ATLANTA, GA, Dec. 4 — Emcien Corp., a leading provider of pattern-based analytics solutions, announced today the addition of internationally renowned High-Performance Computing luminary Dr. David A. Bader to the Emcien Advisory Board, thereby lending his expertise to Emcien’s next generation of solutions designed for massive-scale analytics in real time in multiple sectors, including government, financial services, healthcare, medical research, and insurance. Dr. Bader is a recognized leader in designing large-scale parallel algorithms for data-intensive problems, such as social network analysis, as well as for his decades-long research and innovation in data-intensive computing.
“This technology is uniquely positioned at the intersection of high-performance computing and graph analytics, so I am pleased to join Emcien’s Advisory Board,” said Dr. Bader. “Emcien’s technological approach tackles one of the biggest challenges with Big Data, namely what are the right questions one should be asking? Graph analytics quickly discovers the value within massive datasets by making connections between disparate, seemingly unrelated bits of information, and by finding the highest-ranked of these connections to focus on for critical insights.”
Dr. Bader is a professor in the School of Computational Science and Engineering, College of Computing and Executive Director for High Performance Computing at Georgia Institute of Technology. His interests are at the intersection of high-performance computing and real-world applications, including data analytics.
“Companies are facing a data overload, and solutions that combine graph analytics with combinatorial optimization are critical to delivering the true value hidden in an organization’s Big Data,” said Radhika Subramanian, CEO, Emcien. “Therefore, we are pleased Dr. Bader is joining the Emcien Advisory Board. His expertise in High Performance Computing adds to our relentless focus on developing the best-in-class suite of patented pattern-based analytics solutions and enables us to deliver significant value in the form of operational efficiency, new sources of revenue, and an unsurpassed competitive advantage to organizations across sectors.”
Dr. Bader received his Ph.D. in 1996 from The University of Maryland, is an IEEE and AAAS Fellow, and his research is supported through highly-competitive research awards, primarily from NSF, NIH, DARPA, and DOE. Dr. Bader serves on the Steering Committees of the IPDPS and HiPC conferences. He has served on the Research Advisory Council for Internet2 and has chaired several of the flagship professional meetings in parallel and high-performance computing. He is an associate editor-in-chief of the Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing (JPDC) and serves as an associate editor for several high impact publications, including ACM Journal of Experimental Algorithmics (JEA), Parallel Computing, and Journal of Computational Science, and has been an associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems (TPDS). He was elected as chair of the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Parallel Processing (TCPP) and as chair of the SIAM Activity Group in Supercomputing (SIAG/SC). He has co-authored over 100 articles in peer-reviewed journals and conferences, and his main areas of research are in parallel algorithms, combinatorial optimization, and massive-scale social networks.

In quieter times, sounding the bell of funding big science with big systems tends to resonate further than when ears are already burning with sour economic and national security news. For exascale's future, however, the time could be ripe to instill some sense of urgency....
In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

The study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
