The beta release of the TotalView 8.13 parallel debugger for parallel applications written in C, C++ and Fortran features a combination of capabilities for pinpointing and fixing hard-to-find bugs, such as race conditions, memory leaks and memory overruns.
Moab Task Manager a localized decision-making tool within Moab’s HPC Suite that is designed to increase the efficiency of short computing jobs by enabling high-speed throughput. C
Despite widespread fascination with sharks, the world’s oldest ocean predators have long been a genetic mystery. The first deep dive into a great white shark’s genetic code has fished up big surprises behind a design so effective it has barely changed since before dinosaurs roamed. Many of the endangered great white shark’s proteins involved in an array of different functions — including metabolism — match humans more closely ...
Three nanosatellites, known as Cubesats, are deployed from a Small Satellite Orbital Deployer (SSOD) attached to the Kibo laboratory’s robotic arm at 7:10 a.m. (EST) on November 19, 2013. Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency astronaut Koichi Wakata monitored the satellite deployment while operating the Japanese robotic arm from inside Kibo.
On a recent cold afternoon in New York, a young couple with two small children in tow stepped off a busy sidewalk at Manhattan’s Columbus Circle into the quiet modernist home of the city’s Museum of Art and Design. Soon, Sofia Kanso-Robertson, 6, and her brother Iskander, 2, were slowly spinning on a low round platform inside a makeshift 3-D scanner made from a Kinect camera tied to a yellow rope....
A new algorithm designed at the University of Toronto has the power to profoundly change the way we find photos among the billions on social media sites such as Facebook and Flickr. This month, the United States Patent and Trademark Office will issue a patent on this technology. The search tool uses tag locations to quantify relationships between individuals, even those not tagged in any given photo.
Cray Inc. now offers a Big Data framework that gives customers the ability to more easily implement and run Apache Hadoop on their Cray XC30 supercomputers.
The Multiphysics 4.4 from COMSOL Inc. is the latest version of the company’s powerful platform for the modeling and simulation of electrical, mechanical, fluid and chemical applications.
Scientists have, for the first time, demonstrated that climate models are able to simulate past abrupt changes in the Earth’s climate– giving more confidence in predictions of future global climate change.
Amazon.com is working on a way to get packages to customers in 30 minutes or less - via self-guided drone. Consider it the modern version of a pizza delivery boy, minus the boy.
How far away is spiral galaxy NGC 4921? Although presently estimated to be about 310 million light years distant, a more precise determination could be coupled with its known recession speed to help humanity better calibrate the expansion rate of the entire visible universe.
Researchers at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) are involved in the design of a robotic arm for precise guidance of the insertion of needles, catheters and surgical instruments in procedures of minimally invasive surgery.
A team of researchers from the IMP Vienna together with collaborators from the Vienna University of Technology established a new microscopy technique which greatly enhances resolution in the third dimension.
They are the coldest objects in the Universe and are so fragile that even a single photon can heat and destroy them. Known as Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs) and consisting of just a cluster of atoms, it has up until now been impossible to measure and control these remarkable forms of matter simultaneously.
The 4U two-node FatTwin platform features two ultra-high-performance compute nodes, each supporting dual Intel XeonE5-2600 v2 “Ivy Bridge” processors (up to 130W TDP) and up to six Intel Many Integrated Core (MIC) based Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessors.
