NCSA's GPU Hackathon now accepting applications
Prior GPU experience is not required, as those selected will be paired with experienced mentors who will teach them how to leverage accelerated computing in their own applications or further optimize their codes.
Research teams receive GLCPC allocations
Nine research projects from researchers at member institutions of the GLCPC have been awarded over 4.3 million node-hours on NCSA's Blue Waters supercomputer.
21 awarded for broadening participation
The Blue Waters project at NCSA has allocated over 3.7 million node-hours of computing resources to 21 research teams from across the country to broaden the diversity of the Blue Waters user community.
Blue Waters aids in providing real-time crop type data
The new technique can distinguish crops with 95 percent accuracy just two or three months after planting and well before harvest.
2018-19 Blue Waters Graduate Fellows
Ten graduate students from across the country have been awarded computation time, financial support, and dedicated staff expertise to advance their computational and data-intensive Ph.D. research on one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world.
TOTAL COMPUTING POWER DELIVERED
Since Blue Waters went into production on March 28, 2013, it has provided 22.7 billion core - hours to scientists and engineers across the country .
