Today Nvidia announced that researchers at the San Diego Supercomputer Center have won the inaugural Global Impact Award and its $150,000 prize. The researchers were honored for their work using high performance computing to understand how earthquakes occur and their impact on the earth’s behavior.

Preparing for Advanced Manycore Architectures – and Implications on the Interconnect

Katie Antypas,
Services Department Head, National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

In this video from the 2015 OFS Developer’s Workshop, Katie Antypas from LBNL describes preparations for the Cori supercomputer. “We need to emphasize here that the Knights Landing processor is self-hosted, and so that means it’s not an accelerator. It’s not a coprocessor and the particular kernel processor that will be having for NERSC-8, will have more than 60 cores and it will have multiple hardware threads for the core. That’s a lot, right? Having 60 cores per node with multiple hardware threads. That a significant increase from both our Hopper and Edison system, which has 24 cores each.”

Video: Interconnecting Future DoE Leadership Systems

CORAL (Collaboration of Oak Ridge, Argonne and Lawrence Livermore National Labs) is a project that was launched in 2013 to develop the technology and meet the Department of Energy’s 2017-2018 leadership computing needs with supercomputers. The collaboration between Mellanox, IBM and NVIDIA was selected by the CORAL project team after a comprehensive evaluation of future technologies from a variety of vendors. The development of these supercomputers is well underway with installation expected in 2017.

Quantifying The Dynamics of Your Superorganism Body Using Big Data Supercomputing

The human body is host to 100 trillion microorganisms, ten times the number of cells in the human body, and these microbes contain 100 times the number of DNA genes that our human DNA does. UC San Diego CSE Professor, Larry Smarr, discusses how data from these trillions of DNA bases are fed into supercomputers, resulting in innovative scalable visualization systems that allow for the examination of patterns that can be used to suggest new hypotheses for clinical application.
