Quantum Errors Not Random, Tied to Cosmic Rays, Researchers Say

Research by a Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) physicist and a group of collaborators is shedding light on one of the major challenges to realizing the potential of quantum computing — error correction. In a new paper published in Nature and co-authored by LLNL physicist Jonathan DuBois, scientists examined quantum computing stability, particularly what causes errors and […]

LLNL, IBM and Red Hat to Explore Standardized Resource Management Interface for Cloud HPC

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), IBM and Red Hat are combining to develop best practices for interfacing high-performance computing (HPC) schedulers and cloud orchestrators, an effort designed for supercomputers that take advantage of cloud technologies. Under a recently signed memorandum of understanding (MOU), the organizations said researchers aim to enable next-generation workloads by integrating LLNL’s […]

Meet 6 Trailblazing Women in HPC

Women are severely underrepresented in the field of HPC. While they comprise about 51 percent of the general population, women account for only about 17 percent of the HPC workforce1. Those numbers are slowly improving, thanks to the contributions of numerous female engineers, scientists and researchers. In recognition of March as International Women’s History Month, we’re profiling six talented women doing trailblazing work that should inspire others to enter this exciting field.

LLNL Captures 3 FLC Technology Transfer Awards

Researchers from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) from the lab’s Innovation and Partnerships Office and colleagues who help them commercialize technologies have won three national technology transfer awards this year from the Federal Laboratory Consortium (FLC), the most national awards the lab has won in a year in the past 36 years. The winners will […]

LLNL Event Encourages Growth of Women in Data Science

March 17, 2021 — Coinciding with International Women’s Day on March 8, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s 4th Women in Data Science (WiDS) regional event brought women together to discuss successes, opportunities and challenges of being female in a mostly male field. The Lab’s first-ever virtual WiDS gathering attracted dozens of LLNL data scientists as well as some […]
