The Russian Ministry of Education and Science has awarded a $3.4 million “mega-grant” to Alexei Klimentov, Physics Applications Software Group Leader at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory, to develop new “big data” computing tools for the advancement of science.
Since he was a graduate student, Armando Solar-Lezama, an associate professor in MIT’s Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, has been working on a programming language called Sketch, which allows programmers to simply omit some of the computational details of their code. Sketch then automatically fills in the gaps.
It used to be that "hacking" was just a type of crime, a computer break-in. But today, the term is also part of a growing — and perfectly legal — mainstay of the tech sector. Computer programming competitions known as "hackathons" have spread like viruses in recent years as ways for geeks, nerds and designers to get together to eat pizza, lose sleep and create something new.
Alan Turing: His Work and Impact, was selected for the top honor, R.R. Hawkins Award, at the 38th annual PROSE Awards. Celebrating the centenary of his birth, the bookwas praised as a fitting tribute to the life of the legendary mathematical and scientific genius, considered to be the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence.
NAG Library for Java Release 2 enables the calling of precisely 1,784 mathematical and statistical routines to aid complex computation, and enhanced error reporting enables increased precision from computation results. It provides abstract classes for callback functions.
Computational scientists now have the opportunity to apply for the upcoming Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing (ATPESC), to take place from August 3-15, 2014. The program provides intensive hands-on training on the key skills, approaches and tools to design, implement, and execute computational science and engineering applications on current supercomputers and the HPC systems of the future.
Computer scientists at Trinity College Dublin and IBM Dublin have made a significant advance that will allow companies to reduce associated greenhouse gas emissions, drive down costs, and minimize network delays depending on their wishes.
Are you a B.Sc. or M.Sc. student in computer science, mathematics, engineering or physics, interested in working on advanced IT projects at CERN for two full months during the summer? CERN openlab has R&D activities on multithreaded programming, data acquisition systems, large scale databases, data analytics, and cloud computing that are open to students who will have completed at least three years of full-time studies.
Britain has tried to make good by one of its most famous sons, posthumously pardoning Alan Turing for a gay sex conviction which tarnished the brilliant career of the code breaker credited with helping win the war against Nazi Germany and laying the foundation for the computer age.
The ArrayFire 2.0 software library features full commercial support for OpenCL devices, including all AMD APUs and AMD FirePro graphics, Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors, CUDA GPUs from NVIDIA, and other OpenCL devices from Imagination, Freescale, ARM, Altera and Apple.
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.
The Cray Compiler Environment (CCE) is available on the Cray CS300 line of cluster supercomputers and is HPC-optimized for highly parallel environments. It supports OpenACC and is designed to support x86 processors, NVIDIA Tesla GPU accelerators and Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors.
Snakes that soar — not winged serpents out of mythology, but actual snakes that can glide surprisingly long distances — inhabit the tropical forests of India and Southeast Asia. And even for scientists, they’ve been a bit of a mystery. How is it that these long, skinny reptiles manage to glide so far?
Hiroshi Yamauchi, who ran Nintendo for more than 50 years and led the Japanese company's transition from traditional playing-card maker to video game giant, has died. He was 85. Yamauchi was company president from 1949 to 2002, and engineered Nintendo's global growth, including developing the early Family Computer consoles and Game Boy portables.
Rogue Wave Software announced August 22, 2013, that it acquired OpenLogic, a provider of cloud-based open source software management solutions, support and consulting. Broomfield, Colorado-based OpenLogic offers a platform, OpenLogic Exchange (OLEX), designed to enable software development teams to leverage the breadth and innovation of open source software.
NVIDIA announced that it has acquired the Portland Group (PGI), an independent supplier of high performance compilers and tools. PGI and its staff will continue to operate under the PGI flag – developing OpenACC, CUDA Fortran and CUDA x86 for multicore x86 and, of course, GPGPUs.
UCLA computer science professor Amit Sahai and a team of researchers have designed a system to encrypt software so that it only allows someone to use a program as intended while preventing any deciphering of the code behind it. This is known in computer science as "software obfuscation," and it is the first time it has been accomplished.
TCP, the transmission control protocol, is one of the core protocols governing the Internet: If counted as a computer program, it's the most widely used program in the world. One of TCP's main functions is to prevent network congestion by regulating the rate at which computers send data. I
BugBuster: one bot can test almost every function on a website. This tiny revolution for web developers means great gains in time and reliability. To overcome problems that come with using websites, which can be annoying and bring extensive financial consequences for large companies, the start-up BugBuster has invented the first intelligent tool that finds out on its own how to interact...
Rogue Wave Software, an independent provider of cross-platform software development tools and embedded components for the next-generation of high performance computing (HPC) applications, has announced a strategic partnership with Bright Computing. With this partnership agreement, Bright Computing will bundle Rogue Wave’s TotalView advanced debugger with its Bright Cluster Manager product.
ZURICH - Video compositing to create special effects, replace backgrounds or combine multiple takes of an actor's performance is an integral, but highly labor-intensive, part of modern film making. Researchers at Disney Research, Zürich, however, have found an innovative way to create these composite videos that is simple, fast, and easy to use.
