Students from the University of Warsaw (“Warsaw Team”) successfully took part in Student Cluster Competition at SC18, an international conference for high-performance computing. They incorporated GigaIO’s alpha product, FabreX into their self-designed supercomputing cluster, marking the team’s fourth cluster competition event. GigaIO, Inc., an innovator of datacenter network architecture and connectivity solutions, sponsored the team.
At the end of October, the US Department of Energy unveiled Sierra – the second leadership-class supercomputer delivered as a result of CORAL collaboration between Lawrence Livermore, Oak Ridge and Argonne national laboratories. Earlier this year, Summit was launched. Both machines are among the most powerful supercomputers on earth – Summit is #1 and Sierra […]
Genetics is one of the fastest growing fields of science. Knowledge of the DNA code allows for more and more sophisticated applications: from diagnostics of various diseases, through the development of new drugs and methods of treatment to predicting the probability of particular disease. The first analyzes of the human genome made several years ago […]
The PCJ library has been designed for modern supercomputers but it runs on any system with Java installed. It allows you to create highly scalable computing applications including implementation of Big Data or artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms. Performance tests show that applications built using PCJ are up to several dozen times faster than their counterparts […]
Meteo.pl, the well-known and popular web service providing numerical forecasts to the general public in Poland, is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. From its humble beginnings in 1997 to today’s reach of nearly 2 million unique visitors each month (which amounts to 5 percent of the Polish population) both the team and the service […]
Five IT students who formed the Warsaw Team under the supervision of Dr. Maciej Cytowski (ICM) have been honoured by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education with a grant for the most excellent student teams. Its aim is to support highly talented students in developing their scientific activity by enabling them to participate in […]
ICM again will grant researchers access to the Okeanos supercomputer – a Cray XC40 large-scale computing system. We invite researchers to submit their applications. Access to the Okeanos supercomputer will primarily be granted to scientists whose research requires the use of massively parallel computations. Three types of grants will be awarded, the details of which are […]
Dr. Marek Michalewicz is ICM’s new Deputy Director responsible for computational infrastructure. Previously, he was the Chief Executive Officer heading Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) Computational Resource Centre in Singapore. We asked Dr. Michalewicz about the biggest challenges of the Big Data era. “Very soon we will be trying to tackle problems that […]
