Moore’s Law recently turned 50 years old, and many have used the milestone to tout its virtues, highlight positive results that stem from it, as well as advance suggestions on what the future dividends will be and boldly project the date for its inevitable demise. Moore’s Law is an observation that has undoubtedly inspired us to innovate to the pace it predicts. It has challenged us to do so. Therefore, I think of it as Moore’s drumbeat.

IBM Watson is collaborating with more than a dozen leading cancer institutes to accelerate the ability of clinicians to identify and personalize treatment options for their patients. The institutes will apply Watson's advanced cognitive capabilities to reduce from weeks to minutes the ability to translate DNA insights, understand a person's genetic profile and gather relevant information from medical literature to personalize treatment.
Protecting the world from destruction by asteroids sounds like superhuman power, but NASA scientists work tirelessly to ensure that humans today are protected from this potential harm. Asteroids need to be hunted in order to identify which ones may endanger Earth, and analyzing the big data puzzle of asteroid detection has been an arduous process. That is, until the power of crowdsourcing was discovered.

Riedel-Kruse and his team are enabling people to interact with biological materials and perform experiments the way they interact with computers today — called interactive biotechnology. They have created three related projects that begin to define this new field. In the most far-reaching project, Riedel-Kruse created a robotic biology cloud lab capable of carrying out remote-control experiments.
For many computationally-intensive applications, such as simulation, seismic processing and rendering, overall speed is still the name of the game. However, new branch of HPC is gaining momentum. IDC calls it “High Performance Data Analysis” (HPDA for short). Essentially, it’s the union of big data and HPC. How will these architectures evolve? Let’s start by looking at the data.
