- Extreme Data Science We develop tools and technologies and provide the critical networking and computer resources that help scientists turn enormous, widely shared, and complex data sets into discoveries.
- Energy Efficient Computing More science per Watt. That's the guiding principle as we rearchitect every aspect of scientific computing—from hardware and software, to algorithms, networking and data center operations.
- Science Engagement Engaging scientists in a holistic, team-based approach—from theory, observations and experiments to simulation and data analysis—is a grand challenge and goal of Computing Sciences at Berkeley Lab.
March 31, 2015: To find a standard 3D neuron reconstruction algorithm, BigNeuron will sponsor a series of international hackathons and workshops where contending algorithms will be ported onto a common software platform to analyze neuronal physical structure using the same core dataset. All ported algorithms will be bench-tested at NERSC, ORNL and Human Brain Project supercomputing centers. Read More »
March 20, 2015: Sean Peisert of CRD’s Integrated Data Frameworks Group has published a report from a DOE workshop on ASCR Cybersecurity for Scientific Computing Integrity. Peisert co-chaired the workshop held Jan. 7-9 in Rockville, Md. CRD Director David Brown and ESnet’s Brian Tierney were members of the workshop organizing committee. Eric Roman of CRD and Scott Campbell of NERSC participated in the workshop. Read More »
