TACC’s Stampede2 HPC Simulations Reveal How Cells Regulate Themselves

Supercomputer simulations run on the Stampede2 system of the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) have helped scientists studying how cells work understand the way in which protein molecules in a sense dance with a partner to respond to signals and regulate each other’s activities. Crucial to giving cells energy for life is the migration of […]

Pawsey Offers 1st Look at ‘Setonix’ $48M HPE Cray EX Supercomputer

Perth, Australia — The first phase of what the Pawsey Supcomputer Centre said will be the fastest public research supercomputer in the Southern Hemisphere has been unveiled at its new home at the Pawsey Centre in Western Australia, “resplendent in artwork that reflects the skies it will help researchers to unlock,” Pawsey said. Stage 1 […]

Sandia Materials and Computer Scientists Help Create Alloys for Hydrogen Energy Storage, Transmission

LIVERMORE, Calif., Sept. 20, 2021 — A Sandia National Laboratories team of materials scientists and computer scientists, with some international collaborators, have spent more than a year creating 12 new alloys — and modeling hundreds more — that demonstrate how machine learning can help accelerate the future of hydrogen energy by making it easier to […]

Riken Claims Quantum Breakthrough: Entanglement of Three Spin Qubits

Researchers at Japan’s RIKEN scientific research institute have claimed a breakthrough in quantum computing, increasing the number of silicon-based qubits that can be entangled to three from two, which they say improves the potential of spin qubits for realizing multi-qubit quantum algorithms and effectively addressing quantum error correction. Reporting recently in SciTechDaily, the five researchers […]

Human Brain Project’s EBRAINS Shares Laptop-to-Supercomputer Brain Simulator

EBRAINS, a new digital research infrastructure set up by the EU-funded Human Brain Project, has made available a brain simulation software, called NEST 3, for use in fields such as neuroscience and robotics. NEST 3 is designed to enable a better representation of entire populations of neurons and to optimize simulator performance. “NEST 3 boosts […]

Indian Institute of Tech, Max-Born Institut Team Say Graphene Valleytrionics Could Enable Room Temperature Quantum

A research team from the Indian Institute of Technology and Max-Born Institute of Germany have published a study on a novel approach for encoding quantum information: valleytronics. Aside from their charge, electrons have another parameter that can be manipulated: their “valley pseudospin,” which are the local minima in the energy bands of solids that can […]

ALCF, IIT Team Develops Benchmark for Scientific Deep Learning Efficiency

The emergence of deep learning techniques has provided a new tool for accelerating scientific exploration and discoveries. A group of researchers from the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) and the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) set out to improve the efficiency of deep learning-driven research by developing a new benchmark, named DLIO, to investigate the […]

DOE Funds $13M Project for Adapting Scientific Software for HPC

A project involving researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and national lab and academic collaborators has received U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) funding as part of an effort to adapt scientific software for next-generation high-performance computing (HPC) systems. The project is a collaboration among LLNL, the University of Utah (lead investigator Ganesh Gopalakrishnan and Pavel Panchekha), Pacific Northwest National Laboratory […]

SDSC Houses Novel Metabolomics Data Repository

September 14, 2021 — How is the “normal” resting heart rate determined? How does the American Diabetes Association establish the “normal” fasting glucose value? Understanding these “normal” ranges for metabolism is complex, especially because the human body may contain tens of thousands of metabolites at any one time; each individual molecule could be tied to […]
