NCDS Takes Action on Big Data

Stan Ahalt, chair of the steering committee for the National Consortium for Data Science

In this special guest feature from Scientific Computing World, Stan Ahalt from the National Consortium for Data Science discusses how and why the organization came into being.

SGI Solutions for Next Generation Sequencing

SGI UV 2000

The SGI UV system allows computational biologists to take a different, far more effective approach to dealing with the huge data sets generated by contemporary Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) and analytic applications.

Video: Accelerating Big Data Processing with Hadoop, Spark and Memcached

DK Panda, Ohio State University

“Using the publicly available software packages in the High-Performance Big Data (HiBD) project, we will provide case studies of the new designs for several Hadoop/Spark/Memcached components and their associated benefits. Through these case studies, we will also examine the interplay between high performance interconnects, storage systems (HDD and SSD), and multi-core platforms to achieve the best solutions for these components.”

Internet of Things & What it Means to Fabrics

Open Fabric Alliance

In this video from the 2015 OFS Developer’s Workshop, Guy Ailee from Intel presents: Internet of Things & What it Means to Fabrics.

Nvidia Showcases Deep Learning Technology

Jen-Hsun Huang and Elon Musk

Nvidia’s GPU Technology Conference (GTC), being held in San Jose California this week, showcased a combination of hardware and software aimed at driving the development of a branch of machine learning called ‘deep learning’.

Radio Free HPC Wraps up the 2015 GPU Technology Conference

In this episode, the Radio Free HPC team wraps up the GPU Technology Conference. The theme of the show this year was Deep Learning, a topic that is heating up the market for GPUs with challenges like image recognition and self-driving cars. As a sister conference, the OpenPOWER Summit this week in San Jose showcased the first OpenPower hardware, including a prototype HPC server from IBM that will pave the way to the two IBM/Nvidia/Mellanox Coral supercomputers expected in 2017.

Genomics and Big Data

HPC Life Sciences 2

Advances in computational biology as applied to NGS workflows have led to an explosion of sequencing data. All that data has to be sequenced, transformed, analyzed, and stored. The machines capable of performing these computations at one point cost millions of dollars, but today the price tag has dropped into the hundreds of thousands of dollars range.

Replay: GTC Keynote on Deep Learning at Google

This week insideHPC will be streaming live keynotes from the GPU Technology Conference in San Jose. Today’s keynote will feature Google Senior Fellow Jeff Dean. “Google has built large-scale computer systems for training neural networks, and then applied these systems to a wide variety of problems that have traditionally been very difficult for computers.”

Interview: Why Software Defined Infrastructure Makes Sense for HPC

Jay Muelhoefer, IBM

“I came to IBM via the acquisition of Platform Computing. There’s also been other IBM assets around HPC, namely GPFS. What’s been the evolution of those items as well and how they really come together under this concept of software-defined infrastructure, and how we’re now taking these capabilities and expanding them into other initiatives that have sort of bled into the HPC space.”
