ORNL Captures Real-Time Images of Structures That Degrade Lithium-Ion Batteries

Scientists at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have captured the first real-time nanoscale images of lithium dendrite structures known to degrade lithium-ion batteries. The ORNL team’s electron microscopy could help researchers address long-standing issues related to battery performance and safety. Dendrites form when metallic lithium takes root on a battery’s anode and begins growing haphazardly. If the dendrites grow too large, they can puncture the divider between the electrodes and short-circuit the cell, resulting in catastrophic battery failure. To read...

FCC Sets Net Neutrality Rules

The New York Times

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission on Thursday released the details of the new broadband Internet regulations it approved last month. The rules were presented in a 313-page document that includes the rules, their legal justifications, and comments from the commissioners. Immediately upon the document's release, net neutrality advocates and broadband providers began examining it for insight. The new rules do many things beyond reclassifying broadband Internet as a telecommunications service. For example, the rules bar the creation of so-called ...

This problem challenges you to make use of the OpenCL parallel programming standard.

Similar to CUDA, OpenCL provides a standard for parallel programming in which computations are performed by "devices." In the case of OpenCL, these devices can be CPUs or GPGPUs (general purpose graphics processors).

Your challenge is to obtain access to a system with OpenCL (e.g. your own computer with OpenCL installed), write a program that prints out information about all of the OpenCL "platforms" and "devices" on that system, run the program on the sy...
