We are please to announce that our friends at the UberCloud won a number of prestigious awards for HPC in the Cloud.

At Hyperion Research’s HPC Market Update Breakfast Briefing, UberCloud and partners received the Innovation Excellence Award for its UberCloud Experiment and case study #200 based on “Computer simulations of non-invasive transcranial electro-stimulation of the human brain in schizophrenia.”

Our Living Brain Project team, led by researchers from the National Institute of Mental Health & Neuro Sciences NIMHANS in Bangalore and Dassault Systemes SIMULIA, is proud and humbled to be selected again this year by the Steering Committee of the HPC User Forum for the prestigious Innovation Excellence Award,” said Wolfgang Gentzsch from UberCloud, who managed this project. “And we are deeply grateful for all the support from Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Intel (the sponsors), Dassault Systemes (for Abaqus 2017), Advania Data Centers (providing HPC Cloud resources), and the UberCloud tech team for containerizing the Abaqus Workflow and integrating all software and hardware components into one seamless and fully automated HPE IaaS solution stack.”

Schizophrenia is a serious mental illness characterized by illogical thoughts, bizarre behavior and speech, and delusions or hallucinations. This work represents a breakthrough in demonstrating the high value of computational modeling and simulation in improving the clinical application of non-invasive electro-stimulation of the human brain in schizophrenia and the potential to apply this technology to the treatment of other neuropsychiatric disorders such as depression and Parkinson’s disease. With the addition of HPC, clinicians can now precisely and non-invasively target regions of the brain without disrupting nearby healthy brain regions!

And while still on stage, the second winner of this year’s Hyperion Innovation Award also announced, and it was – again – UberCloud. This time, the prize has been awarded for UberCloud’s project on ”Simulating Moisture Transfer in a Residential Condo Tower Helped PBBL Law Offices to Prove a Client’s Case“, which already received the HPCwire Editors’ Choice Award, the day before.
