A supercomputer found a promising theory about why COVID-19 cases go downhill fast. It even explains the bizarre range of symptoms.

Tennessee researchers used a supercomputer to analyse lung fluid from coronavirus patients. They found that patients with severe cases may produce too much bradykinin, a chemical that regulates blood pressure. This could set off a chain reaction that leads to COVID-19’s bizarre range of symptoms – including cardiac, gastrointestinal, and […]

Intel and the Department of Energy are building America’s first exascale supercomputer, a computer capable of a quintillion calculations per second

Intel and the US Department of Energy announced Monday that they would build Aurora, described as the US’s first exascale supercomputer. An exascale supercomputer, capable of processing 1 quintillion (1,000,000,000,000,000,000) calculations per second, could be used for testing military weapons, modelling weather patterns, or doing research on cancer, cardiac issues, […]

HPE’s new supercomputer will be used by Stephen Hawking’s research group to crunch 14 billion years of information

Hewlett-Packard Enterprise will supply the the University of Cambridge Mathematics department, Stephen Hawking’s Centre for Theoretical Cosmology (COSMOS), with its fancy new supercomputer called the HPE Superdome Flex. The supercomputer will be joining other supercomputers in the COSMOS facility to study 14 billion years worth of data gathered by COSMOS […]
