How to Use Mobile Devices to Solve Global Problems

How to Use Mobile Devices to Solve Global Problems | Complex Insight  - Understanding our world | Scoop.it

With initiatives like UN Pulse looking at using big data techniques for development Larry Irving discusses ideas for using mobile to change the world at the 2012 Social Good Summit. In 1999, half of the world had either never used a phone or had to travel more than two hours to reach the nearest one. Years later, mobile devices are being used in extremely innovative ways to connect and empower people around the world. Click on the image or title to learn more.

Fujitsu Boosts HPC with Xeon Phi - Go Parallel

Fujitsu Boosts HPC with Xeon Phi - Go Parallel | Complex Insight  - Understanding our world | Scoop.it

What a difference a year can make! Last year Fujitsu was focused on its K-Computer. With 88,128 traditional Sparc CPUs–each with eight cores for 705,028 total, K-Computer was declared the world’s fastest supercomputer in the 2011 Top500 Supercomputer list. In 2012, however, the K-Computer lost out to IBM’s Sequoia, which boasted more than twice as many PowerPC cores –1.5 million. Despite its high speed, the K-Computer consumed almost twice as much power per floating-point operation (825 GFlop/kWatt) compared to supercomputers based on the Xeon Phi, which are rated almost three times higher (2499 GFlop/kWatt) by the Green500 List. In addition, the ability to add 60-cores at a time with a single PCIe card drastically cuts the cost of HPCs.

All Things Distributed - All Things Distributed

All Things Distributed - All Things Distributed | Complex Insight  - Understanding our world | Scoop.it

There are a bunch of cloud and distributed computing blogs worth reading including:

 

Simon Wardley – Bits or pieces?
Ben Kepes – Diversity Limited
David Linthicum – The Infoworld Cloud Computing Blog
Krishnan Subramanian – CloudAve

 

But the one i keep coming back to is Werner Vogels - All things distributed.  Its good for insight and also for some great links to essential papers by Jim Greay that are deeply relevent to distributed computing developments.Certainly worth reading.
