HPC Industry Leaders Develop State-of-the-Art Network Communication Framework for Next Generation Programming Models
UCX (Unified Communication – X) will provide platform abstractions supporting various communication technologies for high-performance compute and data platforms

Materials scientists use ORNL’s CADES to transform big data to ‘smart data’ for rapid image analysis
— Materials scientists use ORNL’s CADES to transform big data to ‘smart data’ for rapid image analysis. ORNL material sciences researchers are collaborating with computer scientists in ORNL’s Compute and Data Environment for Science (CADES) to create a processing and analysis workflow for the expansive scanning probe and electron microscopy data generated at the Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences (CNMS).

Researchers use machine learning to find useful structural properties in neutron and x-ray data
— Using CADES compute and data resources, researchers are linking DOE experimental and computational facilities to uncover stacking faults in double-layered perovskite. Here is the title and blurb to use on the webpage: Researchers use machine learning to find useful structural properties in neutron and x-ray data. A team of ORNL researchers is using the lab’s Compute and Data Environment for Science (CADES) to analyze large volumes of neutron and x-ray scattering data to find and identify these defects—a first step to greatly reducing time researchers spend on comparing and contrasting scattering data to identify connections between structure and function.

U.S. to build two new world-class supercomputers
— The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced today two major efforts to push supercomputing power well beyond where it is today. DOE will spend $325 million on two extreme-scale computers to be built at national labs in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and Livermore, California.

Chinese supercomputer stays No. 1, Titan at ORNL still No. 2
— For the fourth consecutive time, Tianhe-2, a supercomputer developed by China’s National University of Defense Technology, has retained its position as the world’s number one system. Meanwhile, Titan at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, which was the top supercomputer in November 2012, remains number two.

Joint effort nabs next wave of US supercomputers
— Once locked in an arms race with each other for the fastest supercomputers, US national laboratories are now banding together to buy their next-generation machines.
