“Industrial Applications of High-Performance Computing: Best Global Practices offers a global overview of HPC for industrial applications, along with a discussion of software challenges, business models, access models (e.g., cloud computing), public-private partnerships, simulation and modeling, visualization, big data analysis, and governmental and industrial influence.”
“This presentation will highlight the use of GPU ray tracing for visualizing the process of photosynthesis, and GPU accelerated analysis of results of hybrid structure determination methods that combine data from cryo-electron microscopy and X-ray crystallography atom molecular dynamics with all- simulations.”
The Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC), using the power of the petascale Blue Waters Supercomputer at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, has developed a physics-based model called CyberShake that simulates how an earthquake works rather than approximating the tremors based on observations.
“NCSA has worked with more than one-third of the Fortune50, in sectors including manufacturing, oil and gas, finance, retail/wholesale, bio/medical, life sciences, astronomy, agriculture, technology, and more. NCSA’s Private Sector Program currently boasts 26 partners. PSP’s core mission is to help its partner community gain a competitive edge through expert use of modern, high-performance digital and human resources.”
