Congratulations to NYU professor and Tech Summit keynote speaker Yann LeCun, one of three researchers to receive the 2018 Turing Award. LeCun, Yoshua Bengio and Geoffrey Hinton, were honored with the $1 million “Nobel Prize of computing” in recognition of their work in AI deep learning.
High Performance Computing
NYU HPC’s OpenStack Brooklyn Research Cluster is “being used…in such areas as machine learning, web crawling, data analytics, and in complex applications like genomics browsers and sign-language translation.”
The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) featured the SONYC project in their February, 2019 newsletter. SONYC’s goal is to leverage “the latest in machine learning technology, big data analysis, and citizen science reporting to more effectively monitor, analyze, and mitigate urban noise pollution.”
The NYU Holodeck is a cutting-edge shared virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) environment currently in development that will “create an immersive, collaborative, virtual/ physical research environment providing unparalleled tools for research collaborations, intellectual exploration, and creative output.”
Researchers1 from the NYU School of Medicine made use of NYU High Performance Computing (HPC) resources and Google’s deep learning artificial intelligence algorithm to advance the understanding of lung cancer and mutations in tumors. Using Google’s Inception v3 (an open-source algorithm) and the HPC neural network, they were able to accurately differentiate between two different […]
Rice is the staple food for approximately 50% of the world’s population. The rice of the future must be cultivated using less water, less land, and under severe environmental stresses. Mapping the rice genome is a step toward attaining these goals. Researchers at NYU are using high performance computing resources to achieve the task.
A team of students from the NYU Tandon School of Engineering recently built a prototype mobile app that translates spoken words into sign language to facilitate communication between deaf and hearing people.ARSL (Augmented Reality Sign Language) is part of Verizon’s Connected Futures challenge which, in partnership with NYC Media Lab, supports new media and technology projects from universities across New York City.
The NYU IT High Performance Computing (HPC ) group is now piloting an OpenStack cluster service. The pilot, a collaboration between NYU IT Research Technology and the ViDA project, provides local/private cloud services, enabling NYU researchers to deploy and use fully customized research computing environments. OpenStack eliminates the need to purchase and deploy local departmental […]
As part of its ongoing mission to remain at the cutting edge of high performance computing (HPC) and provide the best resources for researchers whose projects require HPC services, NYU IT’s HPC group, part of Research Technology, has recently undertaken significant expansion of its offerings. In particular, the HPC group is building a foundation to […]
NYU Abu Dhabi’s high performance computer (HPC) cluster, named “BuTinah,” after the marine-protected archipelago reserve off the coast of Abu Dhabi, will play a critical role in supporting the computational requirements of the NYUAD research community.
