Fringe events are key to the success of Datafest, and with over 40 running across Scotland there was plenty to choose from. We ran a small event to deliver key insights on the new developments in the application of supercomputing to large-scale data analytics and machine learning. Our colleagues gave a series of talks and attendees also had an opportunity to see a live supercomputer in action via Wee Archie. The event allowed for plenty of questions and in-depth conversations, notably around deep learning and using neural networks to solve real-life problems. It closed with Dr Adam Carter providing some further details on what makes a data scientist, and the various routes to development and further training.

Modern genome-sequencing technologies are easily capable of producing data volumes that can swamp a genetic researcher’s existing computing infrastructure. EPCC is working with the breeding company Aviagen to build a system that allows such researchers to scale up their data infrastructures to handle these increases in volume without compromising their analytical pipelines.

SHAPE (SME HPC Adoption Programme in Europe) is a pan-European initiative supported by PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe). The Programme aims to raise awareness and provide European SMEs with the expertise necessary to take advantage of the innovation possibilities created by high-performance computing (HPC), thus increasing their competitiveness. SHAPE allows SMEs to benefit from the expertise and knowledge developed within the top-class PRACE Research Infrastructure.
