This week the UK government announced its plans for a digital strategy to accelerate the growth of high-tech industry – including a review to define conditions for the ‘artificial intelligence industry to thrive and grow in the UK.'
A collaboration between the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), and ExxonMobil has set a new record for the number of processors used for an oil and gas reservoir simulation. The teams managed to increase the number of processor working on this simulation to 716,800, around four times the previous record.
Researchers at Land Rover BAR are hoping that their latest entry for the America’s Cup will have the edge over the competition thanks to a rigorous modelling and simulation programme managed using Siemens Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software.
Autoscribe Informatics has announced that the biorepository at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital has deployed a Matrix Gemini laboratory information management system (LIMS).
Altair has announced that it will increase the simulation capabilities of its HyperWorks software portfolio with the addition of SantosHuman’s Santos Pro to its Altair Partner Alliance
The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) is funding eight new research projects that will help people self-manage chronic conditions, such as COPD and diabetes, at home while linked to support from carers and clinicians – funded through a 10 million pound investment.
The research will take place at seven UK universities; involve over 30 partners from industry, charities and the public sector who will add contributions worth over three quarters of a million pounds.
Researchers at the UK’s Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) are demonstrating a software framework that can automatically generate computer code which enables scientific applications to run on supercomputers.
