Enhancing Security with High Performance AI Capability Deployed at the Rugged Edge

In this sponsored post from One Stop Systems, we see that whether surviving in a fast-moving battlefield situation, protecting sensitive industrial or transportation hub assets, or ensuring uninterrupted operation of critical national infrastructure, intelligent long-range surveillance is critical.  The ability to provide 24/7 remote long range threat detection and situational awareness coupled with human-machine control allows for the fast and appropriate threat response that is fundamental to addressing these security imperatives.

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 […]
