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.
High Performance Computing
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.
On October 10th, 2011, professor Sargent and Princeton University professor Christopher Sims were honored by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences with the Noble Prize in Economics for “empirical research on cause and effect in the macroeconomy.”
NYU’s high performance computing systems are a vital resource for University research in the sciences and across the disciplinary spectrum. Here is just a sampling of recent research performed using NYU HPC resources.
Using NYU’s High Performance Computing service released a new support wiki. This wiki offers expanded information about the resources of the NYU HPC service—information that will help researchers whether they are currently using the service, just getting started, or considering using high performance resources.
A data center is a facility where an organization houses computer systems and servers, and the associated data storage, communications, and networking equipment. I thought back to the last data center move in which I was involved, about seven years earlier. Our task then was to move approximately 30 standalone servers and roughly 5TB of total disk storage.
