What’s it Like to Unbox a Supercomputer? Surprisingly, Just Like Unboxing a Normal PC


I don’t know about you, but unboxing new gadgets gets me pretty excited. For me, it’s knowing that soon — very soon now, after I cut through the bubble wrap or peel back the protective plastic — the device will burst into life for the very first time. If I’m honest, it actually makes me feel like Frankenstein breathing life into his monster for the first time — especially when I unbox a bunch of components and build them into a new PC. What, then, must it feel like to unbox a brand new petascale supercomputer? Recently, the Pawsey Supercomputing C...

Danes Take Back Fastest Data Transfer Title

The team that broke the terabit barrier in 2009 is at it again. This time the High-Speed Optical Communications (HSOC) team at the Technical University of Denmark accomplished a record-smashing 43 terabits per second (Tbps) transfer speed over a single optical fiber with just one laser transmitter. That’s equivalent to a transfer rate of around 5.4 terabytes per second. The High-Speed Optical Communications group at the university’s photonics engineering department beat the previous record – 26 terabits per second – set by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology&...

Extracting Audio from Visual Information

MIT News

Researchers at MIT, Microsoft, and Adobe have developed an algorithm that can reconstruct an audio signal by analyzing minute vibrations of objects depicted in video. In one set of experiments, they were able to recover intelligible speech from the vibrations of a potato-chip bag photographed from 15 feet away through soundproof glass. In other experiments, they extracted useful audio signals from videos of aluminum foil, the surface of a glass of water, and even the leaves of a potted plant. The researchers will present their findings in a paper at this year’...

Application to Use Blue Waters Resources

Application Deadline - September 15, 2014.

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are invited to apply by Sept. 15 for allocations of time on the powerful Blue Waters supercomputer. Blue Waters is one of the world's most powerful computing systems. Each year, 3-4 million node-hours will be allocated to projects from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. As each node has many powerful cores, this is significantly more computing power than most universities have available for their use, and this resource provides Illinois faculty, ...

XSEDE14 Spotlighted Recent Work, Future Plans

The recent XSEDE14 Conference was touted by chairperson Scott Lathrop and project director John Towns as a networking opportunity for attendees. The number of training event attendees topped 14,000, signifying that "we're training a larger community than just those that only use XSEDE resources, we're extending ourselves out there," Towns says. XSEDE has conducted $767 million in work in the past year, about 50 percent of which is accomplished via U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) grants. The U.S. Defense Department, the Department of Energy, the National Institutes of Health, and th...
