Research Internships in Big Data Available at PSC

The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC), a joint project of Carnegie Mellon, the University of Pittsburgh, and Westinghouse Electric Company, has openings for two undergraduate student interns to gain research experience relating to graph analytics for big data. The Sherlock project (www.psc.edu/sherlock) explores novel approaches to large-scale analytics, especially graph analytics and the development of sophisticated, heterogeneous workflows for big data. Sherlock features sophisticated, purpose-built computer hardware – a YarcData uRiKA data appliance with PSC enhancements – and optimized implementations of W3C-standard software. Research opportunities may include elements of data modeling and analysis, application development using RDF and SPARQL or natively on the graph analytic platform, and performance analysis. These internships, supervised by senior members of PSC’s Strategic Applications Group, will provide unique experience at the frontier of big data research.

Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center and ANSYS Partner to Provide High Performance Computing for Academic Research

Pittsburgh, February 4, 2013 — Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) today announced the formation of a strategic academic partnership with ANSYS (NASDAQ: ANSS), a leader in engineering simulation software. PSC is a national center for high-performance computing, funded by multiple federal and state agencies and a service provider (SP) in the NSF XSEDE program, enabling computational science nationwide. As a result of the new partnership, PSC will be able to provide exceptional engineering simulation resources to academia. It will be the only SP in the XSEDE program to offer access to the full ANSYS multiphysics simulation software suite.

Shawn Brown to Direct New Public Health Group at PSC

Shawn T. Brown, PhD, has joined the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) as Director of Public Health Applications. In this role, he will lead a new group at the PSC whose research addresses the problems of predicting disease spread via large-scale agent-based modeling, vaccine supply chain logistics in developing countries, and public health decision-making support via high performance computational modeling. This position is a unique one for a high-performance computing facility such as PSC, and is part of a general trend to use supercomputing to address "big data" problems in the life and public health sciences.
