'Seminar - High-Performance Modelling & Simulation for Big Data Applications' image

Data-intensive modelling and simulation make efficiency critical as they typically require coping with multi-dimensional and multi-level integration and model state explosion. With applications from tourism through finance to life science, modelling and simulation is a dominant, modelling and simulation represent a dominant force in innovation. Nonetheless, their performance is nowadays arguably dominated by remote and local data movement overhead (network messages, memory and storage accesses), which poses a challenge to traditional computational paradigms.

This seminar will discuss emerging trends on "High-Performance Modelling and Simulation for Big Data Applications" under the cHiPSet umbrella a 33-country research and innovation COST Action. Funded by the European Commission as part of the Horizon 2020 programme, cHiPSet fosters one of the largest academia-industry engagements in Europe. It supports information exchange, synergy, and coordination of activities among leading European research groups and top global academic and industrial institutions. cHiPSet is open for collaboration with industry in Ireland and abroad.

This seminar will appeal to Data Scientists, Computational Scientists, CIOs, Statisticians and the wider tech community who wish to understand more about HPC, High Performance Modelling and Simulation for Data Applications.

The seminar will be delivered by Dr. Horacio Gonzalez-Velez, Associate Professor and Head of the Cloud Centre at National College of Ireland. Horacio is the vice-chair of the Cost Action cHiPSet and is a member of the Technology Ireland Innovation Forum Steering Committee.
