PITTSBURGH, Penn., Jan. 25 – On February 1, the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) will host an event and symposium to launch its newest supercomputer, Sherlock. A uRiKA graph-analytics appliance from YarcData, Sherlock is designed to discover unknown relationships or patterns hidden in extremely large and complex bodies of information.
“Sherlock gives PSC the first system available to researchers that is optimized for a particularly difficult family of questions regarding, for example, security, medicine, public health, and social dynamics,” says Nick Nystrom, Director of Strategic Applications, PSC.
The 11 a.m. launch event will feature remarks by Ralph Roskies and Mike Levine, Scientific Directors of PSC. Other speakers will include:
The morning event will end with a demonstration by Nystrom of Sherlock's capabilities.
A 1 p.m. symposium will feature scientific talks by experts on graph analytics — the analysis of complex networks — including:
Their talks will focus on topics including:
Sherlock was funded through the Strategic Technologies for Cyberinfrastructure program of the National Science Foundation, through a grant of over $1 million. This funding joins nearly $500 million in federal and industrial funding that PSC has previously drawn to Pennsylvania.
