OARnet in Ohio to Help Researchers Accelerate Big Data Sharing

OARnet recently joined several other regional and federal network organizations on a three-year, $3.5 million grant to help scientists more efficiently work with massive datasets that have become essential to modern scientific discovery. “Throughout Ohio, and across the nation, we are seeing researchers transmitting an ever-increasing volume of larger and larger datasets over our networks,” said Paul Schopis, executive director of OARnet. “These vast stores of information are laying the foundations for improvements in health and prosperity. As research and education networks serving these educators, scientists and engineers, we have to develop the techniques, infrastructure and policies that will fully support their information-sharing needs.”

HPC4Materials Program Funds Nine Projects to Fight Hot Corrosion Degradation

The Department of Energy today announced the first round of awardees for the new HPC4Materials (HPC4Mtls) Program. “We are excited about adding a materials portfolio to the HPC4EnergyInnovation umbrella program,” said acting HPC4Materials Director Robin Miles. “Understanding material properties at the macro level based on atomic scale effects is a sweet spot for HPC capabilities. New materials are essential for improved energy efficiency in electrical power plants and advanced vehicles.”

Towards Exascale Engine Simulations with NEK5000

In this video from the HPC User Forum in Detroit, Muhsin Ameen from Argonne National Laboratory presents: Towards Exascale Engine Simulations with NEK5000. “High-order methods have the potential to overcome the current limitations of standard CFD solvers. For this reason, we have been developing and improving the spectral element code NEK5000 for more than 30 years now.”

Video: End to End Needs for Autonomous Vehicles

Norm Marks from NVIDIA gave this talk at the HPC User Forum. “Fueled by advances in artificial intelligence, cars are getting smart enough to begin to drive themselves. But autonomous vehicles will do more than change how we get around. They have the potential to dramatically reduce the number of car crashes, shrink carbon emissions, and provide mobility to people who can’t drive.”
