The Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) has been providing a diverse array of researchers with the ability to run petascale simulations on some of the world’s top systems. The group behind the effort released a report recently that highlighted some of the successes, offering a case for the power of simulation to advance science, industry and social goals like shifting to clean energy.
The current generation of petascale supercomputers are generating enormous quantities of data, and creating unprecedented challenges in managing it. The next generation of multi-petaflop, and eventually exaflop supercomputers, will take these challenges to the next level. Galen Shipman, who heads the Technology Integration group at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) talks about the data management technologies being employed at OLCF today and what will be needed to support their future exascale machines.
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.
Johns Hopkins University researchers are developing a specialized machine for uncovering hidden patterns in data; and Appro HyperPower Cluster will support data analysis at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. We recap those stories and more in our weekly wrapup.
The nascent GPGPU computing world received another boost today with the commercial release of Jacket 1.0, a GPU engine designed to accelerate computing and visualization for MATLAB users.
Google scientists build neural network with visual smarts.
A sophisticated human model called “AustinMan” at TACC is helping scientists understand how microwaves interact with our bodies.
VSSC in India is demonstrating performance, efficiency and power benefits of heterogeneous systems.
The Pleiades supercomputer at NASA Ames Research center has enabled one of the largest simulations of galaxy formation.
Analyst Jon Peedie produced a report on the GPU market, noting that reports of the death of dGPUs are greatly exaggerated.
