This Thursday, April 26, Google’s Manager for Computational Discovery for Science, Joe Hellerstein, will discuss Google’s upcoming resources for computational research. The lecture will take place at 2:00 pm at Chesebrough Auditorium in the Chrysler Center.
Products soon to be released to U-M researchers include:
- massive computing and storage capabilities
- services to make powerful research tools both more widely available and easier to use
- scalable web services that enable access to research code, scientific tools and methods
Title: Google Cloud Services and the University of Michigan
Abstract: Google is rapidly developing its capabilities as a provider of cloud services. I provide an overview of the directions Google is pursuing with its cloud products. This is addressed to the University of Michigan as an enterprise. The remainder of the talk will provide details of the exacycle computing service that harnesses the Google infrastructure to create a top 10 supercomputer. I will provide details of one project underway that does molecular dynamic simulations to better understand certain drug pathways.
We are on the brink of a potentially revolutionary era of computing, and Google has asked for University of Michigan to collaborate in this effort. Please join us for more information!
Please RSVP if you plan to attend.
