Supercomputers, XSEDE Resources Help Reduce Jet Engine Noise

A researcher at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign is reducing sound from jet engines for his NASA- and Navy-funded research. He’s using resources provided through an organization based partly at NCSA: Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE). The National Science Foundation-funded project links supercomputers and code experts to academics who need them. Daniel Bodony, Blue Waters Professor and Associate Professor of Aerospace Engineering, is a veteran NSF supercomputer user. His research has been advanced considerably by XSEDE hardware that allows him to s...

First US Exascale Supercomputer Now On Track for 2021

The US Department of Energy’s Exascale Computing Project (ECP) has changed its timeline for getting the first post-petascale system into the field. The new goal is to get an initial exascale system deployed sometime in 2021, with acceptance nine months after that. That shrinks the schedule significantly and puts the country back on a more competitive trajectory with regard to China and Japan. According to Paul Messina, who heads up the ECP effort, the new plan came about as a result of internal discussions over summer within the DOE. The compressed timeline was ratified on November 17th...

AMD Reveals ‘Instinct’ for Machine Intelligence

At the AMD Tech Summit in Sonoma, Calif., last week (Dec. 7-9), CEO Lisa Su unveiled the company’s vision to accelerate machine intelligence over the next five to ten years with an open and heterogeneous computing approach and a new suite of hardware and open-source software offerings. The roots for this strategy can be traced back to the company’s acquisition of graphics chipset manufacturer ATI in 2006 and the subsequent launch of the CPU-GPU hybrid Fusion generation of computer processors. In 2012, the Fusion platform matured into the Heterogeneous Systems Architecture (HSA), now o...

Intel Collaborates with CERN to Support Upgraded LHC Experiments

Much of the media attention given to the particle accelerator experiments that happen at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, known as CERN, is focused on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). It’s no surprise, given the LHC is the world’s largest, most complex machine, unravelling some of the toughest scientific problems by accelerating particles (protons or heavy ions) and making them collide in a gigantic 27-kilometer ring. But the work that happens immediately after particles collide in the LHC is not only critical to science, it’s also quite interesting and important from...

Facebook's Latest Experiment: Helping you find free Wi-Fi Hotspots

Facebook says it’s not a media company, but it just might be turning into a Wi-Fi finder service. Users of the social network’s iOS app report seeing a new feature in the More section that lets them find nearby public Wi-Fi access points. The feature does not appear to be widely available at the moment, which means this is probably something Facebook is only testing. The social network tests numerous features all the time but this one is particularly notable. As The Next Web points out, helping users find public Wi-Fi could enable more people to use Facebook Live. If your cellular con...

Weather the storm: Improving Great Lakes Modeling

Up until now, atmospheric models and hydrodynamic models have remained separate to a large extent in the Great Lakes region, with only a few attempts to loosely couple them. In a new study, published online this week in the Journal of Climate, an integrated model brings together climate and water models. The collaborative work is the product of researchers from Michigan Technological University, Loyola Marymount University, LimnoTech and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory. Pengfei Xue, an assistant professor of civil and env...
