Client+Cloud The Future of Research Dr. Daniel A. Reed Corporate Vice President Extreme Computing Group & Technology Strategy and Policy
Discovery and Innovation in 2020 In the last two decades advances in computing technology, from processing speed to network capacity and the Internet, have revolutionized the way scientists work. From sequencing genomes to monitoring the Earth's climate, many recent scientific advances would not have been possible without a parallel increase in computing power – and with revolutionary technologies such as the quantum computer edging towards reality, what will the relationship between computing and science bring us over the next 15 years? http://research.microsoft.com/towards2020science ” “
The Data Explosion Deliver the capability to mine, search and analyze this data in near real time Science itself is evolving
Last few decades The Changing Nature Of Research Thousand years ago Today and the Future Last few hundred years Simulation of complex phenomena Newton’s laws, Maxwell’s equations… Description of natural phenomena Unify theory, experiment and simulation with large multidisciplinary data Using data exploration and data mining (from instruments, sensors, humans…) Distributed communities
Microsoft’s Global Cloud Research Engagement Initiative
Venus-C & Microsoft Demonstrating Interoperability
Additional Engagements in France and the UK France’s Premier Research Lab and Microsoft have partnered to create a joint research center. Today we announce a new INRIA-MS are of collaboration on the topic of Cloud Computing. This project will demonstrate computational neuroscience using Client+Cloud Computing. Horizon is the EPSRC-funded “digital economy hub” at the University of Nottingham. Horizon’s Goals; driving adoption of ubiquitous computing and advancing the digital economy. Microsoft is providing a substantial Azure resource to the University of Nottingham and their collaborating universities.
