“CDSW’s organizers are professional programmers and data scientists and several of us have experience teaching data science in more traditional university and corporate settings. Our talk will describe how “democratized” data science is similar to — and sometimes extremely different from — these more traditional approaches. We will talk about some of the challenges we have faced and highlight some of our most inspirational successes.”

Pushing the Boundaries of Combustion Simulation with Mira

Bright Computing has announced an expansion of its global network of channel partners, local resellers, local system integrators, as well as original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). The relationships are leading to collaborations resulting in increased business opportunities in its core Western, Central and Eastern European markets, Russia, the Middle East, and Africa.

Experts Focus on Code Efficiency at ISC 2015

DK Panda from Ohio State University conducts a tutorial at ISC 2015.

In this special guest feature, Robert Roe from Scientific Computing World explores the efforts made by top HPC centers to scale software codes to the extreme levels necessary for exascale computing. “The speed with which supercomputers process useful applications is more important than rankings on the TOP500, experts told the ISC High Performance Conference in Frankfurt last month.”

A Systems View of Machine Learning

“Despite the growing abundance of powerful tools, building and deploying machine-learning frameworks into production continues to be major challenge, in both science and industry. I’ll present some particular pain points and cautions for practitioners as well as recent work addressing some of the nagging issues. I advocate for a systems view, which, when expanded beyond the algorithms and codes to the organizational ecosystem, places some interesting constraints on the teams tasked with development and stewardship of ML products.”

“Software and computers are everywhere, revolutionizing every field around us. But the majority of schools don’t teach computer science. Code.org believes every student should have the opportunity to shape the 21st-century and wants to turn this problem around. This is just the beginning of a bold vision to bring this foundational field to every K-12 public school by 2020.”
