U of Michigan Project Combines Modeling and Machine Learning

Although we’ve yet to settle on a term for it, the convergence of HPC and a new generation of big data technologies is set to transform science. The compute-plus-data mantra reaches all the way to the White House with President Obama’s National Strategic Computing Initiative calling for useful exascale computing and sophisticated data capabilities that serve the nation’s overarching goals around security, innovation and competitiveness.A champion of this paradigm, the National Science Foundation has been directing its resources toward providing the infrastructure and tools necessary to advance data-driven science at multiple scales. The NSF is making $2.42 million available for a unique facility at the University of Michigan, where a new computing resource, called ConFlux, will enable supercomputer simulations to interface with large datasets while running. According to a bold statement from the…
