Supplying energy to the American people is an increasingly complex task. These complexities include not just the conversion of the various forms of energy (oil, gas, wind, hydropower, etc.) into useful forms (transportation fuel and electricity) but also moving the more useful form to where it can be used (transmission). Economics and government regulations complicate the matter further.

The brain’s repute took a big hit in 1997 when an IBM supercomputer defeated world chess champion Gary Kasparov in a match reported around the world. But, in the second round, the brain is back. A Sandia National Laboratories-supported workshop in Albuquerque called NICE, for Neuro-Inspired Computational Elements workshop, discussed ways to use the brain’s superior ability to send electrical signals along massively parallel channels
We believe quantum computing may help solve some of the most challenging computer science problems, particularly in machine learning. Machine learning is all about building better models of the world to make more accurate predictions. If we want to cure diseases, we need better models of how they develop.
A full 90 percent of all the data in the world has been generated over the last two years. The internet companies are awash with data that can be grouped and utilised. Is this a good thing? An increasing amount of data is becoming available on the internet. Each and every one of us is constantly producing and releasing data about ourselves.

The SC International Conference for High Performance Computing Networking, Storage, and Analysis Steering Committee is seeking future leaders for the SC Conference Series. Nominations for the SC16 General Chair and two openings on the SC Steering committee are now open.
Intel joined the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in a National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) partnership, along with 10 other industry leaders: Cisco, HP, HyTrust, McAfee, Microsoft, RSA, Splunk, Symantec, Vanguard and Venafi.
It is my great privilege to serve as the General Chair of SC this year. This conference, now in its 26th year, combines a deep regard for quality and tradition with a commitment to innovation that ensures SC stays relevant in a community that fundamentally reinvents itself at least once a decade. As an attendee, this means that you can rely upon the familiar favorites you've come to expect while looking forward to discovering something new.
Mellanox Technologies, a supplier of end-to-end interconnect solutions for servers and storage systems, announced its intent to acquire privately held Kotura, a leading innovator and developer of advanced silicon photonics optical interconnect technology for high-speed networking applications.
The SC13 international conference for high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis, is accepting nominations for three distinguished awards that will be presented at the conference in November.The IEEE Seymour Cray Computer Science and Engineering Award, the IEEE Sidney Fernbach Memorial Award and the ACM-IEEE Ken Kennedy Award will be announced at SC13, to be held November 17 – 22 at the Colorado Convention Center.
OrangeFS is a parallel virtual file system designed for high performance computing (HPC), big data and data intensive applications, such as research, genomics and seismic. OrangeFS High Performance Cloud Storage is available on AWS Marketplace as a Community version, or as an Advanced (Provisioned IOPS) version, with the consistent performance of Provisioned IOPs and advanced support from Omnibond.
Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a software algorithm that detects and isolates cyber-attacks on networked control systems – which are used to coordinate transportation, power and other infrastructure across the United States.
Quantum computers work by manipulating quantum objects as, for example, individual photons, electrons or atoms and by harnessing the unique quantum features. Not only do quantum computers promise a dramatic increase in speed over classical computers in a variety of computational tasks; they are designed to complete tasks that even a supercomputer would not be able to handle. Although, in recent...
The Human Brain Project, recently awarded a 10-year grant by the EU Commission, will pull together all our existing knowledge about the human brain and to reconstruct the brain, piece by piece, in supercomputer-based models and simulations. In a special session at the 2013 International Supercomputing Conference, scientists working on the Human Brain Project will discuss their vision and roadmap for computing.
The EMC Data Protection Suite is a "survival kit" designed to provide flexibility and reduce risk by simplifying the acquisition, implementation and use of backup and archive solutions, while lowering total cost of ownership. It delivers a portfolio of data protection services to support virtual and physical environments and tight integration with EMC purpose-built backup appliances.
The Cray XC30-AC air cooled supercomputer is designed to enable users in fields such as manufacturing, life sciences and energy to apply supercomputing resources toward solving challenges that can only be addressed with high-end HPC technology.
The EMC ViPR Software-Defined Storage platform is designed to manage storage infrastructure (the Control Plane) and the data residing within that infrastructure (the Data Plane), allowing service providers and IT departments to drive toward the operational model of web-scale data centers without building a custom environment.
A new initiative aims to unlock the potential for scientific and social benefits in digital games. The £1.2 million project aims to bring the UK digital games industry closer to scientists, teachers and healthcare workers to harness their ingenuity and innovation to contribute to advances in science and society.

The human cerebellum is a mysterious thing. Responsible for motor control, it’s the reason why we can walk, run, or learn to hit a baseball without having to consciously think through the mechanics of what we’re doing. These are some of the tasks that robots — with their ‘electronic’ brains — struggle with most.
