NCSA Highlights Scientific Impacts from Three Years of Blue Waters

“Build it and they will come” is one way to approach building a supercomputer, but it’s not what the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) did with Blue Waters, the largest leadership-class National Science Foundation supercomputer. Prior to the system going online in April 2013, Blue Waters staff worked with more than 20 science teams to determine a unique, balanced...

Supercomputers assist in search for new, better cancer drugs

Surgery and radiation remove, kill, or damage cancer cells in a certain area. But chemotherapy—which uses medicines or drugs to treat cancer—can work throughout the whole body, killing cancer cells that have spread far from the original tumor. Finding new drugs that can more effectively kill cancer cells or disrupt the growth of tumors is one way to improve survival rates for ailing...

IBM "Minsky" Cluster Achieves Billion-Cell Reservoir Simulation in Record Time

A 30-node cluster of GPU-accelerated IBM “Minsky” servers has performed a billion-cell petroleum reservoir simulation in 92 minutes. Previous attempts at this scale required 20 hours using a large supercomputer with thousands of processors. Oil and gas companies rely on reservoir simulations to help figure out the most productive spots to drill. But since these simulations are so...

Calculations on Supercomputers Help Reveal the Physics of the Universe

On their quest to uncover what the universe is made of, researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory are harnessing the power of supercomputers to make predictions about particle interactions that are more precise than ever before. Argonne researchers have developed a new theoretical approach, ideally suited for high-performance computing systems, that is...

Scientists develop new high-precision method for analyzing and comparing functioning and structure of complex networks

Researchers at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) and the University of Barcelona (UB) published a paper in Nature Communications presenting a scientific method for identifying, comparing and precisely determining objective differences between large nodes of complex networks. The new method makes it possible, for example, to compare and differentiate the functioning of brain...

Scientists Come Up with Blueprint for Supersized Quantum Computer

Quantum computing is back in the news – this time courtesy of a research team that has published a blueprint for what they are calling “the most powerful computer on Earth.” According to the press release issued on Wednesday, a quantum computer based on this blueprint can be built with currently available technologies and would have nearly unlimited computational power. The announcement sums...

Modifying the 'middle end' of a popular compiler yields more-efficient parallel programs

Compilers are programs that convert computer code written in high-level languages intelligible to humans into low-level instructions executable by machines. But there's more than one way to implement a given computation, and modern compilers extensively analyze the code they process, trying to deduce the implementations that will maximize the efficiency of the resulting software. Code...

MIT Lincoln Laboratory Takes the Mystery Out of Supercomputing

The introduction of multicore and manycore processors capable of handling highly parallel workflows is changing the face of high performance computing (HPC). Many supercomputer users, like the big DOE labs, are implementing these next generation systems. They are now engaged in significant code modernization efforts to adapt their key present and future applications to the new processing...

Intel Collaborates with CERN to Support Upgraded LHC Experiments

Much of the media attention given to the particle accelerator experiments that happen at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, known as CERN, is focused on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). It’s no surprise, given the LHC is the world’s largest, most complex machine, unravelling some of the toughest scientific problems by accelerating particles (protons or heavy ions) and making...
