Call for Papers: Women in IT Networking at SC17 (WINS) - Deadline: March 24, 2017

SCinet at SC17 has issued its Call for Applications for the Women in IT Networking (WINS) program. Created each year for the SC conference, SCinet brings to life a very high-capacity network that supports the revolutionary applications and experiments that are a hallmark of the SC conference. SCinet will link the convention center to research and commercial networks around the world. SCinet provides an ideal “apprenticeship” opportunity for engineers and technologists looking for direct access to the most cutting-edge network hardware and software, while working side-by-side with the ...

Simons Foundation’s Flatiron Institute to Repurpose SDSC’s ‘Gordon’ Supercomputer

The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California San Diego and the  Simons Foundation’s Flatiron Institute in New York have reached an agreement under which the majority of SDSC’s data-intensive Gordon supercomputer will be used by Simons for ongoing research following completion of the system’s tenure as a National Science Foundation (NSF) resource on March 31. Under the agreement, SDSC will provide high-performance computing (HPC) resources and services on Gordon for the Flatiron Institute to conduct computationally-based research in astrophysics, bio...

AMD Collaborates with Microsoft to Advance Open Source Cloud Hardware

At the 2017 Open Compute Project U.S. Summit, AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) announced their collaboration with Microsoft to incorporate the cloud delivery features of AMD's next-generation "Naples" processor with Microsoft's Project Olympus -- Microsoft's next-generation hyperscale cloud hardware design and a new model for open source hardware development with the OCP community. Through Microsoft's contribution of the Project Olympus design much earlier in the cycle than many OCP projects, AMD was able to engage early on in the design process and foster a deep collaboration around the strategic integ...

How AMD’s Naples X86 Server Chip Stacks Up to Intel’s Xeons

Ever so slowly, and not so fast as to give competitor Intel too much information about what it is up to, but just fast enough to build interest in the years of engineering smarts that has gone into its forthcoming “Naples” X86 server processor, AMD is lifting the veil on the product that will bring it back into the datacenter and that will bring direct competition to the Xeon platform that dominates modern computing infrastructure. It has been a bit of a rolling thunder revelation of information about the Zen core used in the “Naples” server chip, the brand of which has not been r...

Nvidia Debuts HGX-1 for Cloud; Announces Fujitsu AI Deal

On Monday Nvidia announced a major deal with Fujitsu to help build an AI supercomputer for RIKEN using 24 DGX-1 servers. Midweek at the Open Compute Project (OCP) Summit in Santa Clara, Calif., the GPU technology leader unveiled blueprints for a new open source Tesla P100-based accelerator – HGX-1 – developed for clouds with Microsoft under its Project Olympus. (We’ll make an educated guess that the D in DGX-1 stands for Deep Learning and the H in HGX-1 for Hyperscale.) At roughly the same time, Facebook introduced Big Basin, the successor to its Big Sur GPU server, which also uses ...

Scientists develop new high-precision method for analyzing and comparing functioning and structure of complex networks

Researchers at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) and the University of Barcelona (UB) published a paper in Nature Communications presenting a scientific method for identifying, comparing and precisely determining objective differences between large nodes of complex networks. The new method makes it possible, for example, to compare and differentiate the functioning of brain networks in drug addicts and healthy individuals, thus advancing the study of the symptoms and effects of addiction on the brain. The method can also be used to more effectively analyze the functioning of...

AMD reveals Radeon Vega's final name, infuses Bethesda games with Vulkan

The expected showdown between Radeon Vega GPUs and the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti at GDC on Tuesday won’t be a showdown after all. New technical details about AMD’s hotly anticipated enthusiast-class graphics cards were almost nowhere to be found during the company’s “Capsaicin & Cream” livestream—though Radeon head Raja Koduri did reveal that the brand name for Vega GPUs will indeed be “Radeon RX Vega,” rather than RX 490 or RX 580. What a tease. Koduri also showcased a brief Deus Ex: Mankind Divided demo that suggested that Vega’s high-bandwidth cache controller can incre...
