workspace is in beta release currently and is activated for customers through coordination with TetraScience. The feature may require changes in future Tetra Data Platform (TDP) releases. For more information, or to activate the Tetra Data & AI Workspace in your TDP environment, contact your customer success manager (CSM).

Tetra Data & AI Workspace helps you colocate your replatformed and engineered scientific data with analysis applications, and then correlate analysis results through Tetra Data Appsβ€”all while maintaining a source of record in the Tetra Scientific Data and AI Cloud.

By using the Data & AI Workspace page to access your organization's configured Tetra Data Apps, you can do the following:

  • Visualize and analyze scientific data to generate analysis results
  • Verify the data as part of the automated scientific workflow
  • Easily associate primary data with analysis output
  • Annotate scientific data to support AI/ML model training
  • Generate predictions and performance AI/ML model inference and continuous learning

To configure Tetra Data Apps for an organization, see Tetra Data Apps.

NOTE

There are two types of Tetra Data Apps:

  • Linked Data Apps run as external SaaS applications outside of the Tetra Data Platform (TDP).
  • Embedded Data Apps run in the cloud and are configured for SaaS application streaming back to the TDP.

Your organization's analysis software determines the Data App type that you use.

πŸ“˜

NOTE

For Embedded Data Apps, each app's tile contains a number indicating how many instances are available to connect to. If no instances are available, this either means resources are scaling and one will be available shortly, or the maximum number of instances configured has been reached. To adjust the Maximum Users setting for Embedded Data Apps for your organization, see Edit Embedded Data Apps Settings for Your Org.

Start a New Session From the Search Page

To start a new Data & AI Workspace session for an Embedded Data App from the Search page, do the following:

  1. Sign in to the TDP. Then, in the left navigation menu, choose Search.
  2. On the Search page, filter the files that you want to use in your Data & AI Workspace session. For instructions, see Search .
  3. Next to Bulk Operations, select the Data & AI Workspace icon (this icon matches the Data & AI Workspace monitor icon from the left navigation menu).
  4. Select the Embedded Data App that you would like to open the files in. Then, select the Open [#] Filebutton. A new Data & AI Workspace session is created. It may take around a minute to open depending on the size of files selected.

πŸ“˜

NOTE

The selected files are bundled together in a new data package that will be associated with your session and are loaded to the Documents\tetrascience_download folder.

Open a Previous Data & AI Workspace Session

πŸ“˜

NOTE

It is not possible to reconnect to an existing session by selecting additional files from the Search page. Any existing sessions will always be terminated before opening files in the Data App.

To open a previous Data & AI Workspace session, do the following:

  1. Open the Data & AI Workspace page.
  2. Select the Sessions tab. A list of previous sessions appears.
  3. Find the session that you want to reopen. Then, select Open on the far right of that session's row. This will combine all of the previously selected files, and all of the analysis files uploaded back to TDP into a new data package to be used as part of your new session. If you click Open on an active session for your user, it will resume the existing session, not create a new one.

πŸ“˜

NOTE

The Open button is deactivated in the following situations:

  • There is no available capacity for Embedded Data Apps.
  • The Embedded Data Apps has been deactivated, or it is in the process of updating.

Filtering Sessions

Sessions for all organization users are listed chronologically from newest to oldest. To help find the sessions you are looking for, the Sessions tab has two filters:

  • A User filter to limit the sessions to a particular Login User.
  • A Start date / End date filter to limit the sessions to a specific date range.

Session Information

Each session row displays the following information:

  • An application icon and name
  • An activity dot:
    • Grey means the session has ended
    • Green means the session is still running
  • When the session started
  • How long the session has been running for (or how long it ran for)
  • The user who started the session
  • The number of files the data package associated with the Data App session
  • The number of files uploaded back to TDP as part of the session

πŸ“˜

NOTE

You can click on a session's # files downloaded or # files uploaded options to navigate to the Search page with filters pre-applied to show the specific files that were opened as part of the session.

Upload Files to the TDP From an Embedded Data App

To upload files from an Embedded Data App to the TDP, save the files at the root level of the Documents\tetrascience_upload folder in the Embedded Data App. The files are then uploaded to the TDP automatically within 15 seconds.

Keep in mind the following when uploading files from an Embedded Data App:

  • If no files from the TDP were previously opened in the Embedded Data App, the uploaded file will contain no inherited attributes .
  • The uploaded file's source type will indicate the type of Data App that the file originated from (for example, flowjo-data-app).
  • All uploaded files will have the following labels attached, which indicate the origin of the file and can help limit which data pipelines get triggered during upload.
    • ts_data_package_id: {data_package_id}
    • ts_data_analysis: true
    • ts_project_id: {project_id}
    • ts_project_name: {project_name}
