The Pittsburg Supercomputer Center is streaming live video from their launch event for their new Sherlock supercomputer. A uRiKA graph-analytics appliance from YarcData, Sherlock is designed to discover unknown relationships or patterns hidden in extremely large and complex bodies of information.
Sherlock gives PSC the first system available to researchers that is optimized for a particularly difficult family of questions regarding, for example, security, medicine, public health, and social dynamics,” says Nick Nystrom, Director of Strategic Applications, PSC. “These problems cost individuals and society in time, money, and human suffering. Sherlock also helps keep Pittsburgh — and Pennsylvania — at the forefront of high performance computing.”
