    Starting almost 10 years ago, the scientific and engineering community has been identifying the advances that exascale computing might enable, as well as the challenges involved in building and using affordable exascale computers. The challenges have, in particular, led to a great deal of anxiety and predictions that most of the current HPC ecosystem will have to be discarded and completely new solutions will have to be crafted for the hardware components, system architecture, programming languages and models, algorithms, and operating systems.

    6 hrs ago | DarkVision Hardware

    While we're still waiting on the retail availability of Intel's and Micron's 3D XPoint memory , Micron is already talking up its second-generation 3D XPoint as well as an all-new memory technology codenamed "New Memory B Gen 1". Not a lot of details are known about second-generation 3D XPoint but it's believed this memory will focus on increasing capacity rather than further boosting performance, as the first generation already blows everything SSD-based out of the water .

    17 hrs ago | CiteULike

    It is becoming clear that most human diseases have a complex etiology that cannot be explained by single nucleotide polymorphisms or simple additive combinations; the general consensus is that they are caused by combinations of multiple genetic variations. The limited success of some genome-wide association studies is partly a result of this focus on single genetic markers.
