Sloan Foundation Grant Helps Globus Democratize Data Science16Apr2014The explosion of data across disciplines has opened up vast new possibilities for scientific discovery. But many researchers do not yet have access to the advanced infrastructure needed to work with Big Data and realize its full potential. With new support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, Globus can expand its mission to bring the advanced data management infrastructure used by massive science […]
High Performance Agent-Based Modeling in Repast HPCJohn T. Murphy, ArgonneMay 01, 2014Argonne TCS Building 240, Rm 5172Abstract: Repast HPC is a platform for creating agent-based models (ABMs) in any high-performance computing environment that implements parallelism using MPI. Repast HPC provides a simple framework in which users can construct models without knowledge of MPI or other low-level details of parallel computing, and has extended the power of HPC to a wide range of users in the […]
Data-Driven Policy Goes to Washington10Apr2014Through civic hacking events and open data portals, the Obama administration has embraced the potential of data and programming to improve the performance of government for its citizens. As academia and industry increasingly moves toward using computational techniques to inform policy decisions, these more ambitious efforts have also attracted the attention of the White House. On April 4th, the President's Council of Advisors on Science and […]
