From the skies to deep under the earth’s surface.
My colleague Xavier Vigouroux’s recently described the journey that supercomputers are taking, highlighting their progress in matching the processing power of the human brain. This might sound a little far-fetched, but supercomputers are already transforming ordinary people’s lives every day.
These incredible machines play a crucial role in everything from weather forecasts, designing cars that are safer to drive, as well as planes that are more cost effective to run. So what are some of the most exciting examples that scientists and engineers are working on today?
Understanding ageing processes and their relationship to disease
Genomic therapy and personalised medicine are now recognised as powerful tools. But the explosion of biomedical information requires a huge increase in the processing capability to analyse this data. For instance, the European Bioinformatics Institute’s … Continue reading ...
