Swindon, Nov. 25, 2010: Today Cancer Research UK and Imperial College London outlined the fundamental importance of High Performance Computing to their future science and research strategies. The two organisations described how Intel® High Performance Computing (HPC) solutions are enabling them to drive forward their research, which will lead to future scientific breakthroughs.

 

Imperial College London currently spends over £1,000 000 on its HPC programme. “HPC allows us to simulate events that would be impossible or very difficult to measure experimentally,” stated Simon Burbidge, High Performance Computing Co-ordination Manager at Imperial College London. “For example, it is very difficult to reach the kind of temperatures such as those within the sun or plasmas in the real world, but by using HPC we can perform simulations to predict the results and thus tune the experiments.  Another area of research at Imperial College London is using HPC to model blood flows in human arteries, to drive insights into the conditions leading to heart and circulatory disease. It is also helping us to do better research at lower cost, for example where simulations can replace some of the wind tunnel tests used in automobile design."

 

Peter McCallum,  Head of IT & Scientific Computing at Cancer Research UK’s Cambridge Research Institute described the benefits that HPC has brought to his organisation, “Through HPC we can effectively sequence a human’s whole DNA. Medical units in hospitals may soon need HPC access to enable them to track disease. We believe that in the future there will be local access to HPC with a local scientific computing team in all biological science organisations. What happened in physics and chemistry twenty years ago is now happening in biology.”

Sean McGuire, Director Strategic Government Programs HPC EMEA at Intel stated, “HPC is an added direction for Intel. Through the Intel® Many Integrated Core (MIC) architecture we can achieve more compute power than would have been possible previously. It is an architecture that is designed for highly parallel workloads. We believe that it is an indication of where computing is going.”

 

Robert Maskell, Head of HPC for Intel in the UK added, “Analysts have been telling us for a while that HPC is now mainstream, I think it is even further along the curve than that. It is pervasive. It is difficult to think of any manmade object which has not been created without being touched by HPC during the design process. HPC has become one of the fundamental building blocks for science. Researchers are being deluged by floods of data. The question they are asking is how can they cost effectively process and securely store that data. We believe Intel’s Xeon range of processors deliver the energy-efficient performance that will allow researchers to draw ever quicker results and conclusions from their science.”

 

Intel Corporation announced plans earlier this year to deliver new products based on the Intel® Many Integrated Core (MIC) architecture that will create platforms running at trillions of calculations per second, while also retaining the benefits of standard Intel processors. Targeting high-performance computing segments such as exploration, scientific research and financial or climate simulation, the first product, codenamed "Knights Corner," will be made on Intel's 22-nanometer manufacturing (nm) process – using transistor structures as small as 22 billionths of a meter – and will use Moore's Law to scale to more than 50 Intel processing cores on a single chip. While the vast majority of workloads will still run best on award-winning Intel® Xeon® processors, Intel® MIC architecture will help accelerate select highly parallel applications.

 

Industry design and development kits codenamed "Knights Ferry" are currently shipping to select developers, and beginning in the second half of 2010, Intel will expand the program to deliver an extensive range of developer tools for Intel MIC architecture.

Home Improvement Category adds to Intel(r) AppUp(sm) Developer Challenge.

 

Home is where the imagination is. That is the thinking behind a new category in the $1,000,000 Intel AppUp developer challenge. Intel and Dixons Retail are teaming up to challenge developers to design an app for netbooks that allows users to interact with all sorts of electronic gadgets from right across the PC World, Currys and Dixons ranges.

 

The prize for the winner will be $15,000, and there are also 5 runners up prizes of $8,000. The format or type of the app is completely open. It could be a game. Maybe it features augmented reality. A 3D design tool might be nice. It could be anything, as long as it’s a netbook app that enables users to creatively interact with products from Dixons, Currys and/or PC World in a home context. The app will be able to link into real-time product data from one or more of these retailers. And you can also pull in data or images from sites with public APIs such as Etsy.com.

 

The winner will be judged on how well it engages users and encourages them to interact with the products.
