- 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.
November 13, 2015: A team of scientists from Berkeley Lab’s Computational Research Division has been awarded a two-year, $110,000 grant by Intel to support their goal of enabling data analytics software stacks—notably Spark—to scale out on next-generation high performance computing systems.
