Call for Papers: IEEE International Workshop on High-Performance Big Data Computing (HPBDC 2017) - Deadline: January 17, 2017

Managing and processing large volumes of data, or “Big Data”, and gaining meaningful insights is a significant challenge facing the distributed computing community. This has significant impact on a wide range of domains including health care, bio-medical research, Internet search, finance and business informatics, and scientific computing. As data-gathering technologies and data-sources witness an explosion in the amount of input data, it is expected that in the future massive quantities of data in the order of hundreds or thousands of petabytes will need to be processed. Internationa...

How to See Living Machines

It sounds like something out of the Borg in Star Trek. Nano-sized robots self-assemble to form biological machines that do the work that keeps one alive. And yet something like this really does go on. Every cell in our body - be they flesh and blood, brain and everything in between - has identical DNA, the twisted staircase of nucleic acids uniquely coded to each organism. Complex assemblages that resemble molecular machines take pieces of DNA called genes and make a brain cell when needed, instead of, say, a bone cell. These molecular machines are so complex, yet so tiny, that scientists...

Huawei Showcases FusionServer X6000 at SC16

This week at SC16, Huawei launched their next-generation FusionServer X6000 HPC platform. Designed for compute-intensive workloads, the FusionServer X6000 offers higher efficiency and greater flexibility than previous systems. The X6000 HPC platform uses an innovative liquid cooling solution that features a skive fin micro-channel heat sink for CPU heat dissipation and processing technology where water flows through memory modules. The platform delivers a node liquid cooling percentage greater than 85%. Its modular design and 50ºC warm water cooling function offers customers high energy-...

SC Says Farewell to Salt Lake City, See You in Denver

After an intense four-day flurry of activity (and a cold snap that brought some actual snow flurries), the SC16 show floor closed yesterday (Thursday) and the always-extensive technical program wound down today. This year, 11,000-plus visitors, participants and volunteers from 65 countries came to Salt Lake City for the largest HPC conference in the world to take part in the four-day expo and a six-day technical program. In an on-site media briefing held Monday, SC16 Chair John West said that this year’s SC provided record space (450,000 square feet) to a record 349 research and industr...

Google, Facebook Cut Ad Revenue to 'fake' News Sites

Google and Facebook moved Tuesday to cut off advertising revenue to bogus news sites, acting after criticism of the role fake news played in the US presidential election. "We've been working on an update to our publisher policies and will start prohibiting Google ads from being placed on misrepresentative content, just as we disallow misrepresentation in our ads policies," a Google statement to AFP said. "Moving forward, we will restrict ad serving on pages that misrepresent, misstate, or conceal information about the publisher, the publisher's content, or the primary purpose of the web p...

Cray’s New Pascal XC50 Supercomputer Points to Richer HPC Future

Over the course of the last five years, GPU computing has featured prominently in supercomputing as an accelerator on some of the world’s fastest machines. If some supercomputer makers are correct, GPUs will continue to play a major role in high performance computing, but the acceleration they provide will go beyond boosts to numerical simulations. This has been great news for Nvidia’s bottom line since the market for GPU computing is swelling, and for HPC vendors that can integrate those and wrap the proper software stacks around both HPC and machine learning, it could be an equal bo...
