September 19, 2017: Computational cosmologists at Berkeley Lab recently achieved a critical milestone in preparation for upcoming CMB experiments: scaling their data simulation and reduction framework TOAST to run on all 658,784 Intel Knights Landing Xeon Phi processor cores on the NERSC’s Cori. The team also implemented a new TOAST module to simulate the noise introduced when ground-based telescopes look at the CMB through the atmosphere. Read More »
- Exascale and Beyond We're rethinking every aspect of scientific computing—hardware, software, algorithms, efficiency and networking—to address limits on processor speed, memory and energy consumption. The goal: more science per Watt.
- Data-Driven 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.
- Scientific Complexity 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.
