Radio Free HPC Looks at Big News in Graph Computing

In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team looks at why the Alan Turing Institute is focusing on Graph Computing with their acquisition of a Cray Urika-GX supercomputer. After that, they cover a series of IT developments that go to Infinity and Beyond.

Alan Turing Institute to Acquire Cray Urika-GX Graph Supercomputer

Today Cray announced the Company will provide a Cray Urika-GX system to the Alan Turing Institute. “The rise of data-intensive computing – where big data analytics, artificial intelligence, and supercomputing converge – has opened up a new domain of real-world, complex analytics applications, and the Cray Urika-GX gives our customers a powerful platform for solving this new class of data-intensive problems.”

Video: Intel Forms Strategic Partnership with The Alan Turing Institute

In this video from SC15, Patrick Wolfe from the Alan Turing Institute and Karl Solchenbach from Intel describe a strategic partnership to deliver a research program focussed on HPC and data analytics. Created to promote the development and use of advanced mathematics, computer science, algorithms and big data for human benefit, the Alan Turing Institute is a joint venture between the universities of Warwick, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Oxford, UCL and EPSRC.

Alan Turing Institute Hits the Ground Running for HPC & Data Science

The Alan Turing Institute is the UK’s national institute for data science. It has marked its first few days of operations with the announcement of its new director, the confirmation of £10 million of research funding from Lloyd’s Register Foundation, a research partnership with GCHQ, collaboration with the EPSRC and Cray, and the commencement of its first research activities.

Five University Partners Line Up With Alan Turing Institute

The universities of Cambridge Edinburgh, Oxford, Warwick and UCL have been chosen to lead the Alan Turing Institute, which will promote advanced mathematics, computer science, and big data in the UK.
