ESnet has released open source code for building online Interactive Network Portals. “Now that the libraries are made available, the team hopes that other organizations will take the code, use it, add to it and work with ESnet to make the improvements available to the community.”
A new breakthrough battery — one that has significantly higher energy, lasts longer, and is cheaper and safer — will likely be impossible without a new material discovery. And a new material discovery could take years, if not decades, since trial and error has been the best available approach. But Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) scientist Kristin Persson says she can take some of the guesswork out of the discovery process with her Electrolyte Genome.
“I will describe a decade-long, multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional effort spanning neuroscience, supercomputing and nanotechnology to build and demonstrate a brain-inspired computer and describe the architecture, programming model and applications. I also will describe future efforts in collaboration with DOE to build, literally, a “brain-in-a-box”. The work was built on simulations conducted on Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s Dawn and Sequoia HPC systems in collaboration with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.”
“SUPER builds on past successes and now includes research into performance auto-tuning, energy efficiency, resilience, multi-objective optimization, and end-to-end tool integration. Leading the project dovetails neatly with Oliker’s research interests, which include optimization of scientific methods on emerging multi-core systems, ultra-efficient designs of domain-optimized computational platforms and performance evaluation of extreme-scale applications on leading supercomputers.”
In this video, attendees discuss highlights from Day 3 of the ISC 2015 conference, including the conference’s industry track, exhibit floor, and vendor parties. The program includes short interviews with Ed Seidel from NCSA, Sverre Jarp from CERN, Horst Simon from LBNL, Jack Dongarra from the University of Tennessee, and Jürgen Kohler from Daimler AG.
