How Vectorization Feeds Your Need for Speed

So, you’ve written a program but it’s data-intensive and you need more speed without forking out for a new computer? Maybe you’ve tried alternative algorithms, maxed out concurrency but still need more speed.  Could be it’s time to try vectorization. What is Vectorization? Vectorization is CPU hardware that can speed …

Race for 1,000-MPH Car Design Is On

U.K. supercomputing network HPC Wales has challenged students to design rocket-powered cars that are capable of reaching speeds of 1,000 mph — and it’s giving them access to high-performance computing (HPC) resources to do it. HPC Wales, run by six universities, launched the competition in hopes of encouraging school-age children …

NASA Supercomputer Searches for Exomoons

The NASA Kepler space telescope has discovered more than 1,000 planets, including some that could sustain life. Now, researchers are using data from the telescope to hunt for potentially habitable exomoons, which are moons beyond our solar system. To search for exomoons, a team of Harvard astronomers has developed a …

Flower Power: Genes Reveal How Plants Survive Harsh Weather

Researchers say they’ve found evidence that genes that are sensitive to cold weather and droughts can help plants adjust to changes in climate and survive. These findings help scientists better understand how plants adapt and could one day be used to improve crops, according to a recent article on the …
