Interview: GPU Technology Conference Enters 5th Year with Over 100 HPC Sessions


The upcoming GPU Technology Conference is entering it’s fifth year with developer talks on everything from Numerical Algorithms to Big Data Analytics. “In short, we’ll have a ton of HPC content. There are nearly 100 sessions dedicated to supercomputing and HPC topics. This includes major scientific research enabled by these GPU-accelerate systems – everything from breakthroughs in cancer research and astronomy, to HIV research and new big data analytics innovation.”

Seac02 Brings Augmented Reality to Altair Alliance


Seac02, the developer of the real-time rendering and augmented reality software LinceoVR, has joined the Altair Partner Alliance (APA). As the APA’s first rendering tool, LinceoVR expands the program’s simulation offering.

Large Datasets Continue to Challenge Aerospace Engineers


“In aerospace, users prefer to have the option to visualize the entire system. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s something routinely done. By definition, system-level visuals involve too much data. If an engineer is trying to troubleshoot something in an analysis program, he or she will most likely analyze only the subcomponents that contribute to the problem. For example, electrical wiring information can safely be omitted when doing an airflow study of the outer surface.”

VCollab: Displaying Ansys EKM Simulation Models in a Browser


Over at the Ansys Blog, Thomas Lehnhaeuser writes that VCollab softwares enables users to save time and view simulation models and their results without having to open a corresponding post-processing tool.

Forget 4K TV – Check out the NASA hyperwall-2


Now that the recent CES Conference has us all thinking that 4K displays are state-of-the-art, I thought it might be a good time to show this video of the hyperwall-2 at NASA. This 128-screen tiled LCD wall is arranged in a 8×16 configuration that measures 23-ft. wide by 10-ft. high. The display system is connected to […]

Dassault Acquires RTT


Dassault has announced the signing of an acquisition agreement for an 84 per cent interest in Realtime Technology (RTT).
