Overview of Parallel Computing

May 23 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm ADT

Parallel computing is the business of breaking a large problem into tens, hundreds, or even thousands of smaller problems which can then be solved at the same time using a cluster of computers, or supercomputer. It can reduce processing time to a fraction of what it would be on a desktop or workstation, or enable you to tackle larger, more complex problems. It’s widely used in big data mining, AI, time-critical simulations, and advanced graphics such as augmented or virtual reality. It’s used in fields as diverse as genetics, biotech, GIS, computational fluid dynamics, medical imaging, drug discovery, and agriculture. Prerequisites: comfort in using the command line, able to understand a shell script and make simple edits to it, and knowledge of at least one programming language enough to be able to write a simple program.
