Bridges Plays Poker

Four of the world's best professional poker players will match wits with an artificial intelligence developed by Carnegie Mellon University and using XSEDE's Bridges system, located at...

Decades of Making Impossible Research Possible

In 1985/1986, the National Science Foundation (NSF) committed to "making impossible research possible" by funding five supercomputer centers:

Modeling the perfect classroom

Supercomputers have been used to model intricate biological cells and the greater cosmos, but now XSEDE resources and help services are helping school teachers and administrators figure out how to...

Supercomputing Black Hole Jets

Black holes make one of the great mysteries in physics. You might know that black holes are so massive that nothing, not even light, can escape once it gets close enough.   ...

How to See Living Machines

Scientists have taken the closest look yet at molecule-sized machinery called the human preinitiation complex. It basically opens up DNA so that genes can be copied and turned into...

PEARC17 Call for Participation

Managers, system administrators, user support staff, computational scientists, students, and educators are invited to contribute to discussions on the operation and use of campus and national...

Deep Insights from Surface Reactions

Things that happen on the surface are often given short shrift compared to what goes on inside

How to see living machines

It sounds like something out of the Borg in Star Trek. Nano-sized robots self-assemble to form biological machines that do the work that keeps one alive. And yet something like this really does go on.

Using Supercomputers to Illuminate the Renaissance

Most of us have heard about the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, based on the "six degrees of separation" concept, which posits that any two people on Earth are six or fewer acquaintance links...

Opening the spigot at XSEDE

A boost from sequencing technologies and computational tools is in store for scientists studying how cells change which of their genes are active.

Virtual File System Will Save Vast Computer Storage Space

Researchers analyzing complex multidimensional images may be able to save hundreds of terabytes of disk space, a team from PSC reported at the XSEDE16 supercomputing conference in Miami today.

Successful Test of Big-Data Transfer Scheduling

A project to make movement of the largest datasets more efficient has tested for the first time networking hardware components necessary for scheduling network bandwidth using Software Defined...

Americas Rural History

Imagine a time when information was far less accessible than it is today. Without the power to pull out your smartphone and perform a fact check in a matter of seconds, you had to trust that the...
