I’ve recently returned from a conference on Big Data and data-mining. These topics are becoming more and more important in the world of research computing, so I would like to present a series of short articles to cover the issues surrounding modern data management.
A major upgrade of the graphic display hardware which is used with the CyViz Viz3D system at the WestGrid Collaboration and Visualization Facility (WGCVF) was completed this past summer. If you are unaware of the unique services offered at the WGVCF, this facility offers superior videoconferencing capabilities which were recently augmented through the provision of a new Smart Board subsystem (see earlier BLOG entry). Additionally and more relative to this announcement, full stereoscopic 3D data display is supported using a rich portfolio of software applications. Furthermore, the facility provides a multi-participant collaborative environment (up to 12 individuals) with seating and table space that can be reconfigured to suit any specific meeting setting.
I see a number of blogs (I won’t go so far as to say that I actually read all of them) and forward things I feel are of interest to people. I have been asked to present some of these items to a wider audience. I hope that you’ll find them of interest, or perhaps even of use.
