Slidecast: John Gustafson Explains Energy Efficient Unum Computing

book2

“Written by one of the foremost experts in high-performance computing and the inventor of Gustafson’s Law, The End of Error: Unum Computing explains a new approach to computer arithmetic: the universal number (unum). The unum encompasses all IEEE floating-point formats as well as fixed-point and exact integer arithmetic. This new number type obtains more accurate answers than floating-point arithmetic yet uses fewer bits in many cases, saving memory, bandwidth, energy, and power.”

HPC’s Future Lies in Remote Visualization

Tom Wilkie, Scientific Computing World

Remote visualization is at the intersection of cloud, big data, and high performance computing. And the ability to look at complex data sets using only a mobile phone’s data rate is not some fantasy of the future. It is reality here and now.

Using HPC in Design and Manufacturing

Lightweight construction is more than designing according to the laws of nature. It is a social, ecological and economic concern, a philosophy and an aesthetic view. In this case study we see how SL-Rasch (Institute for Scientific Architecture) used HPC to design, simulate and manufacture large umbrellas for use in a variety of places including a mosque.
