In this video from the 2014 HPC User Forum in Seattle, Jan van Lunteren from IBM Research Labs in Zurich presents: Memory-Driven Near-Data Acceleration.
The Square Kilometre Array Design Studies are an international effort to investigate and develop technologies which will enable us to build an enormous radio astronomy telescope with a million square meters of collecting area.
Bill Boas from Cray presented this talk at the Stanford HPC & Exascale Conference. “The SKA Telescope project entered its pre-construction design and engineering planning phase on December 1, 2013. Once fully constructed a decade from now, there will be 2500 dish antennae in South Africa and 100s of thousands of di-pole antennae in Western Australia, combining to create the world’s largest radio telescope and requiring the most data ever captured, processed, and archived that man has ever conceived.”
