The White House hosted a press conference on Wednesday to announce a new public-private partnership that aims to bring HPC technology to the have-nots of the US manufacturing sector. Using a $2 million grant from the US Department of Commerce and an additional $2.5 million investment from industrial partners, a consortium has been formed to broaden the use of HPC technology by small manufacturing enterprises (SMEs).
What if researchers could access and share scientific simulation and modeling tools as easily as YouTube videos with the power of the cloud to drive it all? That’s the underlying premise for the HUBzero Platform for Scientific Collaboration, a cyberinfrastructure developed at Purdue University.
Using high performance computing to help modernize US manufacturing is one of those good ideas that seems inevitable but always just out of reach. A recent study confirms this, and provides a framework for strengthening the HPC landscape in this sector.
Virtual world games and other simulation programs offer life-saving potential.
The launch of Johns Hopkins University Center for Advanced Modeling in the Social, Behavioral and Health Sciences brings the power of computer-based simulation to bear on a host of real-world hardships.
Just as the electric power infrastructure was the key to a strong manufacturing base a century ago, a digital manufacturing infrastructure is critical to the future of American industry. Economic uncertainty and leaden growth have slowed innovation, but access to cutting edge tools such as high performance modeling and simulation provide a bold path forward, essentially transforming the way we build and thrive.
Outdated beliefs stand in the way of greater CFD adoption.
NOAA, ORNL to pursue advanced climate modeling with next-generation Cray supercomputer; and Swiss researchers develop a 3D model that can detect early stages of heart disease. We recap those stories and more in our weekly wrapup.
Even computer-unsavvy scientists will be able to use NASA Earth Exchange to collaborate on modeling and analysis of large data sets.
Aircraft parts manufacturer realizes cost, time savings and increased accuracy using cloud-supported HPC to simulate models for pre-production.
