PSC has been providing computing power and expertise to aid the national scientific and engineering community in their research for over twenty years. Represented below is just a fraction of the significant research that has been accomplished at PSC.
The PSC is proud to enable important research in fields spanning the gamut of scientfic endeavor. Just a few examples of the research facilitated by PSC's advanced computing resources and excellent technical support are found in Projects in Scientific Computing, an annual report highlighting the best research conducted at PSC over the last year.
Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing on Blacklight
Blacklight, PSC’s SGI Altix UV 1000, on which applications can access up to 16 TB of hardware-enabled coherent shared memory, is enabling groundbreaking research in machine learning (ML), natural language processing (NLP), game-theoretic analysis, and related computer science disciplines. These projects are paving the way toward automated reasoning and unprecedented data analytics.
