The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at UC San Diego is on the verge of deploying a new kind of supercomputer designed specifically to handle the largest data sets science and engineering can muster. The system, named Gordon, will incorporate a vast amount of flash memory. Gordon was made possible by a $20 million grant from the National Science Foundation, and is dedicated to solving critical science and societal problems now overwhelmed by the avalanche of data generated by the digital devices of our era. Dr. Michael Norman, Director of SDSC, will describe the potential scientific breakthroughs Gordon could will enable. His presentation will also illustrate how businesses can access Gordon and the know-how behind it related to the community’s needs. Online registration can be found here.
