High-performance computing can help a business to become more efficient and more productive. And, for a small business, HPC can be a game changer, helping it leapfrog ahead of the competition by reducing its costs and dramatically improving its time to market.
Are the political parties really all that different from one another? Can politicians rig the vote in their favor by filling in their own profiles on the voting recommendation website "smartvote"? Two EPFL Ph.D. students applied data analysis methods to information collected from the Swiss democratic system.
SGI has recently upgraded NASA's flagship supercomputer, Pleiades, with new, more powerful hardware in order to help meet the agency's increasing demand for high-end computing (HEC) resources.
In an unexpected mashup of financial and mechanical engineering, researchers have discovered that the same modeling used to forecast fluctuations in the stock market can be used to predict aspects of animal behavior.
This 4x image of Aphaenogaster senilis (ant worker) received an Image of Distinction designation in the 2013 Nikon Small World Photomicrophotography Competition, which recognizes excellence in photography with the optical microscope. The photo was composed using image stacking by Dimitri Seeboruth of Paris, France.
The introduction of newer sequencing methodologies, DNA microarrays and high-throughput technology has resulted in a deluge of large data sets that require new strategies to clean, normalize and analyze the data. All of these and more are covered in approximately 300 pages with extraordinary clarity and minimal mathematics.
An interview with PNNL’s Karol Kowalski, Capability Lead for NWChem Development - NWChem is an open source high performance computational chemistry tool developed for the Department of Energy at Pacific Northwest National Lab in Richland, WA. I recently visited with Karol Kowalski, Capability Lead for NWChem Development, who works in the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) at PNNL.
International Data Corporation (IDC) has announced the eighth round of recipients of the HPC Innovation Excellence Award at the SC'14 high performance computing (HPC) conference in New Orleans, Louisiana. The HPC Innovation Excellence Awards recognize noteworthy achievements by users of high performance computing technologies.

Researchers from Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign teamed with nuclear reactor designers and research laboratories in the United States and Europe to enable high-fidelity, cost-saving simulations to design the next-generation of nuclear reactors using the computational fluid dynamics code Nek5000.
The Center for Pediatric Genomic Medicine at Children's Mercy Hospitals Kansas City was the first genome center in the world to be created inside a children's hospital and one of the first to focus on genome sequencing and analysis for inherited childhood diseases.
For the US Army, and DoD and intelligence community as a whole, GIS Federal developed an innovative approach to quickly filter, analyze, and visualize big data from hundreds of data providers with a particular emphasis on geospatial data.
Researchers from NCSU conducted innovative research that will allow better prediction of thermal hydraulic behavior for current and future nuclear reactor designs.
Nexio simulation is a French SME located in Toulouse and specialized in electromagnetic simulation software for marine, space, defense and aeronautics domains applications.
The noise generated by civil air transport adversely impacts population centers near major airports. With the expected growth in air travel, community exposure to aircraft noise will increase considerably. To alleviate this problem, the Environmentally Responsible Aviation (ERA) project within NASA's Aeronautics Mission Research Directorate is working to simultaneously reduce aircraft noise, fuel consumption, and engine emissions.
Researchers used HPC resources were utilized to run and visualize a breakthrough simulation involving a long-track EF5 tornado embedded within a supercell.
