Adaptive Computing Spans The DigitalGlobe

DigitalGlobe has worked for many years with Adaptive Computing, a maker of cluster and cloud management tools, to make its clusters more flexible, and the two are working together to adapt the Moab job scheduler at the heart of the Adaptive tools so they can hook into the data scheduling systems, putting both compute and data under the control of the same job scheduler. This effort, called Big Workflow, is part of the Moab 7.5 update that came out this week and the idea is to commercialize the data scheduling hooks created for DigitalGlobe and a number of other customers.

Drones In Action: 5 Non-Military Uses

Beyond the military, there are numerous potential uses for drones, or unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), such as law enforcement, storm tracking, search and rescue, and aerial surveying. But managing drones domestically comes with its own challenges, which still need to be addressed by the US government and the private companies involved.

Robot Sourcing and Rules for Selfies: The Moments That Stood Out at SXSW

There is the cloud, and there are robotics -- two fast-growing fields in technology. At SXSW, there were cloud robotics.

Cloud robotics showed what’s possible by connecting robots’ “brains” through wireless networking and storage. Automated systems would no longer be limited by their own individual memories and programs.

Group Likens Itself to Holocaust Denier, Blasts “Al Gore-Controlled” Apple

Richard Branson and think tank also trade barbs over “global warming spending” and greenwashing accusations.

What might have been a comment from a top tech executive aimed at stemming rebellious shareholders has quickly devolved into the latest hypersensitive reaction from those who feel global warming “deniers” are endangering the planet.

Sampling, Statistics and ‘Passion’ in Big Data

Can Big Data lead to big errors? On its face, the proposition that Big Data would lead to more errors seems counterintuitive. Having more data should lead to more sound, evidence-based decision-making. Instead of relying on guesswork, analysts can dive into data, use predictive analytics, look for trends and identify hidden connections.

  • Embedded Processor Selection Using FPGA-based Profiling
    Fadi Obeidat* and Robert H. Klenke**
    * Intel Corporation, Austin, TX, USA
    ** Virginia Commonwealth University, Virginia, USA


    In embedded systems, modeling the performance of off-the-shelf processors is very important to enable the designer to estimate the capability of each candidate processor against the target application. Considering the large number of available embedded processors, the need has increased for building an infrastructure by which it is possible to estimate the performance of a given application on a certain processor with a minimum of time and resources. This paper presents the use a Xilinx MicroBlaze softcore processor ...

ERSA 2014

The International Conference on
Engineering of Reconfigurable Systems and Algorithms

July 21 - 24, 2014, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

You are invited to submit your paper and/or proposal of dedicated sessions, tutorials, workshops, demos, and panel discussion sessions for consideration

ERSA’14 consists of two parts:

  • ERSA Academic Section
  • ERSA Industrial Section

The scope of ERSA covers broad area, from simple applications on programmable logic to complex, intelligent, high-performance, embedded systems implemented as multicore systems and heterogeneous parallel processing systems. All these complex systems involve reconfigurability on software and/or hardware level.

ERSA explores emerging trends and novel ideas in the area of parallel, reconfigurable, high-performance, heterogeneous computing systems architecture, design methods and applications. ERSA is promoting multidisciplinary research and new visionary approaches including bio-inspired architectures, computational biology, physics etc.
