Science at the Petascale: Advancing Global Scientific Projects Through Distributed Computing
An overview of three global science drivers – the Large Hadron Collider, gravitational wave detection, and the IceCube neutrino observatory, elucidating common patterns in the architecture of their global computing infrastructure. Learn about the role AWS can play in these large international projects using advancements in computing technologies as data volumes explode over the next decade.
Hear from Prof. Wuerthwein, an experimental particle physicist analyzing data from the Large Hadron Collider, who is the executive director of OSG responsible for providing an integrated data and compute platform that advances open science through distributed high-throughput computing. The platform has been used in the detection of gravitational waves (Nobel Prize 2017), the discovery of the Higgs Boson (Nobel Prize 2013), and many other scientific achievements.
