Clear Skies for Red Storm

March 31, 2006 7:00 pm | News | Comments

A new series of measurements — the next step in evolution of criteria to determine more accurately the efficiency of supercomputers — has rated Sandia National Laboratories’ Red Storm computer the best in the world in two of six new categories…

Sandia’s Z Machine Exceeds Two Billion Degrees Kelvin

February 28, 2006 7:00 pm | News | Comments

Sandia’s Z machine has produced plasmas that exceed temperatures of 2 billion degrees Kelvin — hotter than the interiors of stars. The unexpectedly hot output, if its cause were understood and harnessed, could eventually mean that smaller…

Heterogeneous Processing with Increased User Productivity

February 28, 2006 7:00 pm | Articles | Comments

Maximizing your return from parallel computing Ilya Mirman Scientists and engineers in virtually every field are turning to high-performance computing (HPC) to solve some of today’s most important and complex problems. With simulation replacing physical testing, more complex phenomena being modeled, and whole products or systems being simulated, technical computing...

Going Deep

February 28, 2006 7:00 pm | by Bill Weaver, Ph.D. | Articles | Comments

A new algorithm for robotic vision   Bill Weaver, Ph.D. Cruising around in my Nissan 350Z with the ground-effect neon thumping to the soundtrack, or careening around curves at over 170 MPH in my V12 Aston Martin DB9, are high on the short list of things that assuage my daily commute amid snarled traffic in the real world. In a relatively short period of time, the hefty cathode ray tube in our family room has been transformed from the keyhole view...

Breaking the High-throughput Bottleneck

February 28, 2006 7:00 pm | by Katrina M. Waters, Ph.D.; Mudita Singhal; Bobbie-Jo M. Webb-Robertson, Ph.D.; Eric G. Stephan; Julie M. Gephart | Articles | Comments

New tools help biologists integrate complex datasets Katrina M. Waters, Ph.D.; Mudita Singhal; Bobbie-Jo M. Webb-Robertson, Ph.D.; Eric G. Stephan; Julie M. Gephart It's not your high school biology lab. Today's burgeoning field of systems biology takes researchers away from traditional one-gene-at-a-time bench experiments in favor of combining technologies from fields such as genomics, mass spectrometry, imaging and informatics to advance their...

Grid and cluster computing for radiotherapy

February 28, 2006 7:00 pm | by Dr. P.W. Chin, Dr. D.G. Lewis and J.P. Giddy | Articles | Comments

Monte Carlo simulations bring much-needed accuracy to benefit cancer patients Dr. P.W. Chin, Dr. D.G. Lewis and J.P. Giddy Each year, over 11 million people are diagnosed with cancer, and seven million die of the disease. Radiation therapy, surgery, or a combination of the two, are able to cure about a third of these cases. Computer simulation of radiation transport is very useful for radiotherapy, both in research and in clinical routines,...

A Real Cliff Hanger: The high cost of saving money

February 28, 2006 7:00 pm | by Randy C. Hice | Blogs | Comments

The most expensive choice you will ever make Randy C. Hice Lessons are good, lessons are safe, and lessons are wise. I wish I could sometimes be as convincing when I see “bail-out projects.” This is when you get the call that a customer has been implementing an informatics project and things have gone woefully wrong. In every case I’ve seen in the past six or eight years, the root cause came down to money

Scrub That Disk Clean! A little conscientious use can really pay off

February 28, 2006 7:00 pm | by John R. Joyce, Ph.D. | Blogs | Comments

We have previously addressed how files are stored on disk media, with particular emphasis on systems running the MS Windows and DOS operating systems. As you may recall, at that time we were particularly interested in recovering files that had been deleted or were lost due to disk corruption errors. We were able to do this because these systems did not actually delete the files when you clicked “Delete” or dragged them to the recycle bin.
