With the 2nd EUDAT conference now just one month away, iSGTW speaks in depth to Richard Frackowiak, who will be giving the event’s opening keynote speech. Frackowiak is heavily involved in the EU's flagship Human Brain Project. He discusses the implications of this project for the future of computing and explains how big data is revolutionizing medicine.


Large-scale simulations are key tools for scientists seeking to understand the formation of galaxies after the Big Bang, including our own Milky Way.

Three of the US Department of Energy’s National Labs are partnering in an effort to develop a state-of-the art, cosmological simulation analysis toolbox. The project aims to take advantage of the US Department of Energy’s investments in supercomputers and high-performance computing codes.
