“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.”

IBTA Publishes RoCE Interoperability List from Plugfest

RoCE

Today the InfiniBand Trade Association (IBTA) announced the completion of the first Plugfest for RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) solutions and the publication of the RoCE Interoperability List on the IBTA website. Fifteen member companies participated, bringing their RoCE adapters, cables and switches for testing to the event.

Video: Climate Change – Fact, Fiction, and What You Can Do

Doug Sisterson, Argonne

“Climate change – or as Doug Sisterson, research meteorologist at Argonne National Laboratory, prefers to call it, climate disruption – is probably the greatest challenge we face in modern society, yet many of us don’t fully understand the causes or the consequences. Washington Governor Jay Inslee famously stated: “We’re the first generation to feel the impact of climate change and the last generation that can do something about it.”

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.”
