Chalk up another win for Sequoia and high-performance computing. The IBM Blue Gene breaks two more records.
Japanese project marries brain research and robotics for big-time implications.
University of Oklahoma researcher zeros in on why some storms generate tornadoes while others don’t.
Huawei falls under scrutiny for deal with National Center for Computational Engineering.
Projects like the Sloan Digital Sky Survey have provided a wealth of cosmological data for scientists to explore in detail. However, making use of those terabytes — and generating far more data in the process of simulating and analyzing new concepts — is highlighting the bottlenecks for scientific computing at massive scale.
Advanced computing resources optimize the site selection of wind farms.
The first international effort to bring climate simulation software onto the next-generation exascale platforms got underway earlier this spring. The project, named Enabling Climate Simulation (ECS) at Extreme Scale, is being funded by the G8 Research Councils Initiative on Multilateral Research and brings together some of the heavy-weight organizations in climate research and computer science, not to mention some of the top supercomputers on the planet.
Researchers mitigate multicore challenges to refine current geological simulation capabilities.
Since the dawn of high performance computing, climate modeling has been one of its most demanding domains. The hunger for computational capability is unending, as researchers work to incorporate more of nature’s complexity into their models at higher resolutions. HPCwire talked with NOAA/GFDL Deputy Director Brian Gross and Venkatramani Balaji, head of the lab’s Modeling Systems Group.
Virtual world games and other simulation programs offer life-saving potential.
