Quantum Computing Inc. releases version 1.1 of Mukai middleware

Quantum Computing Inc has released version 1.1 of its Mukai middleware with new capabilities delivering higher performance and greater ease of use for subject-matter experts developing quantum-ready applications needing superior performance today. “Mukai enables developers to create and execute quantum-ready applications on classical computers, while being ready to run on quantum computers when those systems can achieve performance advantages. QCI has already demonstrated superior performance today for some applications built on Mukai and running on classical computers.”

Accelerating vaccine research for COVID-19 with HPC and AI

In this special guest feature, Peter Ungaro from HPE writes that HPC is playing a leading role in our fight against COVID-19 to support the urgent need to find a vaccine that will save lives and reduce suffering worldwide. “At HPE, we are committed to advancing the way we live and work. As a world leader in HPC and AI, we recognize the impact we can make by applying modeling, simulation, machine learning and analytics capabilities to data to accelerate insights and discoveries that were never before possible.”

French supercomputers help European scientists fight COVID19

Two of the most powerful supercomputers in France, Joliot-Curie at CEA and Occigen at CINES are providing urgent computing access to large computer resources to European research teams involved in the fight against COVID-19. The aim is to perform epidemiological studies of COVID-19 virus spread, understand its molecular structure and behavior and massively screen and […]

Rambus Launches 800G MACsec Multi-Channel Engine

Today Rambus  announced its 800G MACsec (Media Access Control security) solution for next-generation networking infrastructure. The 800G MACsec solution delivers hardware-based, point-to-point security for 800 Gigabit Ethernet links and is a critical element of end-to-end network security. “Our 800G MACsec protocol engine leverages a scalable architecture that supports configurations of one to many ports with an aggregate bandwidth of up to 800 Gbps. This flexibility provides the benefit of limiting the silicon cost for security, while safeguarding required data communications.”

Video: Major Market Shifts in IT

Shahin Khan from OrionX gave this talk at the Stanford HPC Conference. “We will discuss the digital infrastructure of the future enterprise and the state of these trends. OrionX works with clients on the impact of Digital Transformation on them, their customers, and their messages. Generally, they want to track, in one place, trends like IoT, 5G, AI, Blockchain, and Quantum Computing. And they want to know what these trends mean, how they affect each other, and when they demand action, and how to formulate and execute an effective plan. If that describes you, we can help.”

Atos engages in the fight against Covid-19

Atos reports that the company is bringing its technology leadership, skills and innovation resources to the global fight against Covid-19. Through several direct and partner-led initiatives across the globe, Atos is engaged on multiple fronts, providing solutions and computing power to help contain the spread of the virus, support the scientific community, accelerate vaccine research and ensure business continuity for critical activities.

Cortical.io Taps FPGAs for Message Intelligence

Today Cortical.io announced Message Intelligence, an out-of-the-box solution that filters, classifies, and routes streams of messages in real time at a massive scale. “Combining the Cortical.io proven Semantic Folding method with FPGA-powered acceleration from Xilinx, Cortical.io Message Intelligence is a purpose-built appliance, easily installed and configured. It provides human-level accuracy in filtering and classifying messages, enabling businesses to more quickly process and respond to messages of any kind and also mitigate legal risks.”

PRACE Awards 195 Million Core Hours to fight Coronavirus

PRACE is joining the battle against COVID-19 by providing huge computational power – 195 Million core hours – to the first ten projects awarded under the Fast Track Call for Proposals to support the mitigation of the impact of the pandemic. “These projects will provide new lead compounds and targets for further in vitro and in vivo studies of SARS-CoV-2 (virus strain causing coronavirus disease COVID-19), new insights for those drugs currently undergoing clinical studies and also possible new strategies for drug repositioning to treat SARS-CoV-2 infections.”

Surprising Mechanical Lessons About Predicting Innovation Success

Thomas Thurston from WR Hambrecht Ventures gave this talk at the Stanford HPC Conference. “For a century, corporate innovators, entrepreneurs and venture capitalists have had to rely on their instincts when deciding which strategies to pursue, and where to invest for growth. Now data science is turning human instinct on its head with powerful decision technologies that are giving rise to counter-intuitive discoveries about market behavior and predicting innovation success. Learn how venture capital firm WR Hambrecht is using big data and machine learning to better identify growth opportunities, predict new business success and rewrite the rules of innovation.”

Podcast: Trish Damkroger on HPC’s Role in the fight against COVID-19

In this Chip Chat podcast, Trish Damkroger from Intel describes HPC’s relevance in today’s society, particularly in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic. “The podcast covers how Intel’s HPC solutions offer computing resources to researchers and scientists to better understand the underlying characteristics of COVID-19, to help limit the spread of the virus, and to advance the development of COVID-19 vaccines. Today’s episode also discusses various HPC workloads that are being used and Trish’s observations on the HPC community’s positive responses and contributions.”
