3D Map of Earth’s Interior

A team of researchers led by Jeroen Tromp at Princeton University used a GPU-accelerated supercomputer to create a detailed 3D picture of Earth’s interior. “This is the first global seismic model where no approximations — other than the chosen numerical method … Read more

Developer Spotlight: Automated Biomedical Image Annotation

Ishtar Nyawira, a data science intern at the Pittsburgh Supercomputer Center shares how she is using deep learning and the GPU-accelerated Bridges supercomputer to automate the process of biological image annotation from high-resolution scanning electron microscope (SEM) imagery. The goal of the project is to ultimately understand how the neurons in our brains are wired … Read more

23,000 Atoms Mapped for First Time

Scientists used an extremely high-resolution transmission electron microscope to capture 2D projections of the nanoparticle’s structure, and used an algorithm to stitch those together into a 3D reconstruction … Read more

Supercomputer Helps Understand How Jupiter Evolved

Researchers from ETH Zürich and the Universities of Zürich and Bern simulated different scenarios on the computing power of the GPU-accelerated Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS) to find out how young giant planets exactly form and evolv … Read more
