Towards Big Data and HPC Convergence

HPC centers are no longer solely targeted for highly parallel modeling and simulation tasks. Indeed, the computational power offered by these systems is now being used to support advanced Big Data analytics for fields such as healthcare, agriculture, environmental sciences, smart cities, and fraud detection1,2. By combining both types of Read more…
