Argonne-led Team of Scientists Use AI to Detect Gravitational Waves

JULY 6, 2021 — When gravitational waves were first detected in 2015 by the advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO), they sent a ripple through the scientific community, as they confirmed another of Einstein’s theories and marked the birth of gravitational wave astronomy. Five years later, numerous gravitational wave sources have been detected, including the first […]

insideHPC Guide to HPC Fusion Computing Model – A Reference Architecture for Liberating Data (Part 3)

This insideHPC technology guide, “insideHPC Guide to HPC Fusion Computing Model – A Reference Architecture for Liberating Data,” discusses how organizations need to adopt a Fusion Computing Model to meet the needs of processing, analyzing, and storing the data to no longer be static. Fusion computing provides a reference architecture with multiple configurations. “We went back to evaluate the first principles of why we store and move data. The Fusion Computing Model looks at a broader integration of capabilities to put agility back at the data center model.”

Fugaku Stays on Top of Top500 Supercomputer List – But Is China Holding Back?

The new edition of the Top500 list of the world’s most powerful supercomputers saw the Japanese Fugaku system solidify its number one status in a list that the the Top500 organizers said shows a somewhat static and flattening performance growth curve.  In fact, only one new system attained the top 10 (here’s the complete list). […]

Lenovo at ISC: ‘Exascale to Every Scale’

For at least four years, Lenovo has been vocal about its high ambitions in high performance computing, and by all appearances the company is progressing toward its objectives. This is the eighth year since China-based Lenovo purchased IBM’s Intel x86-based server business, an acquisition that marked the company’s entrance into HPC, and despite some U.S. […]
