In today’s segment, we look at how a data explosion is driving a new era of computational science at Department of Energy light sources. When scientists from around the world visit Dula Parkinson’s micro-tomography beamline at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s Advanced Light Source, they all want the same thing: amazing, scientifically illuminating, micron-scale X-ray views of matter, whether a fiber-reinforced ceramic composite...
In this segment, we look at the Never Ending Image Learner. A computer program is running 24-...
Today, we look at how high performance computing resources are increasingly crucial for...
In this segment, we look at mobile technology. All signs indicate a healthy continuing demand for technology that can support ever-more-demanding eye-candy and apps on very-high-resolution display devices. According to independent high performance computing expert Rob Farber, mobile tech is where the money is right now in computer technology.
NASA’s Quantum Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (QuAIL) is the space agency's hub for an experiment to assess the potential of quantum computers to perform calculations that are difficult or impossible using conventional supercomputers.
Scientists at ETH Zurich and IBM Research, in collaboration with the Technical University of Munich and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, have set a new record in supercomputing in fluid dynamics using 6.4 million threads on one of the fastest supercomputers in the world.

Researchers in France develop a baby robot that has the capacity to learn. Unfortunately, it looks a little scary.
Anne Elster talks about her graduate research group Who are using CUDA at the HPC lab of NTNY. Robin Eidissen, a research student at the HPC lab.
A real-time snow simulation created at the NTNU (Norwegian University of Science and Technology) HPC-lab. The movement of each individual snowflake is simulated in real-time using a GPU. A windfield affects the snow particles, in addition to gravity and a spiraling motion. The windfield...
