Astronomers believe that many planets – including our own solar system – emerged from giant disks of gas and dust spinning around stars. To understand these cosmic mechanisms, researchers have typically used simulations to separately examine planetary development and magnetic field formation. Now, new work by researchers from the University of Zurich and the University […]

Today MemComputing announced that its Xtreme Performance Computing (XPC) Software as a Service (SaaS) will be made free for evaluation to all researchers and developers working in response to the COVID-19 crisis. This initiative comes from MemComputing’s ambition to identify opportunities where its technology may aid the fight against the global pandemic. “MemComputing harnesses the power of physics to dramatically reduce compute times for today’s most complex computational problems associated with optimization, big data analytics, and machine learning. By providing a free evaluation of the MemCPU XPC SaaS, MemComputing hopes to accelerate the process of finding solutions to the COVID-19 crisis on a global scale.”

Kajaani University of Applied Sciences (KAMK) and IT Center for Science (CSC) are inviting companies, research institutes, and higher education institutions to an AIF Webinar on 22 April 2020 to discuss cooperation and new opportunities with High Performance Computing (HPC). The new national and European cutting-edge HPC resources (DL2021, EuroHPC/LUMI) combined with open data driven environments, artificial intelligence, and data analytics will enable interesting new application areas and ecosystems to be built around HPC..
TERATEC 2020 Forum, the international meeting for Simulation and High Performance Computing, organized in France, has been moved to October 13-14, 2020..

The hyperscalers and the largest public clouds have been on the front end of each successive network bandwidth wave for more than a decade, and it only stands to reason that they, rather than the IEEE, would want to drive the standards for faster Ethernet networks. …
