This month, the Texas Advanced Computer Center (TACC) at The University of Texas at Austin, US, along with technology partners HP and NVIDIA, will deploy Maverick — a powerful, high-performance visualization and data analytics resource for the open science and engineering community.
The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation announced an open call for applications for its brand-new Data-Driven Discovery Investigator competition. The foundation seeks individuals who exemplify multidisciplinary, data-driven science, coalescing natural sciences with methods from statistics and computer science.
From a distance, these stunning images look likes stars exploding, fireworks or simply striking patterns — but what you’re actually looking at are the hidden dimensions of the World Wide Web. Dr. Martyn Dade Robertson from Newcastle University creates the stunning artworks, known as Data Portraits.
"Everyone talks about the weather, but nobody ever does anything about it." Ray Russell, a computer science professor at Appalachian State University, didn't set out to prove Mark Twain's wisecrack wrong. He just wanted to get a better forecast for snowstorms across the High Country of Western North Carolina.
IDC, in close partnership with users and vendors in the technical high-performance computing (HPC) industry, created the HPC User Forum, a unique service that identifies buyer/user requirements and vendor capabilities within this market. This forum promotes the interests of HPC users worldwide in industry/commerce, government, and academia. The HPC User Forum is an extension of IDC's long-standing commitment to the global HPC community.
Late night in the Mojave Desert: Goldstone's 230-foot (70-meter) antenna tracks spacecraft day and night. This photograph was taken on Jan. 11, 2012.
The North American Aerospace Defense (NORAD) Command's Santa-tracking program logged 19.58 million unique visitors to its website on Christmas Eve.
During particularly intense solar storms Earth’s magnetosphere can “crack,” allowing charged particles to seep in and wreak havoc on the Earth’s technological infrastructure — an event called space weather. Scientists currently do not have the ability to accurately predict the severity of a space weather event or where it will have the most impact. But a team of researchers is hoping to change that.
It's tough to shop for techies. They already own everything with a plug or rechargeable battery. But fear not, a slew of unique technology gifts have hit the market just in time for Christmas.
For more than 50 years, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), and its predecessor, have tracked Santa’s flight using three high-tech systems- radar, satellites and Santa Cams.
The hot molten rock beneath Yellowstone National Park is two and one-half times larger than previously estimated, meaning the park's supervolcano has the potential to erupt with a force about 2,000 times the size of Mount St. Helens, according to a new study.
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.

A powerful Web-based system enabling people worldwide to better predict such things as damaging floods and potential effects of climate change is the goal of a $4.5 million, four-year project begun by Purdue University researchers.
Some of NASA's best and brightest will showcase more than 30 of the agency's exciting computational achievements at SC13, the international supercomputing conference, November 17-22, 2013, in Denver. Spectacular scientific visualizations from NASA supercomputing applications will appear on a state-of-the art 10-foot-wide hyperwall display.
We all know to back up our files and photos, but what about our castles and churches? A nonprofit named CyArk has created digital copies of more than 100 of the world's best-known monuments, mapping Roman ruins, ancient statues, and even an entire island.
This latest post, inspired by International Talk Like a Pirate Day,1,2 will take a brief look at the Arrr..., I mean R, programming language. R is an open source functional scripting language designed for statistical analysis and data visualization.
Recent announcements by Intel and NVIDIA indicate that massively parallel computing with GPUs and Intel Xeon Phi will no longer require passing data via the PCIe bus. The bad news is that these standalone devices are still in the design phase and are not yet available for purchase.
IBM has announced an advanced power and weather modeling technology that will help utilities increase the reliability of renewable energy resources. The solution combines weather prediction and analytics to accurately forecast the availability of wind power and solar energy. This will enable utilities to integrate more renewable energy into the power grid
Dynamics Research Corporation, a technology and management consulting company focused on driving performance, process and results for government clients, announced that it has been awarded a Blanket Purchase Agreement for high performance computing software development and technical services at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL).
The Simpleware 6.0 image visualization, analysis and model generation software suite features a ribbon user interface and other features designed to accelerate the process of segmenting and meshing 3-D image data. These include boundary layers and mesh clipping for the creation of custom CFD inlets/outlets, as well as curved quadratic elements and a tet-to-hex converter.
Avizo 8 is 3-D analysis software for scientific and industrial data. It is designed to be a powerful, multifaceted tool for visualizing, manipulating and understanding scientific and industrial data.
To determine the potential impact of fast-moving orbital debris on spacecraft — and to assist NASA in the design of shielding that can withstand hypervelocity impacts — researchers developed a numerical algorithm that simulates the shock physics of orbital debris particles striking the layers of Kevlar, metal, and fiberglass that makes up a space vehicle's outer defenses.
