“Making it easy to access high-performance computing and data-centric cognitive computing for science and engineering is a critical factor for industry acceptance.”
—Kirk E. Jordan
Our goal is to put the power of high-performance, data-centric cognitive computing in the hands of scientists and engineers through ease of use. In essence, we strive to make access to high-performance computing as easy as using a mobile device that front-ends a data-centric system.
The use of high-performance computing and simulation to support experimental science can greatly increase laboratory efficiency and provide additional insights into interactions not easily described by traditional methods. In collaboration, IBM Research in the UK, the Hartree Centre, and industry partners, driven by interactions with our partners’ web-lab scientists are developing in silico counterparts to the laboratory experiments they commonly perform as part of their R&D activity. Furthermore, we have enhanced and improved these in silico experiments with machine learning to speed overall calculations and improve results. All this is delivered to the web-lab scientist on a mobile device they can take to their bench or with them on their coffee break.
