Understanding I/O Patterns with strace

“The last lesson I want to mention is that there is more than one way to do I/O. By switching from the “one-by-one” approach, which wrote the data once the data structure was full, to the “array” method, which created an array of data structures and filled them before writing out the data, I was able to improve my data I/O pattern.”

Big Data Predictions for 2014

“In 2014, HPC technology will combine original, un-fragmented data loads with visualization tools to map data—accelerating the creation of relational hypothesis. We will also start to see the first signs of machine learning for enterprise data insights as automated relational analysis enters the Big Data analytics space.”

Interview: Solving Tech Problems with Quantum Computing

In this video, D-Wave CEO Vern Brownell discusses the company’s progress in quantum computing. “I hope the pendulum swings back the other way at some point, where it becomes more in vogue to do more of this science-based research, because it’s really important for us to transform science into technology.”
