Interactive Supercomputing launches parallel computing blog
26 March 2008Tweet
Interactive Supercomputing has launched a multi-author blog to offer scientists, engineers and analysts new insights on how to solve problems faster with HPC.
The new Parallel Lounge blog aims to be an online resource for researchers seeking the latest in parallel programming approaches and HPC applications. The blog features regular contributions on a mix of real-world case studies of leading research institutions, YouTube video interviews, parallel programming constructs, and productivity in high performance computing. Recent topics have ranged from ‘Performance Tuning 101: Client-Server Communications and Vectorisation’ to trade-offs among approaches to accelerate Python and MATLAB applications.
Blog contributors will include, among others:
ISC CEO Bill Blake, who brings to the blog more than two decades of senior executive experience in developing high performance computing systems at companies such as Netezza and Compaq.
- MIT Professor Alan Edelman, an authority on HPC and numerical algorithms with parallel computing experience from organisations such as Thinking Machines.
- Steve Reinhardt, ISC’s vice president of joint research, who works closely with the nation’s research organisations in finding new ways to make high performance computing easier, more productive and more accessible to technical computing users.
- Viral Shah, a member of ISC Research, who recently received his PhD at UC Santa Barbara in the area of parallel sparse matrix and graph algorithms.
