DOE Funding $7.7M for 11 Earth & Environmental Systems Modeling Studies

Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced $7.7 million in funding for 11 studies to improve understanding of earth system predictability and DOE’s Energy Exascale Earth System Model (E3SM) climate model. Funding totals $7.7 million in FY2021 dollars for 11 projects lasting three years. A list of projects can be found at the BER website […]

Dartmouth Engineering to Lead $2.7M DOE Quantum Computing Grant

HANOVER, N.H. – Funded by a $2.7 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Dartmouth Engineering Professor Geoffroy Hautier will lead a three-year, multi-institutional effort to identify qbits, a basic unit of quantum information, to transform and advance quantum computing. The team aims to build a database of viable qbits, which can store information in […]

Argonne Scientists Using DL to Visualize X-ray Data in 3D

JULY 26, 2021 – A team of Argonne scientists has leveraged artificial intelligence to train computers to keep up with the massive amounts of X-ray data taken at the Advanced Photon Source. Scientists are using artificial intelligence to train computers to process the reams of data produced by the Advanced Photon Source. Computers have been able […]

NVIDIA and King’s College London Use Cambridge-1 Supercomputer for Synthetic Brain Image Research

King’s College London is using the Nvidia-based Cambridge-1 supercomputer to build AI models to generate synthetic brain images by learning from tens of thousands of MRI brain scans taken of patients of various ages and with a variety of diseases. This work is intended to enable scientists to differentiate healthy brains from those that are […]

NCSA Supports Virtual Girls’ Astronomy Summer Camp Run by UofI

High school students got first-hand experience studying space and the Universe last week through the Girls’ Astronomy Summer Camp run by the Department of Astronomy at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and NCSA’s Center for AstroPhysical Surveys (CAPS). The free camp is open to all high school students interested in astronomy. And being virtual this year, students participated […]

NREL Scientists Find Synergy in PET Plastic-degrading Enzymes Using TACC, SDSC HPC Resources

Plastic waste is a big problem in the environment. About 300 million tons is produced every year, according to the United Nations. Much of that is polyethylene terephthalate (PET), used to make single-use plastic bottles, carpets, and clamshell packaging. In the U.S., the Environmental Protection Agency estimates annually that only about 29 percent of PET bottles are recycled. About […]

DOE Funds $13M for Adapting Scientific Software to Run on Exascale Supercomputers

July 21, 2021 — The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced more than $13 million for five advanced-computing projects across nine states, including $4.4 million to U.S. universities. The projects will focus on adapting scientific software to run on the coming generation of increasingly powerful supercomputers. The goal is to decrease the effort necessary […]
