High-Performance Computing, Ecology Experts Team Up to Ease Study of Wildlife Movements (Jul 14, 2021)
Ecology and technology researchers collaborated to create the Spatial Ecology Gateway (SEG). SEG allows ecologists to upload GPS tracking data and develop in depth 2D or 3D models to show home ranges of animals.

Flyception 2.0: New Imaging Technology Tracks Complex Social Behavior (Feb 5, 2020)
Scientists at the University of California San Diego have a much clearer idea thanks to the evolution of an advanced imaging system designed to record ultra-precise brain activities in flies. Called "Flyception" when it was announced in 2016 as a system that could record freely walking flies, the new "Flyception2" employs a more advanced tracking and recording system that allows flies to move about uninhibited, allowing researchers to study brain activities during intricate behaviors.

The Most Human Algorithm (Feb 5, 2020)
It is now possible to predict who the best candidate for receiving an organ transplant is, know whether clients of a bank will return the loans they request, choose the films that best coincide with the interests of consumers, or even select someone's ideal partner.

Living Robots Built Using Frog Cells (Feb 4, 2020)
A book is made of wood. But it is not a tree. The dead cells have been repurposed to serve another need. Now a team of scientists has repurposed living cells -- scraped from frog embryos -- and assembled them into entirely new life-forms. These millimeter-wide "xenobots" can move toward a target, perhaps pick up a payload (like a medicine that needs to be carried to a specific place inside a patient) -- and heal themselves after being cut.

Researchers Report Progress on Molecular Data Storage System (Feb 4, 2020)
A team of Brown University researchers has made substantial progress in an effort to create a new type of molecular data storage system. In a study published in Nature Communications, the team stored a variety of image files -- a Picasso drawing, an image of the Egyptian god Anubis and others -- in arrays of mixtures containing custom-synthesized small molecules.

The Unanticipated Consequences of Containerization (Feb 3, 2020)
Imagine that you’re building a development with 500 houses. You don’t want to end up with a bungalow, a colonial and a loft all spackled together. Yet this is the inevitable result if none of the builders are talking to each other and there’s no easily accessible master plan.

Most of HPC Happens Under the Radar (Feb 3, 2020)
While supercomputers are arguably the most exciting segment of the high performance computing market, the majority of systems deployed in any given year do not fit into this elite category.

Supercomputer Simulations Reveal Details of Galaxy Clusters (Feb 2, 2020)
Inspired by the science fiction of the spacefaring Romulans of Star Trek, astrophysicists have developed cosmological computer simulations called RomulusC, where the ‘C’ stands for galaxy cluster. With a focus on black hole physics, RomulusC has produced some of the highest resolution simulations ever of galaxy clusters, which can contain hundreds or even thousands of galaxies.

Building a Federated Research Collaborative (Feb 2, 2020)
