As a follow-up to my recent post, the full set of podcasts from this year's MSc guest lecture series is now available, either from the School's podcast page, or via our iTunesU channel.

Every Friday afternoon throughout March, an invited speaker from industry or academia gave a talk about the use of high-performance computing. Our students got to hear about how Intel is tackling the challenge of Exascale computing, how local company Integrated Environmental Solutions benefitted from using EPCC's HPC resources and expertise, how big data is revolutionising the field of bio-informatics, and finally details of a newly-standardised extension to C++ for parallel programming of heterogeneous algorithms!

Overall, we had a great series of speakers this year. I certainly found them interesting, and hope you will too.
