The Key to Unlocking HPC's Value?News
Large-scale supercomputing is essential to solving complex questions about our world. But storage platforms essential for these advanced computer systems have been stuck in a rigid framework that required users to either choose between customization of features or high availability. Now, researchers have found a way to give high-performance computing data systems the flexibility to thrive with a framework called BespoKV, perhaps helping to one day achieve the HPC goal of performing at the exascale, or 1 billion billion calculations per second.READ MORE
MIT researchers have developed a cryptographic system that could help neural networks identify promising drug candidates in massive pharmacological datasets, while keeping the data private. Secure computation done at such a massive scale could enable broad pooling of sensitive pharmacological data for predictive drug discovery.
The architecture of each person’s brain is unique, and differences may influence how quickly people can complete various cognitive tasks.o learn more, scientists are developing a new tool — computational models of the brain — to simulate how the structure of the brain may impact brain activity and, ultimately, human behavior.READ MORE
Based on an analysis of data leakages and opportunities to prevent the potential misuse of genetic information, researchers have developed a new file format for functional genomics data that enables data sharing while protecting the personal information of research participants.
An artificial intelligence (AI) approach based on deep learning convolutional neural network (CNN) could identify nuanced mammographic imaging features specific for recalled but benign (false-positive) mammograms and distinguish such mammograms from those identified as malignant or negative.
A move to digitally scan 100% of slides by Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust Pathology Lab has been hailed as a crucial step to faster and better diagnosis of cancer.READ MORE
A computer-guided algorithm may help scientists find just the right spot to split a protein and then reassemble it to functionality, according to a new study. Researchers say this could be another step — perhaps even a dance step — toward using chemical and light signals to create new medical treatments and biosensors.READ MORE
