Machine learning is the science of getting computers to act without being explicitly programmed. The new R2D3 Blog offers an instructive Visual Introduction to Machine Learning.

Intel Updates Developer Toolkit with Data Analytics Acceleration Library

Int_DPD_TEC_ProductGraphic_PSXE

Today Intel released Intel Parallel Studio XE 2016, the next iteration of its developer toolkit for HPC and technical computing applications. This release introduces the Intel Data Analytics Acceleration Library, a library for big data developers that turns large data clusters into meaningful information with advanced analytics algorithms.

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.”

Titan Supercomputer Powers the Future of Forecasting

“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.”

ORNL Hosts Meetings on OpenACC & OpenMP

Staff from the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF), a US Department of Energy (DOE)Office of Science User Facility, held prominent roles in two recent committee meetings—one focused on OpenACC and one devoted to OpenMP.

Training the Next Generation of Code Developers for HPC – Part 2

Rob Farber gives a tutorial at SC14

This is the second article in a two-part series about the challenges facing the HPC community in training people to write code and develop algorithms for current and future, massively-parallel, massive-scale HPC systems.

Video: An Intuitive Introduction to the Fourier Transform and FFT

William Cox, Distil Networks

“The fast fourier transform (FFT) algorithm is a powerful tool for looking at time-based measurements in an interesting way, but do you understand what it does? This talk will start from basic geometry and explain what the fourier transform is, how to understand it, why it’s useful and show examples. If you’re collecting time-series data (e.g. heart rate, stock prices, server usage, temperature) the fourier transform can be a useful tool for analyzing the underlying periodic nature of the data.”

“HPC in a Box” from the Docker Workshop at ISC 2015

Christian Kniep

In this video from the Docker Workshop at ISC 2015, Christian Kniep from QNIB Solutions shows how he uses Docker in his efforts to provide a HPC software stack in a box, encapsulating each layer in the HPC stack within a Linux Container.
