Watson is letting local authorities know who’s overusing the scarce resource.
When researchers need to compare complex new genomes; or map new regions of the Arctic in high-resolution detail; or detect signs of dark matter; or make sense of massive amounts of fMRI data, they turn to the high-performance computing and data analysis systems supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
The illegal wildlife trade is emerging as one of the world's most lucrative criminal activities. Well-organized syndicates operating as transnational criminal networks linked to poaching often participate in other illegal activities, including trafficking of narcotics and weapons--some with ties to terrorist networks.
Children adopted from China may not remember the language of their birth country, but their brains still respond unconsciously to Chinese more than a decade later.
It has also been working with IBM to develop future chip offerings for high-end enterprise customers. Santa Clara, California
Scientists harness the power of thousands of computer processors simultaneously to better understand how the HIV virus interacts with the cells it infects, to discover or design new drugs that can attack the virus at its weak spots and even to use genetic information about the exact variants of the virus to develop patient-specific treatments.
Since Jeopardy!, Watson has become 240 percent faster and 75 percent smaller. Watson can now run on a single server, which is the size of four stacked pizza boxes, onsite or through the cloud. And that's why organizations can start bringing Watson into their operations as an assistant, to help sift through the information they're collecting, learn from that data and how it's been applied in the past, and provide specific suggestions quickly and efficiently.
"Once you have a magnetic cycle that builds up and develops in the simulation," he added, "you can analyze how that affects
"It's a very cool and sophisticated experiment, but not yet a universal computing machine," Dr. Charles M. Marcus, an expert
Key features of Cluster Compute Eight Extra Large include the following: • 2 Intel Xeon processors, each with 8 hardware
The IBM "Jeopardy!" Challenge poses a specific question with very real business implications: Can a system be designed that
