It might be a long time before the general public is flying again, but the question remains: how high-risk is air travel in terms of viral infection? In an article for the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC), Faith Singer-Villalobos highlighted new, supercomputer-enabled research that explored how viruses travel – and transmit – on airplanes. The […]

ThinkParQ will host the annual BeeGFS Virtual Community Meeting on World Bee Day, May 20, 2020. BeeGFS is a parallel cluster file system, developed with a strong focus on performance and designed for very easy installation and management. “Following the overwhelming success of our inaugural BeeGFS Virtual Community Meeting that took place last October, the team is excited with the content we are preparing to share with the community, and we are currently finalizing talks with innovative BeeGFS users who will present alongside us in May,” says Frank Herold, CEO, ThinkParQ.

Today IBM announced that anyone in the world with a PC, laptop or Mac and an Internet connection could help scientists seek chemical compounds that might be effective against COVID-19. “The project, designed and led by Scripps Research, will be hosted on IBM’s World Community Grid. Volunteers download an app that works when their devices are otherwise idle or in light use. Operating unobtrusively in the background without slowing users’ systems, the app distributes computational assignments and returns completed calculations to researchers, all via the IBM cloud.”

The Great Infection is unique among recessions in that it is essentially a self-imposed economic downturn, not the result of over-exuberance or excess optimism or greed, but by a spikey ball of fat that is not alive but is more like a self-replicating biological machine that only knows how to do one thing: Copy itself if it reaches the right sticky environment in time before it dries out and falls apart. …

IT Spending Prognostication During The Great Infection was written by Timothy Prickett Morgan at The Next Platform.

The best thing most of us can do to fight COVID-19 is stay home, to curb the respiratory disease’s spread. But anyone with a computer can pitch in more actively too: by helping scientists design drugs to combat the virus now responsible for hundreds of thousands of infections worldwide..

A quantum internet could be used to send unhackable messages, improve the accuracy of GPS, and enable Cloud-based quantum computing. For more than twenty years, dreams of creating such a quantum network have remained out of reach in large part because of the difficulty to send quantum signals across large distances without loss..
